Welcome To Wisteria

Nature and Community- Untamed, Unashamed, Wild and Free

A Natural World

In this fast paced, constantly racing world, Wisteria is a place where you can escape. For over 25 years of camping, festivals and events, Wisteria has been a world all its own. A place where people can be free, safe, secure and valued. We are a strong and loving community always looking to open our arms to you. Come join us and see what magical place has touched thousands of peoples lives. A place where you are free to be you in the safety and comfort of nature and community. Wisteria was founded as a nature preserve with over 620 acres to explore. Now it is a place to express yourself and join our home hidden in the woods

A Note About 2022 Festival Season:

Hello everyone!

With the holidays behind and winter settling in, we here at Wisteria are starting to prepare for the upcoming season! We know you’re all just as excited as we are for spring and summer to return and festivals to begin again and we are so very excited to welcome you home again. However, we are undergoing a few administrative adjustments for the Wisteria run events such as Solstice and Autumn Fires and we may be using a different booking method. With that said, we are going to block out those dates on Campspot to avoid any confusion as we sort out some of the logistics. We are also not taking registration for events but will be very soon. We’ll let you know as soon as everything is ready.

Thank you so much for your patience and we hope you’re having a wonderful year so far!

Events

Wisteria is home to many unique festivals and events. Come experience festivities that are unlike any other. No year is the same as we offer different events for the season. Look into what things are happening and see if you would like to be a part of the magic happening this year. You can also reach out to us to book your own event. Let us grow and learn together. No event is the same, take a look at what’s happening now.

A Home

Wisteria is a safe and loving place with a generous and kind community. It offers a land where people can be free and accepted for who they are. Find like-minded people and explore what Wisteria is and what it can be to you. 

People escape to the beautiful rolling hills and open air of Wisteria to get away and get in touch with nature and self. Come experience an event or just come to get away and camp for a little. The more you come the more you feel like you are finally coming home.
