Is SMF Eco-Friendly

The Sourland Mountain Festival has partnered with our local Green Team to move towards making the festival a Zero Waste Event, the goal of which is to eliminate waste by reducing packaging, reusing, recycling and composting as much as possible. We are strongly-encouraging our food vendors to use compostable cups and plates.  Vendors may not sell Single use plastic, including water/beverage bottles.  Guests and Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable water/beverage bottles.  Free water will be located at stations on festival grounds.
Be sure to stop by and visit the Festival's Green Initiative Tents!

Is SMF family friendly?
Absolutely!  We encourage you to bring everyone from your family reunion, birthday, and graduation party - the more the merrier!   Sorry no pet friends please, service dogs only.
