What is the cost of attending a concert?
Music at Fieldcote prides itself on being publicly funded and has become an integral part of the Ancaster community for 23 years. It is because of the dedicated viewers and our sponsors that the Fieldcote performances have grown to become part of an Ancaster staple. It is this reason why we ask for your donations to help fund and support current and future performances. The Fieldcote Stage has helped many artists get exposure over the years and provide an artistic avenue for those in the community. Donations are collected at the gates by our volunteers. Donations can also be made online and via check to Fieldcote Memorial Park and Museum.
