After that, the cost is $50 general and $85 VIP.  Additional sponsorship information can be found on the event Website at

“We chose the Marriott again this year, because they understand events and they treat our guests like royalty, we are thrilled to be back” said Scott Brook, the Festival of the Flutes co-chair.  “This is our largest community service and event.” Since its inception, the Festival of the Flutes has raised almost $100,000 for various worthy causes.
