Our Mission

Treefort Music Festival believes in community and we made a commitment to be an environmentally responsible festival, for our community which includes our staff, festival participants, performers, sponsors, local businesses, Boise city and beyond.

We believe great festivals don’t have to come at such a high cost to our environment, so we strive each year to reduce our waste, reduce our non-renewable energy use and increase the opportunities for reuse.

Our mission includes you, the festival participant to be a part of Treefort in our effort to be green and to take the challenge and pledge to be green not only during Treefort but year round.

Our Team and Community

Like most great experiences, it’s the small things that add up to the Treefort phenomenon. And it’s especially true when you think of Treefort in terms of clean and green.

Take a look around. Take a moment to notice:

  • The musicians and entertainers stand on a clean Main Stage.
  • The sidewalks and roads stay free of trash throughout the festival.
  • Treefort decorations and signage are built with recycled materials.
  • Parked along the food trucks is a silent, solar-power trailer generating power to the Main Stage.
  • The cool Treefort merchandise always strives to help, not hurt, the environment.

Behind this amazing clean and green Treefort experience, is a volunteer community known as the Green Team. These incredible folks work every day of the festival keeping things clean and pointing the way to the recycling and composting bins. Long before you arrive each morning, they’re cleaning up and clearing the way so that your experience is fun, safe, and free of trash.

As the frog says, “It’s not easy being green.”

A huge Treefort thank you to our Green Sponsors, the Green Team volunteers, and you.

We are always looking for great people to bring into the Green Team family so if you are interested in being a volunteer on the Green Team, please contact us by sending an email to
