The Golden Gate Festival provides billeting for international choir members aged 20 years and younger. Choristers will be housed in local homes from Sunday evening, July 8, through Sunday morning, July 14, 2018. All domestic choirs may request billeting with local families; however, billeting for these choirs is on a space available basis. Choirs are only eligible for housing if all registration materials are submitted and all fees paid by the deadlines set. Homestay families will provide all meals and transportation; they will also serve as cultural ambassadors, introducing their guests to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Housing is not provided for choirs from the San Francisco Bay Area.

All participating choirs make their own housing arrangements for singers ages 21 and up, as well as for all adult staff and chaperones.
