In its second year, in Tolland, Massachusetts, families can camp out from June 17-20 by the side of a lovely pond on a beautiful piece of land called Camp Timber Trails. “Tucked away in the majestic hills of the Berkshire Mountains just over the Connecticut border on nearly 500 acres of land with a picturesque lake serving as our waterfront. Situated at the foothills of the lucious Tolland State Forest and 1,065-acre Otis Reservoir- deserving of a hike before or after the festival with new friends.” If you are like me and crave connection to nature, this is the perfect way to spend the weekend.
For music heads, once again there is an amazing headliner. Last year it was one of my favorite bands, Antibalas, and this year its Balkan Beatbox which I saw live at Celebrate Brooklyn a few years back. They have an incredibly energetic live performance that mixes languages and instruments from all over the world.
Last year I participated in an all women’s sweat lodge and a bit of yoga. I met some truly incredible people, as the vibe is high, authentic, positive and totally inspiring. If you prefer a smaller festival where you aren’t overwhelmed with too many different sound stages and crazy folks on too many drugs, this is the festival for you.
“It is a live art show, a dance party, a place for ceremony, for permaculture, for sculptural works and circus arts. It is a place to care for the land and to eat organic food, and to be inspired and inspire our kids and our elders.”
