We welcome you to the Starwood Festival; a celebration of diversity and alternatives in belief systems, lifestyles, and spirituality. Here you will never find a struggle to define which truth is the "real" truth, but rather a community of explorers fresh from their many journeys through realms both alien and familiar, flush with discovery, eager to share the wisdom they have found. Here are the children of the quest, their vision neither obscured by the forest nor are their minds diverted by the numbering trees, but peering upward and outward in wonder, beyond the night sky to the distant stars themselves.
The Starwood Festival features over 15 performances of music, drumming, dance and theatre. Its a multiversity featuring over 150 classes, workshops and ceremonies offered by teachers from many fields, disciplines, traditions and cultures. It's a family-friendly camping event with tenting and hiking, a pool and a hot-tub, a food court, co-op child care, a Kid Village and multimedia shows. Starwood is also a social event with costume parades, jam sessions, merchants, parties, all-night drumming and much more, including the blossom of our fest: our huge and infamous Bonfire!
The Starwood Stage is honored to welcome back bremiere Brazilian & World percussionist Cyro Baptista's Beat the Donkey. Cyro has appeared on five Grammy-award winning albums, and his workshops are simply amazing. We also welcome the dynamic Celtic rock group Lehto & Wright, the swamp-pop sound of Cats on Holiday, and the fantastic Pagan World-Beat group Telesma! New friends like Raquy and the Cavemen, Leo Starwind, Coyote Grace, and Rhythm Shamans combine with old favorites like Kenny Klein, Revelry, and the groups Incus and LochErie to name a few. And our speaker line-up is just as amazing!
