First of all, thank you so much for your interest in the Leavenworth International Accordion Celebration (LIAC). This festival is put on by volunteers and without your interest and support there will be no accordion festival like this in the Pacific Northwest.

Second, we are currently updating the website so it will be a few weeks before all information is out there..

We will continue with the format utilizing the Festhalle, Gazebo, and Grange with concerts, workshops, sign-up sheets for performing, vendors, and our special accordion competition.

All our evening concerts will be top-quality as usual. See details of these performances on our Performers page. Schedule not yet finalized

Music and Dancing LIAC Dance Band

LIAC will be held on June 20 - 23, 2019. This will be LIAC number 26 and the 10th year the Northwest Accordion Society has produced the festival. The first nine years were very successful and we will continue to fine-tune events to make LIAC 2019 live up to our high standards.

The LIAC committee is pleased to announce that the bursary program will continue. To that end, we must raise money specifically for that purpose. It has been a goal of the accordion celebration to encourage and support accordionists, particularly young accordion students. Please consider donating money for the bursary program; it's an investment in the future of the accordion in our region.

To donate, please go to the Home page of our website: www.accordioncelebration.org .

We look forward to seeing you at LIAC 2019
Bonnie Birch and the LIAC Committee


We look forward to your joining us as we celebrate our 26th year.
