Take a stroll over to the non-profit booths in the Grandstand Meadow. Each of these organizations is committed to addressing compelling social, environmental and community needs. Stop by to meet some nice folks, learn something new, and find out how you can get involved!
Conscious Alliance supports communities in crisis. Conscious Alliance operates ongoing grassroots food collection and hunger awareness programs by organizing food drives at concerts and music events. Donate 20 non-perishable food items or a suggested monetary donation and receive a limited edition “Art That Feeds” HSMF poster created by JT Lucchesi. Perhaps you have some extra food at your campsite, or maybe you can take the shuttle into town to pick up some extra goods. Food donations are encouraged to be low-sodium and health-oriented products. Organic food donations are especially encouraged. Ramen noodles will NOT be accepted for the poster. Thank you for your continued support in feeding the hungry everywhere music plays!

At Love Hope Strength we save lives, one concert at a time by registering people to the National Marrow Donor database at concerts and music festivals nationwide. All it takes is a simple cheek swab and consent form to be added to the national registry. The most incredible aspect is that every time a match is found, we can pinpoint it back to the very concert it came from, thus knowing if your concert saved a life.
The Wharf Rats/Camp Traction are a group of friends and concert-goers who have chosen to live and attend live music events drug- and alcohol-free. Their primary purpose at shows is to be available as a resource to anyone who feels the need for support, strength and fellowship. They do not tell others how to live their lives or attend shows, but rather provide some positive traction in an otherwise slippery environment. To locate them, look for the Yellow Balloons on the map. wharfrat.org
Shabbat Tent is a place for festival goers to share food, song and good vibes as part of the general festival experience. Shabbat Tent celebrates the Sabbath on Friday evening at 7pm with a song circle, candle lighting and challah. We celebrate the end of the Sabbath on Saturday Night with a musical midnight Havdallah. On Saturday and Sunday mornings join us for moving meditation at 10am. Above all Shabbat Tent is a place to unplug, hydrate and connect with other festival goers and is always open to everyone! Peace and Shalom!
Plumas Arts keeps art and culture a vital part of everyday life in these Sierra Mountains with art workshops in schools, events, gallery art-walks and more. We make a real difference with projects that restore and revitalize historic buildings in Quincy including the Capitol Arts Gallery housing fine art to artisan crafts by regional artists, and Town Hall Theatre — the only movie house within a 70-mile radius that shows feature and art house films and provides a performing arts space. We also recently launched the Plumas Artisan Made branding, marketing and training program for local handmade goods. plumasartisanmade.com and plumasarts.org
