World Class Music by the Lake
Come Experience Brilliance
Welcome to the Skaneateles Festival
A dynamic 4-week music festival providing intimate access to the world’s best music in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region.
For more than 40 years we have brought some of the world’s most talented musicians to perform on our stage, with the hope of building community and enduring friendships through music. Our goal is to provide an experience that is inspiring, joyful, and engaging.
JULY 26 – AUGUST 19
“Welcome to the 44th season of the Skaneateles Festival!
The world has changed, but the power of live music to move us, uplift us, and draw us together is as strong as ever before. No YouTube video can match it. This season, come experience some of the world’s top performers, intimate performances of classics, and new, genre-bending music to astonish and invigorate.
See you at the Lake!”
