The work and play that happens during events is only the tip of the iceberg. Work happens throughout the year at Wisteria. Each year, we choose a few weekends where we invite volunteers to come on down and join us in helping to keep Wisteria going. Sometimes it’s cleaning and preparing for the festival season, and sometimes it’s major projects, but we always have great fun with it. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get to make friends and really get to know your fellow community members away from the frantic pace of festival. Admission is free if you give us five hours of work a day, and the rest of the time is yours. Evenings range from wild nights at Paw Paw, to quiet times listening to the woodland critters.

This year we’ll have a mix of projects large and small, from cleaning up and tidying to construction, utility work, painting, maintenance, forestry, and landscaping.

Love camping with your hard-working friends but hate breaking a sweat? You can skip the work entirely and just pay the open camping fee of $15 a night (13 and up, kids 3-12 $8). Pay at the office trailer or the cafe.

Our 2019 work weekends include:

Mar 22 – 24 – Spring Equinox 
Apr 19 – 21 – Easter
May 3 – 5 – Beltane
May 23 – 27 – Memorial Day / Awakening
Jun 14 – 17 – June / Pre-Solstice
Oct 25 – 27 – Closing

We’ll be adding more soon! Wood-busting weekends happen during the winter month and tend to happen on short notice, follow us on Facebook for more information

SOme of these weekends are during the colder months.  Make sure you’re comfortable with cold weather camping and bring plenty of food and warm clothing and gear. We hope to see you! For more information, contact info@wisteria.org.
