We are nestled in the foothills of the White Mountains, on the banks of the Ossipee River, and less than one hour from the Atlantic Ocean (and the hip city of Portland!) We have something for everyone: children’s activities, farm to table food, yoga, craft beer, swimming, camping, and music worth listening to closely. We are also one of the most family friendly events in the United States–we’re the only 4 day festival to allow 17 and under in free, PLUS free kids programs all day!
