Welcome To Our

Transformational Village Festival Calendar

Transformational Village Festival Calendar

showing events in the North & Central American regions.

TO SEE MORE EVENT CALENDARS – Click the Menu Above. Please send me your dates, and any events I am missing.

UPDATED June 2022 ..…. I’m attempting to update the calendar. It’s still a wild card. Fests are selling tickets, those who are boldly planning to gather, but it’s still largely unknown. Note that I have included a lot of festivals that are not settled yet – I’d rather you be able to check in on them. Next year I’ll post only those that have dates. If you want to find out more, please click through to their websites to see the latest info. Find events that have passed at the end.

SUPPORT YOUR FAVE EVENTS ….. As a festival lover, note that these festivals are fragile financially, many won’t make it through this storm. We have lost many beloved events and will continue to lose more….. you, their loyal community, can help them make it through this. Reach out to them, talk to them, hold fundraisers or ask how you can help – As community gatherings, it is only community that will keep them afloat through these times.

WANT TO PARTICIPATE? Festival Fire does not book music, artists or anything else, we’re just a calendar!

Most festivals open applications 6-8 months in advance of the event. If you are interested in applying as a performer, volunteer, crew, media, workshop presenter or something else, click through to the festival’s website and look for their applications there.

STILL DREAM FESTIVALYes, It’s On!

June 23 – 27, 2022 Wilseyville, California
Stilldream was formed in June of 2000, by a group of like minded individuals from the Sierra Foothills, and Sacramento, interested in the preservation of events of an earthy, intimate nature, which were becoming more and more scarce at the time. A common love for music, community, nature, culture, and consciousness has encouraged us all to unite and give back to the community that has always given us love, inspiration and provided growth. In its 14 years, Stilldream has gone from us all trying to see where we could take it, to realizing that Stilldream itself has indeed been taking us all on a ride that we could have never imagined.

PROJECT EARTH – STATUS UNKNOWN

June Geneva, Minnesota
Project Earth has a different mission: To slow it all down and open space for the family to discover more of each other. We have been told by you, that the more intimate setting in the forest is just the right medicine for the Tribal convergence. Its our belief that our community has a lot of powerful connections to make and soul contracts to fulfill. The Planet and all life on her need conscious people now more than ever! We are the ones we have been waiting for… and the time has come for us to rise up. Trust me, no one loves to get their party on more than we do (it’s an Irish thing) however… it’s our hope to be more sober and clear at this crucial family gathering. No doubt we will be celebrating together and more than a few brews will be shared …let’s just ask ourselves to commit to less and trust that it will be so much MORE !!! Respect and Love… see you on the playground soon! xoxo

PLants Enchant – Yes, It’s On!

July 29 – Aug 1, 2022 Salem Oregon
In devotion to song, ceremony & heart felt communion with the healing plant Kin-dom. This gathering is intended to develop and strengthen ‘medicine culture’ thru the healing arts of holistic education, song-sharing, life-as-ceremony, and supportive community. It recognizes ‘medicines’ as the force of nature that cures dis-ease, that takes us from being sick to being free. This event aligns more with deep herbalism, which cultivates a relationship thru plants to the healing presence of Nature, a pro-active approach to health, and less with the ‘shallow herbalism’ of ‘take the tincture and make the symptoms go away’, a greener version of the pharmaceutical model. It acknowledges plants as elders in the society of nature as it exists on planet earth, and therefore teachers to the adolescent human species. As such, they can keep us aligned with the healthy functioning of the planetary metabolism, mirrored in our own inner and social ecologies. Plants enChant is intended to honor and give space for their wisdom, to activate our abilities to receive it, and put this guidance into practice.

BELOVED FESTIVAL Our dearest friends, Beloved, is NO LONGER!
I’m leaving this up to let you all know…..

August Tidewater, Oregon
Beloved WAS a model for a culture that understands the depth of our connection with each other, to the planet, and to our souls. We respectfully present sacred music from diverse global traditions; and see conscious dance music as fitting into the broader context of sacred and healing music. We also host interactive art installations, live painting, local organic cuisine, and workshops on yoga, healing, relationships, social and environmental justice, and the music and wisdom of ancient cultures. Our goal is to dissolve the boundaries that isolate us through music, dance, and play. We demand of ourselves that we deepen our own connection to, and respect for, the earth and that we educate and inspire participants to do the same.

FOREST DANCE – Status Unknown

August Camp Timber Trails, Massachusetts
Forest Dance is a profound sacred ceremonial gathering where we dance and experiment with creativity in service, around a sacred fire, for three full nights until dawn. This model is designed to cultivate our energy together. It is designed to be in service together and to create an atmosphere for deep listening, where the musicians, which can include all of us, are swept up together in the energy that moves through the circle. Through the timeless action of circling the fire, in part from the pulsing of moving closer to music and away, and closer and away, there is a breaking away of the armor. The pieces we sensitive people need to cope day to day, come down and we begin to expand and open.

BURNING MAN – Yes, It’s On!

August 28 -Sept 6, 2022 Black Rock City, Nevada
Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather to create Black Rock City in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having created unbelievable artistic experiences, and having left no trace whatsoever.

Our intention is to generate society that connects each individual to his or her creative powers, to participation in community, to the larger realm of civic life, and to the even greater world of nature that exists beyond society. We believe that the experience of Burning Man can produce positive spiritual change in the world. The touchstone of value in our culture will always be immediacy: experience before theory, moral relationships before politics, survival before services, roles before jobs, embodied ritual before symbolism, work before vested interest, participant support before sponsorship. And we will always burn the Man.

This isn’t just another meaningless party. This is about finding a new kind of freedom. A point where you reach your mental breaking point and come to your specific realization that is meaningful at exactly the right place, exactly the right time, and exactly the stage of life that you are currently in. Desert Hearts is about coming together in love, collectively, individually, and supernaturally. This is about the healing of land and souls. This is about touching heaven, even if only just for a few days. What we are doing is real. It’s more real and more true than anything we’ve ever been privileged enough to be a part of. It’s time to wake up, into a dream world where real life is mystically blissful–to a place where we won’t ever want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than our wildest dreams.
