Jul 19 all-day

Registration is open, with discounted early-bird pricing now through June 1. https://www.tickettailor.com/events/whipporwillofkentuckylimited/235063

Jump in and join us for the 9th annual Whippoorwill Festival – Skills for Earth-Friendly Living!! This year’s fest is July 19-21, 2019, and will be held in the gorgeous Lago Linda Hideaway, near the Red River Gorge in Beattyville, Kentucky. Lago Linda has basic tent camping and improved campsites with water and electric hookups. Amenities include flush toilets, hot showers, plenty of parking, gravel roads, hiking trails, and a beautiful lake.

Are you interested in building healthier and more resilient communities? The skills and connections to do so? Whippoorwill was created in response to a need for a supportive, family friendly learning environment to help build the world we wish to see. We share traditional and modern living skills in a joyful, healthful and family friendly atmosphere. Join us as we celebrate Appalachian Heritage and new traditions while helping to build community resilience needed to face modern concerns.

The event is family friendly, and there are workshops and activities for children as well as adults. There are morning activities and evening entertainment.

Our workshops span topics such as: gardening, permaculture, natural building, tracking, fire making, stargazing, foraging, pottery, woodworking, appropriate technology, cooperative skills, herbalism, wellness/self-care, livestock raising, and food preparation/preservation.
We especially love workshops that:
Are taught by local instructors
Focus on the skills and folkways of our Appalachian region
Are aligned with Whippoorwill’s roots in the movement for social and environmental justice in Appalachia. This includes workshop proposals on monitoring soil, water, and air quality, extreme mineral extraction, bioremediation, community organizing, civic engagement, human identity politics, and cultural appropriation.

The Whippoorwill Festival is an all-volunteer, community-run labor of love. We strive to be as accessible as possible to our whole community, and our tickets are priced as affordably as possible, with early-bird specials and discounts for weekend package tickets. Your ticket cost includes parking, tent camping, and some meals (breakfast and dinner only). Please donate generously and know that 100% of your money goes to improving the festival – better workshops, music, food, and demonstrations!

Want to teach, perform or work-trade? Applications will be posted soon with further info! Workshops and Entertainment will be posted as they are confirmed.
