The text "GALA Choruses, the Road to Festival," appears over a white background which fades into a full crowd of people of many different identities from Festival 2016 in Denver.

What is Festival?
GALA Choruses signature event is our quadrennial Festival, which gathers LGBTQ+ choruses from all over North America and the world. Festival is five days of singing, connecting, and creating. It’s wall-to-wall concerts, workshops, social events, joy and pride. It’s the largest LGBTQ choral event in the world. It’s you with thousands of your peers taking over a city and filling it with song.

By the Numbers
GALA Choruses Festival will gather about 7,000 singers from 122 choruses this summer in Minneapolis. This is just a portion of the more than 15,000 singers and nearly 200 LGBTQ+ choruses in North America and beyond who make up GALA Choruses. Festival 2024 choirs will perform at world-class venues in downtown Minneapolis including Orchestra HallThe Minneapolis Convention Center, and Central Lutheran Church. Festival 2016 in Denver, CO, gathered more than 6,000 singers in-person and more than 14,000 unique viewers online.
