The Festival at Sandpoint’s annual meeting is set for 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 5, at Pend d’Oreille Winery. There will be a Sip n’ Shop event where 10 percent of all purchases that evening will benefit the nonprofit music festival.

Festival organizers will recap the organization’s 35th annual season and highlight their plans for 2018.

Early Bird Season Passes are now on sale for the Festival’s 36th annual summer concert series, Aug. 2 – 12, for $199 (plus sales tax and city park fee) for all eight nights of music at Memorial Field. If any passes remain, the price will increase to $259 on Dec. 1. The full line-up will be announced on April 27. There are less than 100 season passes left of the 700 annually available for the popular summer music festival.

The Festival also reminds supporters that if they make an annual contribution to the nonprofit organization by Dec. 31, they will receive a tax deduction for 2017.
