Every year the Sourland Mountain Festival brings the communities of the Central New Jersey region together and presents the best in musical talent, local food and drink, family fun - and a spectacular view.

The Sourland Mountain Festival is hosted by the Sourland Conservancy, a non-profit organization that works to protect the Sourland Mountain region.  The 90-square-mile Sourland region is home to the largest contiguous forest in Central New Jersey. The sparsely populated area includes parts of Somerset, Hunterdon and Mercer counties, and encompasses a complex ecosystem of forest, wetlands and grasslands.

Tom Marshall, longtime lyricist for the jam band Phish and who now lives in the Sourland Mountain region said, "I hike in the Sourland Mountain Preserve all the time. Any charity that helps a cool cause like this, we'd love to take part.”

Bring all your friends and family, lawn chairs and blankets and plan to sit back and enjoy the party with a powerful lineup of the region’s most exciting musicians.  Festival-goers get seven hours of Sourland Mountain music, food, craft beer, vendors, family activities, history, critters and wildlife education. 

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! 

Enjoy yourself and help save the Sourlands at the same time!!!
