Festival
Tell us more about what you’re planning
Wild Goose can be best described as a festival at the intersection of arts, music, culture, justice, and faith. It is a place where the Holy Spirit can move you. It is a family-friendly event. It is for all ages (although we think it appeals to Young Adults especially). It is a safe event/space for LGBTQ folks.

Episcopalians have been a presence at the Goose since its inception but in the past few years have been an official tent (aka “Episcotent”) and venue for speakers, daily office/worship, discussion groups & panels, and a place of rest and connection for festival goers. Located in an ideal/prime location at the festival, Episcopalians are invited to camp behind the Episcotent (as well as invited to lead/participate in providing hospitality to festival goers who come to the tent for events.)

See you at the Goose! Come Holy Spirit!
