To help you get oriented here are our 2018 Schedules: G&A Schedule Saturday and G&A Schedule Sunday, as well as the Field Map. We encourage you to bring the these with you to the festival. A printed program will also be available as you enter the festival. Lists of exhibitors with their booths may be found both in the printed program and also on the whiteboards/easels located around the field.
If you did not attend the festival in the past few years please note that changes were made to the layout. The Lower Entrance and Volunteer Sign-In booth have moved to the Chestnut Hill Road end of the festival field, just above the North Parking entrance and the shuttle stop. The Kids Activity Tent, including Climate Action activities, is located up the hill from the Main Stage and between the upper Food Court and the Spoken Word Stage. The Portal to the Future is located in the lower North field.
Shuttle users — we love you! Don’t want to wait? Come early and stay late. Our busiest hours with heaviest traffic and longer shuttle waits are between 11-3. Shuttles run from 9:55 to 4:45. Volunteers should check with their volunteer coordinator to find out where to park and when to get the shuttle.
Many vendors will be offering demonstrations in their booths throughout the Main Field and North End. And there is a new Slow Cloth Demo Tent where you can see plant and animal fibers transformed into clothing and other useful goods. Throughout each day, from 11 AM – 4 PM, the Skeleton Crew Theater will be roving the field. Hay rides will take place on Gidney Road. And in the Kids Activity Tent everyone can craft their wish for the environment and hang it on the Globe. Other ongoing activities will include Face Painting and Hooping with Alotta Hoopla. N.E. Wilderness Bushcraft will demonstrate firecraft and hand-made camp furniture. At 3 PM on Sunday there will be a parade, a moment of silence and community, and cake for all attendees as part of the 20th anniversary celebration.
