Folly Fest is proud to be the “Greenest Festival on the East Coast”. From powering stages through renewable energy, a 5-bin waste management system, mandates on local purchasing, compostable food containers, and green camping incentives, Folly Fest continues to become better stewards for the environment. Through the Folly Forests initiative, help from The Environmental Trust Fund and a portion of our ticket sales, we’ve planted small forests across New Brunswick! The Green Team keeps the grounds neat and tidy, encouraging and educating festival goers on the best ways to keep their festival experience enviromentally friendly! Folly Fest proves that thousands of people can leave a place better than when they came, and have fun doing it!

THE FIVE BIN SYSTEM

We know we are a bit cray to tackle it ALL the way down to compost, but we do, and it’s awesome.

SOME TRICKS TO HELP!!

  • Bring a reusable water bottle!!! We do NOT sell bottled water at Folly Fest, so come prepared!
  • Bring a reusable COFFEE MUG!!! (this you will not regret I promise)
  • CARPOOL!
  • Don’t buy Styrofoam coolers!! They break, they can’t be recycled, useless.
