Event description


*Photo collage credit: Jon Fox & Brett Jackson*

HAVEN is a weekend campout offering our chosen family a mellow kid-friendly retreat, a place to relax and reconnect while enjoying some of the same great music and vibes as many of the festivals we usually attend.

At HAVEN, many of our favorite DJs will spin for us, but you won’t need earplugs to enjoy the music up close. Kids of all ages are welcome, if accompanied by their parent/guardian. The majority of the planned activities will be kid-friendly, and there will be a reserved family camping area with nightly quiet hours. Children get free or discounted admission based on their age, but must ALL be registered with a corresponding ticket to attend.

Alcohol, etc., aren’t prohibited, but this isn’t a lose-your-mind rager—there are festivals for that! All attendees are respectfully requested not to lose their $#i!. Please note that this is not a publicly advertised event. We encourage you to share it with and invite your friends, but you are then responsible for making sure they are on board with the community vibe, intent, and responsibilities.

*~* Updates for 2018 *~*

Single Day Passes. If you can only join for one day, we now offer single day admission for Saturday only.

More Activities! We've heard from many that everyone would enjoy more activities together, and for all ages. In addition to our traditional s'mores, pancake breakfast, and coffee bar, we plan to offer even more games, workshops, and general awesomeness. We could still use your help, whether through donations or volunteering to lead an activity, so please jump in! Activity schedules will be posted as we build them.

Everyone Volunteers! In the spirit of a community-created event, we're asking everyone to commit to one or two hours of volunteering. Areas of service include greeter shifts, setup, leading an activity, rangering, providing first-aid, mooping/clean-up, tear-down, etc. A sign-up sheet will be posted ahead of time, but the Greeters will also have remaining volunteer shifts for you to choose from upon arrival. Snag a shift early for the most options!

Adult-Only Music Lounge. Jae Cush's after-hours gazebo-lounge was a hit last year and will be back again Friday and Saturday night after the main stage winds down. We plan to help make it even bigger and better this year. Offer to help us add to its awesomeness!

More Shade. We expect it to be warm again this year, so we will be calling for and erecting more shaded areas around the pool, patio, and lawn. We are also hoping to create a literal Chill Dome as a retreat if the temps climb too high for little ones' comfort. Please let us know if you have shade equipment to share.
