We produce amazing festivals and events in Weber County and greater Wasatch Front region, and kids 16 and younger always get to participate free of charge in everything we do!
To provide and promote community with live traditional and contemporary Americana music experiences. Through these performances we aim to attract visitors from outside the region and help develop Weber County and Ogden as a destination for first class arts events and recreation. We strive to raise awareness of the many benefits of exposure to music and traditional instrument playing by providing music education opportunities with a focus on youth audiences.
Why It Matters
Exposure to music at a young age can change one's life. There is significant research to support that kids who play musical instruments do better in all walks of life. Children and youth 16 and younger get in FREE to all OFOAM events, and OFOAM keeps ticket costs comparatively low for a high quality 3-day family-friendly festival experience with camping on site, and outstanding line-ups that appeal to diverse, all-ages audiences.
OFOAM is an all-volunteer 501C3 non-profit organization that contributes significantly to the vibrant arts and recreation community in Ogden. Over 60% of our operating budget is for artist fees. Far from being observers, attendees become active participants in the OFOAM Festival Community through kids activities, vending, sponsorship, volunteerism, and campground jams. Beyond the music, people also fall in love with Weber County's stunning natural beauty and recreational opportunities. OFOAM festivals become annual traditions for families and friends.
