Acorn Gathering 2024

Monday March 25th - Saturday March 30th



Registration Information:

The Acorn Gathering is constantly evolving and has become a really unique experience for people of all ages and walks of life. For participants, this gathering is 5 days/nights of a dynamic array of primitive & earth skills classes from highly skilled and passionate instructors, 5 breakfasts and 5 dinners, evening fireside activities, hiking, parking, camping & much more.

We offer a sliding scale for our ticket prices and use the parts of a Tree to represent the price options for admission- Root, Trunk & Fruit. We are hoping this sliding scale meets everyone’s financial abilities and brings a good balance for the longevity and sustainability of The Acorn Gathering. Ticket choices will remain confidential. Therefore, we invite you to choose your ticket price thoughtfully, based on where you are at financially. All tickets include the same amenities. ~~*~~ Thank you!

There will be NO Root tickets available after March 1st, 2024, IF we still have space by then. There is a limited capacity and the gathering typically does sell out, thus all tickets are on a first come, first serve basis. So get your tickets as soon as possible to secure your spot. It would be an honor to have you join the ~Acorn Family~!

Please read our REFUND POLICY

Full-Time Volunteer/Work Exchange opportunities are currently closed. We will post an update here if they open again. Thank you!

This is a rain or shine event. Sorry NO pets OR animals of any type allowed from participants.

What to Expect and Bring

This is not your average experience. This is NOT a festival... This is a drug & alcohol-free gathering of folks from all walks of life and ages coming together because we want to grow and expand our hearts, minds and hands to live in a deeper way with the Earth. This is a 5 day opportunity to learn new skills that teach us how to make things with resources from the Earth, in a good way. This is a time to step away from our busy lives, our lives filled with advanced computer technology (phones!!!) and learn how to be in the moment and connect with others.
