SymFest – our outside-the-box concert and cultural celebration – returns by popular demand!
The entire Hult Center will burst with activity! Included in your ticket, enjoy beer, wine, and cider tastings with live music. A fleet of food carts (food not included in concert ticket) will surround the outdoor plaza and beer-garden. In Soreng Theater, immerse yourself in performances by local arts groups before the concert and a jazz lounge afterward. End the night dancing to a DJ in the lobby!
