February 22 - 27, 2023

(preliminary, subject to change)

We are honored to announce the IOHIO’s 14th Organ Festival, postponed from February 2022, and look forward to resuming our celebration of Oaxaca’s historic pipe organs. The final program and fee schedule will be posted in November, but for now please save the dates.

It is of course impossible to predict the COVID situation in Oaxaca/Mexico/North America next year, but we are committed to carrying this project through and will take all necessary precautions to insure the health and well-being of our participants.

As in past years, participants are responsible for their own transportation and lodging in Oaxaca, with meals included along with the festival activities. If you make travel arrangements now, you might consider booking flexible tickets just in case.
