Greening Mariposa

Mariposa Folk Festival decided in 2009 to go green in a big way. Thanks to the dedication of our volunteers, audiences, funders and partners, we continue to make reductions in our environmental footprint, and great strides in the promotion of environmental education!



Mariposa Folk Festival could not be where we are today without the generous support of grantors and sponsors! Thank you for your belief in our cause!



Our camping is in a lovely, mostly treed area just a short walk from the festival stages. Much of the camping area has a view of the lake, and there’s easy access to the beach for all campers too!
