NCMC Springfest

WHAT: NCMC Springfest
WHEN: Saturday, May 18, 2019
WHERE: Downtown Northampton

Full Schedule Here

Springfest is an annual event that brings together students, teachers and ensembles of the Northampton Community Music Center for a day of outdoor performances at sites along Main Street in downtown Northampton. Historically, more than 50 local businesses support this event each year, and box donations are collected throughout the day, raising more than $10,000 for NCMC's scholarship program.​

Students are encouraged to participate in Practice-a-thon, whereby they gather pledges from family and friends for their practice time during the month leading up to Springfest. Exciting prizes are awarded to the students who practice daily and raise the most funds for the scholarship program.  A party for all participants is held each June.

If you own or manage a business that would like to sponsor Springfest, please contact the Executive Director at (413) 585-0001. Click here to view the available sponsorship packages.
