Festival Description

The annual Lancaster Festival is an annual July celebration of music and art with events held in all corners of Lancaster, Ohio. The “Lancaster Festival” was inaugurated in 1985, under the artistic direction of Maestro Badea. In 1986 the programming expanded to include ballet, folkloric dance and drama. Performances and special events at locations throughout the city included a mixture of classics, jazz, Broadway, bluegrass, arts and crafts, food, fun, and fireworks. In 2010, the Lancaster Festival Orchestra and Maestro Gary Sheldon were the first recipients of the American Prize in the professional orchestra division for Orchestral Performance and in Conducting.
