Give your family and friends something that will last all year—a one-year membership in Pennsylvania Music Preservation Society (PAMPS), producer of the Great Pennsylvania Music & Arts Celebration on Memorial Day Weekend at the Allentown Fairgrounds. Your gift recipient will receive VIP parking and seating at the next Celebration, discounted ticket prices, recognition in our programs and handouts, invitations to meet & greet receptions with headliners, and entry into a drawing for valuable gift cards. Due to the cancellation of previous events and the pandemic, new and existing memberships will be extended until December 31, 2023.

Your purchase of a $40 membership (see the link below) will help keep the admission-free Celebration a major platform for showcasing some of the state’s top performers and artisans, while also giving emerging young musicians a platform to gain exposure and experience.  Memberships also help support our education and veterans’ initiatives throughout the year.

If you love music—all kinds of music—and want to help the Great Pennsylvania Music & Arts Celebration continue to grow as a free public event on Memorial Day Weekend, then join us by becoming a member of Pennsylvania Music Preservation Society (PAMPS).   We’re the non-profit organization that produces the annual Celebration at the historic Allentown Fairgrounds.

Your annual membership fee of $40 will not only help underwrite the budget for the diverse musical groups that perform with us each year, and will also demonstrate your tangible support of our efforts to preserve Pennsylvania’s rich music heritage, to honor and support our military veterans, and to put “Memorial” back in Memorial Day.  Your support, in turn, will translate into broader public recognition and corporate sponsorships.
