Arrive on time please, between 3 and 5 pm on Wednesday Aug 28th.

Note: please make sure that you arrive in plenty of time to set up your tent and register so you are ready in time.

We understand if some people need to arrive later on Wednesday evening due to work commitments, however we really encourage as many people as can make it from the beginning of the festival.

This is unlike music and other festivals, we are taking you on a personal journey where you are encouraged to meet and connect with others and this will happen easier and deeper if you can be there from the start.

The festival finishes with a closing ceremony by 4 in the afternoon on the last day, and participants must leave the festival grounds by 6 pm that day.

Note that Monday Sept 2nd is Labor Day.



Eating together is part of the festival. Festival tickets are fully inclusive of 3 meals a day.
Your Full ticket starts with dinner on the 28th, and finishes with lunch on the 1st.

All our meals are mostly organic and vegetarian, and prepared with love – if you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in the additional information on the registration form.

Special Health/Dietary Needs Preferences: We will make every effort to accommodate vegan, dairy-free, wheat-free, and raw food needs. However, If you have special dietary needs please bring your own snacks and supplemental foods, as we are not able to provide everything for everyone's special needs.
