Folks, a reminder to all Confesters.
'Tranquility' is a tobacco, alcohol and drug free, quiet camping area. There is no amplified music, no drumming or noisy parties at night in Tranquility. If you find it hard to sleep at festivals because of noise, then Tranquility might be for you.
Within Tranquility is Bliss, a community kitchen where anyone is welcome to come and participate by contributing food and helping cook wheat-free vegan meals to share with all present which typically involves feeding more than 100 people at a time.
We cook large volumes of food and eat our meals as a community. We'd love to welcome you & your contributions.
Individual cooking facilities are available in the cooking circles scattered throughout the festival site including Tranquility if you'd prefer to cook for yourself & your friends/family.
The Bliss kitchen area is the only vegan & wheat free kitchen on the Confest site. Non vegans are very welcome but we ask you to please only bring vegan/wheat free food stuffs into the kitchen area.
If Bliss/Tranquility appeals to you or if you have queries about Bliss/Tranquility and how it works, we ask you to please join the 'ConFest Bliss' facebook group and post any comments or questions you may have there.
The Bliss activity area is located within Tranquility.
The Bliss activity area includes, amongst other things, Bliss Community Cooking (previously known as 'Bliss Kitchen'), Bliss Lounge/s and the Confest Library. 'Bliss Community Cooking' is highly culturally and ethically inclusive in that all food prepared is Vegan. It is also wheat free (but those with a Celiac issue should note that meals may not be gluten free).
'Vegan' simple means food prepared with no ingredients derived from animal sources. And by the way, fish are not vegetables, they are animals. I am amazed by the number of people I come across who think that fish are vegetables. Sounds crazy but it is true! Communal cooking and eating the results thereof is a great way to meet other ConFesters and enjoy their company.
Who provides the food, utensils and cutlery? Basically the community does. DTE provides funding that covers some essentials but from then on it is up to the community. What is especially needed from fellow ConFesters during ConFest is fresh produce.
All food prepared in the "Bliss Community Cooking' area is for sharing. Private food preparation can be done in the 'Cooking Circles' located within Tranquility and in other areas.
