The annual Liszt Festival is the focal point of each year's American Liszt Society calendar of events. Historically, festivals have been held at a wide variety of locations in the United States and Canada. Festivals are typically hosted by a university, a library, a local ALS chapter, or a music performance organization. Those interested in hosting a festival should contact the President of ALS.

International festivals have been added to provide performance opportunities abroad for ALS members. Such festivals have been held in China, Budapest, Prague, Brazil, and Italy.
