You can be part of and support the festival in different ways.


Your investment in the Festival del Lago Music Academy will support transformative educational opportunities for our students through our scholarship training program – a commitment that provides affordable tuition, lodging, and meals to every Academy student. Your generosity will also enrich the cultural landscape of the Ajijic and Chapala communities.

By making a tax-deductible contribution to the Music Academy, you make possible a world of opportunities for the exceptional young artists who train and perform at the Academy.

Also, if you want to visit Ajijic as an Academy donor, you will have the opportunity to expand the way you experience music: attend behind-the-scenes rehearsals, masterclasses, and many other exclusive events and receptions not available to the general public.

We invite you to make one-time or recurring donations online via Paypal. Thank you for your valuable support.


If you live near or in Ajijic, or if you want to enjoy this beautiful Mexican village during the summer, live the experience of Festival del Lago and join us as a volunteer! The more helping hands we get, the better festival we will have. We will be happy to welcome you. Please contact us for more information.

Host a young artist

Festival del Lago has an expanding network of volunteers who offer their beautiful homes in Ajijic to students, faculty, and volunteers during the festival. If you would be interested in supporting the festival by offering a room, it is an excellent way to support the local summer music scene and encourage the development of young musicians.

If you are interested in hosting, please email us at, and we’ll get in touch.
