Membership Pays! Join SFMS!

The financial support of our members enables SFMS to present high-quality events at modest prices. In return, our members enjoy admission discounts, listing in our online Resource Guide (if desired), and many other benefits.

Your Name In Lights!

Sponsor an event with a donation of $200 or higher, and you'll receive preferred seating, special recognition, and an opportunity to meet the performer.

Sponsorships can be made by individuals or organizations.


Learn how you can help make it happen. Without our volunteers, stages would be silent, chairs folded up, dance floors dark and quiet. Even a few minutes helping out at an event is a great way to support SFMS.

Want to do more? Apply to serve on our Board of Directors or join one of our committees.

Coming to our Folk Festival the last weekend in July? Volunteer to earn free admission the day of your shift!
