Blue Mountain Festival is incorporated as a 501(c3) non-profit and approved as a public charity under section 170 of the IRS Tax Code. BMF is committed to creating exceptional musical opportunities for children and young adults, and to making those opportunities accessible to families from all socio-economic backgrounds. Your donation can help make this possible.
You are invited to put your name on our list of valued volunteers at the Blue Mountain Festival. Volunteers are the backbone of the Festival. We couldn't achieve the excellent quality of our educational and performance events without them. Each year the Blue Mountain Festival grows in community support and the quality of its programs. If you would like to help to make the upcoming season the most successful yet, you can volunteer to provide much needed assistance in helping us produce Festival activities and events. For more information please contact Sherri Anderson, Executive Director, at (484) 832-4660.
Supporting the Blue Mountain Festival
