Here are some important items of interest:

The website is ready to go. You may now order tickets and prepare for everything that is going on. A few more pictures and updates will probably occur but the main information is there.

We are now updating the Gazebo sign-up sheet. If you want to perform at the Gazebo, go to the gazebo section of the website for instructions. http://www.accordioncelebration.org/gazebo.html . There are other performance opportunities: The Grange concerts on Fri and Sat afternoons, the Gingerbread Factory, the LIAC Dance Band in the Festhalle on Sat evening, the Gazebo jam session on Fri and Sat afternoons at the Gazebo, and the jam session at Andreas Keller in the evenings.

LIAC 2017 will be another great event

Dear Friends of the Accordion,

First of all, thank you so much for your interest in the Leavenworth International Accordion Celebration (LIAC). This festival is put on by volunteers and without your interest and support there will be no accordion festival like this in the Pacific Northwest.

Second, we are currently updating the website so you will still see some 2016 items on the website until we are fully updated. This will take a few weeks.

We will continue with the format utilizing the Festhalle, Gazebo, and Grange with concerts, workshops, sign-up sheets for performing, vendors, and our special accordion competition.
Our website is currently being updated for 2017: www.accordioncelebration.org .

All our evening concerts will be top-quality as usual. See details of these performances on our Performers page.

Our Thursday concerts will have:
Steve Albini – Roland
Sergei Teleshev – Bayan
Music and Dancing Lyle and Toby’s Polka Parade

Our Friday concerts will have:
Northwest Accordionaires
Kim and Dan Christian
Music and Dancing Zydeco Rex

Our Saturday concerts will have:
Performance by winner of Leavenworth Open
The Portatos
Stas Venglevski
Music and Dancing LIAC Jam Dance Band

LIAC will be held on June 15 – 18, 2017. This will be LIAC number 24 and the 8th year the Northwest Accordion Society has produced the festival. The first seven years were very successful and we will continue to fine-tune events to make LIAC 2017 live up to our high standards.

The LIAC committee is pleased to announce that the bursary program will continue. To that end, we must raise money specifically for that purpose. It has been a goal of the accordion celebration to encourage and support accordionists, particularly young accordion students. Please consider donating money for the bursary program; it’s an investment in the future of the accordion in our region.

To donate, please go to the Home page of our website: www.accordioncelebration.org .

We look forward to seeing you at LIAC 2017
Bonnie Birch and the LIAC Committee
