Future Arts Foundation

Winter Folk Music and Photography Showcase is put on by Future Arts Foundation (FAF).  FAF is a non-profit with a mission to “host concerts with a purpose.”  Proceeds from FAF events provide Colorado schools with instruments and allow them to host free youth arts workshops to the children of Colorado teachers, first responders, and military members.

Each day of this year’s Winter Folk event will provide an instrument to a Colorado school music program.  That’s 12 instruments!

Photography Showcase

Each day of Winter Folk will feature a photography expo on the bottom floor of the St. Vrain, with the music going on upstairs. 

There will be a dozen Colorado photographers showcased throughout the month, featuring a variety of styles and topics. Each photographer will receive 100% of their sales, so your purchases will directly support local artists.
