The Events

For over 25 years Wisteria has been home to many different events and communities. We are an alternative and unique space for people to truly be themselves. If you have never been to an event before we welcome you with open arms! For the rest of you, welcome home! 

Wisteria Event Site and Campground hosts two major festivals a year, and hosts and facilitates several other events organized by outside groups. Though our festivals are currently limited due to COVID-19 guidelines, below is a partial list of events we plan to hold featuring light programming, fires, workshops, and community. More to come!

Autumn Fires honors harvest, Halloween, and Hallows. Hardy campers celebrate seasonal color with music, feasting, workshops,  and campfires. This seasonal event features a community-wide pottery workshop and all-night pottery pit-firing with drumming and dancing.  Autumn Fires is a kid’s paradise, with cooperative play, crafts, pumpkin carving, and other seasonal activities. Our ancestors will be honored with ceremony, remembrance, and an Ancestor Shrine.

The Night of the Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

We traditionally host a small community gathering during the night of Winter Solstice. If you’re an experienced cold weather camper and the weather is cooperating, feel free to come join us. Bring your cold weather gear (expect rain, snow, and cold), instruments, food to share for the pot-luck, and a decent vehicle. Bring water because there are NO SERVICES other than portable toilets! For more information follow us on Facebook.
