A Cultural-Arts Organization Serving the Community of Sisters, Oregon
Sisters Folk Festival, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1995 to bring the finest in acoustic music to the charming town of Sisters, Oregon. Over time, it has developed into a cultural-arts organization that supports local schools, community members, artists and businesses with cultural events year round.
Beyond the three-day Festival, SFF Inc. is responsible for the wildly successful educational outreach program, the Americana Project, the exciting community-themed arts fundraiser, My Own Two Hands, the intimate Americana Song Academy, a superb Winter and Summer Concert Series and the overarching annual membership opportunity, the Sisters Folk Arts Circle.
Sisters Folk Festival leaves $1.2 million dollars in the local economy!
In 2009, SFF, with support from The Ford Family Foundation and the Deschutes County Commissioners, commissioned Dean Runyan Associates to assess the economic impact of our September festival on the local economy. The results are astounding and the benefits to our small, rural community are significant.
