The 4thFest is organized by 600+ volunteers, working year round, spending approximately 13000 man-hours planning, developing and executing the event. These volunteers – your friends, colleagues and neighbors in Central Pennsylvania – make up the Board of Directors, Advisory Board, and the many committees that organize the event.
