The Future Arts Foundation is a federally recognized nonprofit organization. Our mission is to host concerts that not only provide world class entertainment, but benefit Colorado youth arts programs.


How do we accomplish this goal? We host the annual Bluebird Music Festival, a concert series, and other cultural events. Proceeds from these events provide Colorado schools with instruments and allow us to host free youth arts workshops to the children of Colorado teachers and first responders.

Bluebird Music Festival

The Bluebird Music Festival is a day long series of performances at the historic Macky Auditorium in Boulder.  This year it features Wesley Schultz (The Lumineers), Jade Bird, Josh Ritter, Colin Meloy (The Decemberists), Adia Victoria, and Dave Simonett (Trampled by Turtles)! The day is broken up into a main evening event and a family friendly afternoon event. Past performers include Jim James, Gregory Alan Isakov, Neyla Pekarek, The Tallest Man on Earth, Langhorne Slim, Josiah Johnson of The Head & The Heart, Paper Bird, members of Yonder Mountain String Band, Elephant Revival, and many more.

Strings & Stories

Our Strings & Stories concert series takes place monthly at the Firehouse Art Center in Longmont, Colorado and at Boulder's Bluebird Music Festival. The series features intimate, acoustic performances accompanied with tales of the songwriting process and a Q & A session with the audience. Proceeds from each concert will supply a local school with a needed instrument.

Youth Arts Workshops

FAF offers free arts workshops to the children of public school teachers and first-responders. Please visit the Youth Arts Workshop page for information and registration details.
