Sisters Folk Festival was honored with the Organizational Achievement Award from the Folk Alliance Region-West (FAR-West). The Northwest chapter of Folk Alliance International made the award, which is part of the "Best of the West" category. The annual conference was held in Bellevue, Washington, October 5-8.

Sisters Folk Festival's creative director, Brad Tisdel, accepted the award. He attended with Americana Project alumni Benji Nagel and FAR-West board member and Sisters Folk Festival Ambassador Beth Wood.

Tisdel also presented singer-songwriter Jeffrey Martin, who sang on behalf of Sisters Folk Festival.

"To be recognized by FAR-West is an honor and a tribute to the long-term commitment of SFF to build community connections through music and arts education," said Tisdel. "From humble beginnings to a year-round cultural arts organization, we invest in our community, with compelling events and programming that help create inter-generational connections that support and empower our youth."

Sisters Folk Festival received the award for more than 20 years of service to support and enhance the cultural arts in the schools and community of Sisters, Oregon.
