Sisters Folk Festival leaves $1.2 million dollars in the local economy!
In 2014, SFF, with support from The Ford Family Foundation and the Deschutes County Commissioners, commissioned Dean Runyan Associates to assess the economic impact of our September festival on the local economy. The results are astounding and the benefits to our small, rural community are significant.
