GALA Choruses Festival 2024
Wednesday, July 10–Sunday, July 14

in Minneapolis, MN

Registration for Festival 2024 will open in Spring of 2023.

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.

This Festival 2024 PowerPoint can be adapted for use with your own chorus - PPT.

By the Numbers
GALA Choruses Festival celebrates more than 15,000 singers representing nearly 200 LGBTQ* choruses in North America and beyond. 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 6000 singers in-person and more than 14,000 unique viewers online. We expect even more folks to join us both in-person and online for Festival 2024.
