When you enter ConFest you leave the mainstream world of "service delivery" behind. You become a participant in the well-being of the ConFest community. Two hours minimum work is included as part of the adult ticket price (this helps keep ticket prices low for everyone while encouraging participation). Please check in with the information area (also known as the Info Tent) at ConFest to find out what you can do.
ConFest (Conference/Festival) is a gathering of people wishing to share talents, skills, ideas, concerns and philosophies in a caring fun loving and tolerant atmosphere. The presentation of workshops, demonstrations, entertainments and the maintenance of site facilities are all performed by volunteers, monetary payment is neither accepted nor made.
At ConFest, people often set up villages with differing themes. ConFest is a clothing optional space, this means ConFesters can wear, or not wear anything they chose. Everywhere at ConFest is clothes optional. Don't be surprised to have a naked ticket collector when you arrive at the ConFest gate. Clothing can range from nothing, to body paint, a coat of mud, a sheet, a fairy costume, even a ball gown or dinner suit. At ConFest, clothing is not gender specific. There is just one simple rule, respect other ConFester's choices. A long running and very popular ConFest tradition is the communal artists studio. Activities include, body and sign painting, life drawing, clay work, organic art, photography etc . Artists, models and workshop facilitators are always welcome.
ConFest is a unique event and all attending speak of the 'ConFest spirit' as something very special. In the Music Village, and at odd spaces around our site, performers include acoustic, folk, jazz, reggae, world and indigenous musical acts as well as some circus, theatre, comedy and poetry on an open air stage.
As well as spontaneous music, dance and art events and happenings that can emerge anywhere at any time.
Once inside, all events are free.
