Since our humble beginnings over ten years ago, our festival has grown markedly in attendance and scope. 2015 was a banner year – our best attended, most artistically ambitious, and financially successful festival to date. We thank you for your part in helping to grow this very special benefit music event.
This said, we are saddened to report that we are not able to host a Far West Fest summer event for the year 2016.
Simply stated, it has been determined that we have outgrown our home at Love Field, in the town of Point Reyes. We are currently engaged in an active search for a new festival site. We welcome your engagement and encourage you to stay tuned for further developments.
Over the years, with the help of our dedicated donors, volunteers, and sponsors, the Far West Fest has contributed nearly $400,000 to West Marin non-profit organizations. The most difficult aspect of putting our benefit event on hold, involves knowing that our beneficiaries will be adversely affected. You can find a complete list of current Far West Fest beneficiaries and community partners HERE. Please consider becoming familiar with, and supporting their good work.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our annual party when we have secured a new home. In the meantime, please continue to support live music, which we are blessed to have in abundant supply and of the highest quality. Also, please consider taking with you the Far West Fest mantra of Good Times for the Greater Good. Helping one another can and should be a joyful experience. Always.
THANK YOU for your love and support. It has been an incredible run so far and we look forward to more good times ahead.
