Harvest is unique. Organized by friends, for friends, like nowhere else. It’s not a chance to lose your mind in excess.

This is a reminder to take good care of yourself and not become a casualty of excess creating problems for you, your friends and the events you attend.

We individually and as a group have a responsibility to: “Eat” good food, get good “Sleep”, “Drink lots of Water” and “Leave No Trace” because “Excess Makes a Mess” so please “Moderate Yourself and Friends!”

This is what is required of each of us. With this in mind, we as a community will continue to gather and celebrate together for years to come, building upon our successes to make Harvest better and more refined as we grow into the future.

We look forward to your conversations throughout the Harvest weekend on this topic. Join us in the Harvest Haven for support and offerings. The Haven offers 24-hour dedicated confidential support to all Harvest Festival attendees. We are a non-judgemental group of folks dedicated to your well-being and care.

Stay safe and healthy

Ride to and from Harvest

  • Ensure your driver is sober and well rested. Refuse to allow anyone to drive otherwise
