HOME|| Overview || Presenters || Resort || Register || Specs || Ask

Winterstar is a village of cozy cottages, with nightly theme parties offering drumming and dance, bardic sing-a-longs, rock-n-roll, pyrates and more exotic pleasures. Evenings feature entertainment and spiritual transformation, a perfect blend of the aesthetic and sacred. Days are spent enjoying the luxurious amenities of the Atwood Lake Resort Lodge, shopping in our merchant room, exploring biofeedback & electronic meditation aids and participating in rituals and experiential classes.

Registration for the WinterStar Symposium opens Thursday at 6PM in the Hospitality House (Cottage 17), followed at 7:30 with the Welcome Wagon Pot-Luck Party, where we’ll be drummin’ and jammin’ late into the night and greeting the late-night arrivals. A great opportunity to make connections early in the program!

Merchant set-up begins at noon on Friday, and the Opening Circle is held at 1:30, with classes running from 2:00 - 6:15.  After the dinner break, the evening program will begin at 8pm. Cabin parties will follow late into the night.

Classes continue Saturday from 9:30 AM until the 6:15 Dinner break. The evening program begins at 8:30 and is followed by cabin parties.

Sunday Classes begin at 9:30, then we'll break for lunch (and Cabin checkout), attend the Closing Circle at 1:30, and take our last opportunity to visit our merchants and for warm farewells.


There’s nothing quite like the late-night activities at WinterStar, the perfect indoor festival to break up those long winter months. We’ve set up cottages to host parties of different styles on Friday and Saturday nights. The cabin parties will include:

 The Folk-Rock Cabin

The SpaceJam Cabin - Dedicated to Chas - With Bob Mozik, Michelle George, and Ron Slabe

The Drum-Jam Cabin with Dennis & Linda Murphy and drummers from the WinterStar community.
