The Mariposa Folk Festival values personal growth and development, and seeks to expose patrons to ideas and experiences that will enable them to learn and grow. To further this objective, a Community Village has been established as part of the annual festival to allow not-for-profit organizations and government agencies to provide information and answer questions about important community issues. 

To be eligible for a booth within Community Village, organizations must be either not-for-profit organizations or non-profit government agencies, and must be well established in the region. Membership organizations must be open to the public at large to join. Religious organizations, political entities, for-profit businesses and for-profit government organizations are ineligible to apply.

Retail sales and fundraising are not permitted, and any breach of this provision will result in immediate forfeiture of the booth space.
