Hiawatha Membership

The Hiawatha Music Co-op loves its Members!  We can't thank each of you enough for the support you give to Hiawatha through your annual Membership dues. Your Membership not only supports the Festival, it helps fund additional traditional music events during the year, gives us a cushion against unexpected expenses, and also helps us keep a small staff and office, which, in turn, helps the Festival and other events run more smoothly.


Memberships run according to a calendar year (this is a change from the past, when the Membership year ran from Festival to Festival).  Current 2023 Memberships expire on December 31, 2023.  We are currently only selling 2024 Memberships, and in an effort to help our members transition from the old membership calendar to the new one, purchasing a new 2024 Membership means you are a current member in good standing for the remainder of 2023.  Please note: Festival perks that come with a 2024 membership are not available until the 44th Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival in 2024.  


Lifetime membership from the earlier days of the Music Co-op are STILL GOOD! Hiawatha will continue to honor those lifetime memberships. Life members will receive all newsletters and can vote at the annual meeting and serve on the board of directors, same as always. However, if you are a life member who can support HMC annually as part of the current program, we invite you to do so.

All Hiawatha's costs continue to rise: performer fees, venue rentals, printing, postage, taxes (yes, we pay them, even as a non-profit), etc. So please take this opportunity to support the Hiawatha Music Co-op and its commitment to traditional American music.
