This year is going to be stellar. As Reed Taylor said, "You were either there, or you weren't." You don't want to miss this year as we bring the best music, art, and entertainment to the southern PA region.
Once again, we inhabit the beautiful Elicker's Grove at 511 Roth Church Rd., in Spring Grove, PA. (45 min from Harrisburg, 1 hour from Baltimore, 2 hours from Philly, 3 hours from NYC). This year, we will again have over 30 musical acts, a separate and even more elaborate electronic music stage, magicians, jugglers, fire pit, fire spinning, and hemp historian Les Stark. Additionally, we have poets, meditation and yoga seminars, new speakers, and even stand-up comedy! (SEE LINE UP BELOW!)
