Community is at the heart of Treefort. As a festival built by the community, for the community, we are honored and excited to partner with a variety of community organizations each year. With Treefort for Good, our attendees, artists, and staff connect with local and state organizations throughout the week, creating pathways to advocacy and strengthened community connections.
Here are a few events and organizations to look forward to seeing at Treefort:
EXPLORE NONPROFIT ROW
You’ll find nonprofit organizations represented throughout the festival, but you’ll find most of them in the Treefort for Good section outside of Main Stage in Julia Davis park. Stop by a booth, learn a little more about their mission and get connected with the people & groups moving Idaho forward. Here’s some fun things to discover on nonprofit row!
- Dive into Idaho Gives – a program from the Idaho Nonprofit Center
- Traditional African dance lessons + coffee tasting with Global Lounge
- Share what home means to you with Jesse Tree of Idaho
- Learn about climate change impact on tribal communities with Upper Snake River Tribes foundation
