The 2019 Glenn Miller festival is fast approaching. We are asking for your support to become a sponsor of this popular music festival. Now in its 44th year, the festival celebrates the life and music of Alton Glenn Miller, America’s favorite musical patriot. Guests from all over the country and overseas enjoy a weekend of music, programs, and scholarship competitions.

The Glenn Miller festival has become the one of the longest-running and most attended tourist entertainment events in Iowa and surrounding areas. In 2018 the festival entertained 4,215 guests from 46 different states and 6 foreign countries as well as over 47 communities across Iowa. Many of these guests spend multiple days in Clarinda attending the festival and touring the area. The Glenn Miller festival has a direct economic impact on tourism-related industries in the region, as guests spend money on lodging, food, gas, souvenirs and the like throughout the area. According to the Travel Federation of Iowa, in 2018 domestic travelers spent $8.5 billion dollars attending events in Iowa and $15 to $20 million dollars in Page County. This revenue has a huge impact on our community and your support helps us continue with exceptional entertainment for the yearly Glenn Miller festival.
