ABOUT

A family friendly music, performance and healing arts festival in Blue Ridge, Georgia! Consider changing the world through art and love by immersing yourself in an intentional experience in nature full of spirit, art, yoga, meditation, healing, community and freedom!

Enjoy a beautiful lake to swim in, many acres to roam and camp in, creeks to play in, a produce garden to mosey around in!

Experience a movement class at the yoga deck, learn a new skill at the primitive skills tent, enjoy a sound bath at the sound tent, receive a session with a wellness practitioner.

Get your groove on at the main stage, shop for local handmade goods and arts, enjoy a snack at the snack bar, share songs and drumming by the bonfire each night. This is a weekend packed full of opportunities for connection and heart opening experiences.

FOOD
