Wild Goose Festival

Who are we?

The Wild Goose is a transformational community grounded in faith-inspired social justice. Wherever we come together –  at our nationwide festival, smaller local and regional gatherings, or social spaces online – we learn and grow by co-creating art, music, story, theater, and spectacle, engaging in a wide variety of robust, respectful conversations with each other and with thought leaders and artists from other communities. We refuse to be enemies with anyone.

Who is invited?

We are welcoming and hospitable to people of all faiths – or no faith – who join us in seeking the common good. We fully affirm and celebrate people of every age, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual identity, education, bodily condition, religious affiliation, and economic background, particularly those who are most often marginalized.

What do we mean by faith-inspired social justice?

Most of us are progressive Christians. For us this means moving beyond belief to center ourselves in justice and compassion, to walk toward those in need and to solidarity with the marginalized and the oppressed, acknowledging our own privilege and actively working to use our power to alleviate suffering and achieve wholeness.

Why the name Wild Goose?

A wild goose is strong, beautiful and…utterly unpredictable. It often surprises us and disturbs our plans, leading us on wild and wonderful adventures. As such, it truly symbolizes the spirit we follow and the beloved community we seek to build.  After all, wild geese most often fly in flocks, sharing a common direction, honking their encouragement to each other and freely providing “lift” to one another simply by sticking together.
