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 year-round cultural-arts organization that supports local schools with extensive community engagement.

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 Concert Series and the overarching annual membership opportunity, the Sisters Folk Arts Circle.

The Sisters Folk Festival
The Sisters Folk Festival is a three-day celebration of American music, “from blues to bluegrass.” The annual Festival is held in September on the weekend after Labor Day in the beautiful town of Sisters, Oregon.
The Festival covers seven stages, and includes workshops, the Dave Carter Memorial Song Writing Contest and performances by internationally recognized artists and the best of up-and-coming talent in folk, blues, bluegrass, and all genres in between.


Americana Song Academy
The Americana Song & Arts Academy is held at Caldera — an intimate lodge and camp by the pristine waters of Blue Lake in the Cascade Mountains. Gourmet food, clean air, and tall trees create the perfect mood to immerse in music. Join the supportive community of folks that call “Song Camp” home each year for a pilgrimage back to your creative self.

Participants spend three days with Sisters Folk Festival performers and visual artists learning various elements of both musical and visual arts.

Winter Concert Series
Attended by music lovers throughout the region, these concerts showcase nationally touring acts in the charming community of Sisters and provide a cultural experience for all ages. Visiting artists teach and inspire local students as part of the Americana Project curriculum.

Sisters Americana Project
The Americana Project was developed to inspire the creativity of young people and to demonstrate the cultural and historical significance of American roots music and cultural expression.

As a collaboration between the Sisters Folk Festival, Sisters School District and Creative Educational Resources, LLC, the Americana Project has provided a forum for self-expression, creativity in the performing and visual arts, and community engagement. The celebration of art and the human condition through self-expression is alive and thriving within the Sisters community.

Students in Sisters — from 5th graders singing traditional spiritual songs, middle school students writing and performing original songs, to high school students writing, recording, teaching and performing — are encouraged to develop their creative side and express themselves artistically.

My Own Two Hands
My Own Two Hands is a community themed arts fundraiser that draws from the talents of over 200 professional Central Oregon artists and students in all three schools to create pieces of art around a central theme. MOTH celebrates how each individual can change their community for the better with their own unique talent and skills.

The two-day event is a celebration of art and music, and consists of an art stroll throughout town, a performing arts evening showcasing music by Americana Project students, and an art auction and party.

My Own Two Hands was awarded the 2006 Fundraising Event of the Year by the Oregon Festival and Events Association and has raised over $330,000 in support of arts education in the Sisters Schools.

Sisters Folk Arts Circle
