Welcome to ConserFest

In the Spring of 2008, ConserFest formed to become a driving force of music and art to help conservation organizations raise awareness about local environmental issues. Each year, the ConserFest team of volunteers continues its efforts to promote environmental stewardship by bringing together the masses in a series of music celebration events to help protect great places, like Block Island, RI. ConserFest describes itself as "Music on a Mission," with the ultimate goal to educate about the environment and provide the right conscious tools so that participating audiences can become agents of change and embody the ConserFest core mantra, "Embrace Your Place."

ConserFest 2015- A Rockin’ Good Time!

ConserFest was AMAZING this summer!  More than a dozen bands and local musicians, four different local venues, totally incredible merchandise, a record number of volunteers and hundreds (dare we say thousands) of happy faces, dancing feet, and loud passionate voices for land conservation.  The ConserFest Team would like to extend their complete gratitude to each and everyone who has shown their support for the ConserFest Movement this year.  THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!  It was an unprecedented year for CF – we executed a successful Kickstarter campaign (exceeding our target and successfully raising over $6,700), obtained 501(c)3 Non-Profit status, and ran our best summer festival event to-date.  As we look to the future of environmental conservation on islands, our team plans to continue working even harder year-round to bring the best events and opportunities possible which share music and art with the masses in an effort to raise awareness and promote stewardship.

For those of you who couldn’t make it to our event this August and grab yourself some of the SWEET new 2015 merchandise, stay tuned for a new shopping cart feature on its way to this website!

Please stay in touch, join us on Facebook and remember to always, no matter where you are…Embrace Your Place!

Peace, Love and ConserFest

The CF Team

“Rooted in reggae rhythms and tropicália-inspired melodies, Jersey City-based Kiwi dynamically blends jazz flourishes and soulful grooves into a uniquely uplifting sound.

The band, which includes Alex Tea (vocals, guitar), Ramsey Norman (drums), Steve Capecci (bass), Mike Torres (percussion), Dave Stolarz (keys), Barami Waspe (tenor sax), and Rob Edwards (trombone), has been invited to share the stage with veteran reggae/ska acts including the Pietasters, John Brown’s Body and Groundation.” (Reverbnation.com)
