About this event

  • 6 days 8 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

Joyous, rowdy, and life changing, Starwood is a seven-day celebration of diversity, alternatives in lifestyle, spirituality, belief systems, and is distinguished by its warm and welcoming community spirit.

Here you will find a community of explorers fresh from many journeys through realms both alien and familiar. Flush with discovery, they're eager to share the wisdom they have found. Here are the children of the quest, their vision unobscured by the veil of constructed reality, peering upward and outward in wonder, beyond the night sky to the distant stars.

The Midwest's oldest event of its kind, Starwood offers:

  • A week long line-up of classes, workshops, and ceremonies offered by prominent teachers in their diverse fields.
  • A melting pot of live performances by world-renowned and local artists, drum and dance circles, music jams, and spontaneous free range creative exploration.
  • Our infamous Saturday night Bonfire, and so much more...
  • Starwood is a clothing-optional event; from skyclad to male sarongs and pageantry, dress as you will, but observe the rules of informed, enthusiastic consent!


Some Notes about the Campground/Event

  • camp/attend at your own risk... (while care is given to promote safety on the campground, we cannot guarantee against unfavorable circumstances)
  • while there is (limited) DISABILITY CAMPING with access to minor-draw power (such as breathing equipment, wheelchair charging but not AC), there is no guaranteed access should power failure occur and the campground is semi-primitive (ungraded gravel roads, accessible hot showers, and two accessible porta-potties located near disability camping and the showers). Dedicated caregivers may be brought in at a discounted rate; please contact us for details more than a month ahead of time so that we can make possible arrangements
  • NO PETS (only qualified service animals; NO emotional-support animals) -- extreme heat can be cruel to animals
  • RV/Bus Camping passes will be limited this year, separated from car and pop-up passes; there is NO direct water-hookup nor waste-water dumping facilities (please be prepared to haul graywater out); there is NO electrical hookup (the event is too large to provide electricity beyond limited disability-camping and event needs); also, brake-assist and extra cylinder power is necessary for larger RVs, which may not fit down the steep, dirt-road incline into the property. Pop-ups/minivans have more options for camp space. No woods camping available for camper vehicles; fire roads are NOT to be blocked.
  • Parking Lot is FREE for commuter vehicles; if you must camp in your vehicle, it MUST REMAIN PARKED/CAMPED IN PLACE for the remainder of the event for the safety of other attendees (and you need to pay for & display a Parking Pass to keep it there; those needing disability parking passes should contact us at least a month ahead of time). Shuttles are available for travel within the campground.
