Do I have to camp or is there lodging nearby?
There is no lodging in the immediate vicinity of the gathering, so this is a camping-only event.
If youʻre not into the camping experience, there are hotels near the gathering in the closest cities.
What should I bring for camping?
This is a camping event so bring all your own camping gear and accessories. If you come with an RV or Live-In Vehicle, there will be a designated area for you to park and stay. There is fresh drinking water, clean showers, a lake for cooling off and plenty of porta-potties.
Is there water/food available or should I bring my own?
Bring your own reusable water bottle (or there may be one for sale! ). There will be great food and beverage vendors including raw foods/vegetarian/vegan/ vendors with amazing healthy deserts!
How does parking work?
Parking is in designated areas for day passes, overnight camping and RV’s. A nominal parking fee will be requested for each vehicle to “green the event” which will be greatly discounted or free for those who carpool (3 or more people).
Greening the Gathering & ZERO WASTE
At previous events we have recycled our waste, encouraged water bottle usage instead of plastic, and so forth. This year we are endeavoring to do much more to make our event as close to a ZERO WASTE event as possible. We encourage you to bring your own water bottle, even reusable plates and utensils if at all possible. We are planning to reduce our footprint this year and be a living example of how we can walk more lightly on the Earth.
What NOT to bring!
There is no selling of beer or alcohol at the gathering and we highly discourage its use. If you have a beer or glass of wine in your tent and are not “walking around with a beer in your hand,” you could probably drink unnoticed, however we highly discourage any intoxication and drunkenness. Our event is endeavoring to encourage us all to find lifestyle choices leading to a joyful life without the need of intoxicants to feel ‘high’ but rather to get ‘high on life’ with yoga, music, breathing, ecstatic dance and so forth.
We discourage the use of drugs of any kind except those prescribed by a doctor.
There are no dogs or animals permitted at the event.
A chance to honor & come through
Another important mission again this year is that we are endeavoring to raise as much funds as possible to be able to take care of those who were not fully paid at the summer 2010 Mystic Garden Party event. That year the county had given us the go ahead to produce that year’s festival event at a certain site in which a smaller festival had been produced for 7 years in a row. Then, we were shocked that just days before the event we were told they changed their minds and we could not have our event there and we’d be arrested if we continued organizing for our festival/gathering on that site. Thus a huge loss happened in large part because of that. We almost challenged the county based on our belief that we have a right to freedom of assembly. Regardless, it has been challenging just to keep the festival from canceling as other festival events have this year which would give little to no hope in taking care of any debt at all. However, we have managed to stay afloat, make some payments toward that debt each year, and do look forward to continuing that progress with larger payments to be able to fully honor all past agreements regardless of those circumstances. All new owners have agreed that a percentage of ticket sales and profits from the event will go toward paying debt. Together we can raise abundance, take care of everyone, become sustainable, and continue to offer a transformational festival gathering experience that attendees have found inspiring and empowering.
