    Festival for Humanity is a cooperative effort of business, charities and artists both visual and musical to create an eventful holiday weekend that attracts fans to support the work of people dedicated to a greater good. With the partnerships of Woodfired Management and Mountain Creek-Crystal Springs Resort, this event was made possible to support and encourage charities from all over the U.S. to continue spreading their message.

    Woodfired Management will share 33% of all Festival for Humanity related merchandise directly with the Kristin Brooks Hope Center and has pledged 10% of all Net Ticket Sales to the charities of Humanity Village. These shared revenues should accumulate into the hundreds of thousands as the festival unfolds. There is no cover charge for a charity to set up an information booth at the festival and they are still accepting applications. To have your charity at the Festival for Humanity, please go here.

    Founder of the Festival For Humanity and Woodfired Management, Anders Thueson is an advocate for a number of causes and artists. He has over 30 years of management, design and production experience in several disciplines including television, print media, music, art and the culinary arts. Anders has been commended in numerous publications for his work with music, art and food most notably in Vail Colorado, Philadelphia, Washington DC and New York's Hudson Valley. As co-founder of the Hudson Valley Blues Society with the late NYC filmmaker Fred Jackson, he produced seven highly successful festivals featuring Blues luminaries Rod Piazza, the late Son Seals, Jimmy Vivino with John Sebastian, The Holmes Brothers, Mighty Sam McClain, Ann Rabson, Little Sammy Davis, the late Bill Perry, Doug MacLeod, Steve Guyger, Queen of Slide Ellen MacIlwaine, Paul Rishell & Annie Raines and many others.
