A $1,000 non-refundable deposit is required when returning the Fiesta-val contract.
All festival payments, with the exception of the deposit, are based on the estimated number of participants on the application form. The guaranteed count will be the participant numbers on record one month prior to the festival. If registration is received after a due date, payment(s) will be retroactive.
- $1,000 non-refundable deposit registers group
- 50% of balance due three (3) months prior to festival
- Final Payment due one (1) month prior to festival
The final payment is to be paid no later than one month prior to the group's festival date. At that time, the final balance may be adjusted to reflect the group's total number of participants (guaranteed count). After one month prior to the group's festival date, any increase in numbers will be determined by Fiesta-val according to availability of hotel space, tickets, etc. Any decrease in numbers will be compensated according to Fiesta-val's individual cancellation policy.

Broadway performer enjoys judging Fiesta-val
Marc Dalio's route to Broadway took an interesting set of turns, some luck, and the support of his parents and mentors.
With a long list of professional theatrical credits, including starring roles in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Les Miserables, Pippin, West Side Story, South Pacific and others, Dalio - a choral judge for Fiesta-val - wasn't very interested in singing or theater growing up.
"We are back from Pigeon Forge and the trip was awesome! The kids had such a great time! Thank you for all your help planning and setting things up for us – the hotel was perfect and the festival location and the adjudication were top notch."
- Pamela Letts, Band Director, H.B. du Pont Middle School
"The students had an amazing trip and came home feeling very happy and proud. Thank you for all of the hard work you all put into making the event such a success."
- Melissa Donnelly, Treasurer, Brewer Music Association, Brewer High School
"We have worked with Fiesta-val for over thirty plus years and have been pleased each and every time. They make it so easy in all forms of communication.
