Description

Over the course of three late summer days, the Clear Creek Festival draws together members of the surrounding rural and urban communities along with guests from throughout the south and across the country with the intention of building community, promoting healing & transformation, and inspiring all of us to live more sustainably -- in harmony with nature and with one another.

The Festival offers a beautiful cultural experience that includes performative and visual arts, healing and ceremony opportunities, educational workshops and demonstrations, fresh local food and community meals, gathering and camping areas for the whole community and others reserved as special spaces for young people, teens, families and women. People drink and wash from the cool mountain spring water that flows right out of the hillside and enjoy a weekend in the woods off-thegrid where their cell phones don’t work and the only electricity available is generated by the sun and captured to power the stage and night lights.

The Clear Creek Festival provides us with an opportunity to envision and enact what an alternative society can be -- a loving, liberated society that actively challenges and overcomes the injustices we face in our region and throughout America. We believe that the energy and spirit we create together at Clear Creek allows us all to come home refreshed and rejuvenated, inspired and empowered in a time when our land, our people, our world and ourselves need it more than ever. To find out more and check out images, performance and workshop schedules from past Clear Creek Festivals, visit us at www.clearcreekfest.org . And join us next time!
