Wild Goose Festival

SPIRIT | JUSTICE | MUSIC | ART

The Wild Goose Festival is an art, music, and story-driven transformational experience grounded in faith-inspired social justice.

 
We all live by stories, whether we realize it or not…our personal stories of things we’ve done, or that were done to us, corners we turned, chances we took, mistakes we made.

We also live by the stories that permeate our culture, framing stories like big glass windows – we see the world through them, but sometimes barely even know they are there.

At Wild Goose, we’ve always been about making space for courageous, imaginative, and participative social justice work, unleashed creative expression, disruptive spiritual practice, as well as astonishing and inspiring music and art.

WHERE IS THE WILD GOOSE FESTIVAL?
The festival will be held in Hot Springs, NC. Hot Springs, near Asheville, is nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina and along the banks of the beautiful French Broad River. It serves as an intersection along the historic Appalachian Trail and is part of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

Located across the road from the Hot Springs Resort & Spa is the Hot Springs Campground, where Wild Goose Festival will be held in 2016. The site features ample sites for tent camping, as well as  full RV hookups. On site comfort stations feature showers and clean bathrooms. Numerous rental cabins/cottages are also available in the town, many within walking distance of the campground.
Come be brave and beautiful with Mushpa + Mensa.
