Hail and well met, traveler. 

We welcome our community of witches and wizards, bards and magicians, rangers and wilders, cryptids and cryptonaturalists, mischiefs and feyfolk, healers and alchemists
through a portal to feral adventure and celebration
in an old growth forest of the Pacific Northwest 

as the sacred salmon return home to spawn
and the Perseid meteor shower graces the waxing crescent moon!

Join us for a camping festival weekend of fire, food, drink, story telling, music making, dancing, swimming, skill sharing, questing, puzzling, orb pondering, and battle.


Renaissance means "rebirth"
It contains multitudes and so do we!

Come donning your finest medieval dress with dramatic, poofy sleeves, corsets, crowns, pointy hats, tunics, jerkins, armor, swords, feathers, furs, capes, cloaks, and more!

Add a dash of magical lore with elf ears, butterfly wings, antlers, etc. 
Have fun creating and inhabiting a character that will only haunt this forest for one all too brief enchanted weekend.

But please wear sensible shoes and clothes for a weekend in the woods!
Avoid heels lest ye be stuck in the mud and only wear fancy dress that can get dirty and keep you comfy in August!
The trails can be treacherous and the water fast and deep.


Are you Magic?

Or are you Melee?
