Community | Roundhouse

We're pleased with our Starwood Village and Community that have grown throughout the years, and we hope you are too! We engage all guests on some level or another - from the little ones and the not-so-little ones to teens and the young at heart to adults and those in their twilight years. Magicians, Druids, Drummers, Hippies, Freemasons, Dancers, Witches, Yeti, Technopagans, and the Free at Heart all find something to do and love at Starwood.

Folks are friendly here, so keep an open mind and an open heart. We invite you to attend various Rituals, stroll the Starwood Village and chat, eat, shop, or refresh yourself with the sight of the young people at play.

In order for our little Utopian Brigadoon to work, we need to be mindful of a few things:

  1. Rules. Sorry folks, this little Temporary Autonomous Zone does have rules designed to enhance your experience. Please be aware of them and follow them.
  2. The nightly Roundhouse and other fires are an integral part of many peoples Starwood experience. In order for these community gathering places to exist, we need to show respect for these fires and those that host them.
  3. Trash and recyclables can really accumulate. We're begging everyone to Pack Green and reduce your packaging and consumable waste, recycle as best you can and take away everything else.
  4. We ask everyone to volunteer 2 hours of their time to help set up, maintain or take down the festival. It'll be over before you know it.
  5. Please be smart about your belongings, know your neighbors, wear your ID, and report any suspicious activity to the Safety Watch. Your co-attendees are relying on you. Embrace your rights and your responsibilities.
