Here's the latest list of Sponsors

Please thank our wonderful sponsors when you see them

Virtuoso Sponsors 

Projekt Bayern -
Projekt Bayern is a non-profit organization in Leavenworth that supports the Bavarian theme, supports many local projects, and enriches the town's artistic culture. With their generous donation, they have made it possible to bring top entertainers to LIAC and increase our scholarship and competition awards.

Frank Calapristi memorial fund

Barbara Calapristi has generously donated to LIAC in honor of Frank who loved Leavenworth and the accordion festival. He was very important in keeping LIAC going all these years. Please see the bench at the gazebo that the family built in honor of Frank and his wife, Loretta.  Also enjoy the Frank Calapristi accordion parade during LIAC. Frank Calapristi (1932 – 2021) will always be remembered.
