Mission Statement

Paperfest is a fun, community driven festival featuring fun for all ages through music, food, sports, family fun and much more! Proceeds from Paperfest are donated back into the community through various charitable organizations in the Fox Valley.

Paperfest strengthens our community by utilizing the expertise and generosity of volunteers, sponsors, and donors.

The Paperfest planning committee is comprised of multiple subcommittees all working together to make sure this event runs smoothly.

Community Roots

Paperfest is all about community! From the volunteers to the generous partners, the community comes together to have a great time and the proceeds are donated to local charitable organizations.

Over the past 30+ years, Paperfest has donated over $1,000,000 to more than 75 nonprofit, civic, and service organizations. Volunteer organizations are paid out an hourly rate for their services at Paperfest. This means the more the organization works, the more money they make.

Our goal is to provide a fun, family friendly, community festival as well as donate over $100,000 for the local non-profit organizations.
