Villages are a long running and rich tradition at ConFest, groups of people form villages based on: workshops, common beliefs, themes, activities, jokes, whims, social and environmental issues, arts & culture, social groups, community organisations and many others.
Often it is simply a happy accident of geography that brings people together. Like almost everything at ConFest these villages are self organised and often spontaneous. Many of the villages plan to or find themselves camped close to one of the Communal Cooking areas, decorating and energising the space to form a community hub for info, interaction and often entertainment, as well as for feeding and caring for themselves.
Some villages from past and current ConFests are;
Spiral, Silly Hat, Walter Avenue, Pagan, Laceweb, The Grove, Healing, Fire Dance, Drumming, Arts, Magic Forest, Gypsy, Mud Tribe, Tek Know, Forest, Pt'Chang, Queer, Transgender, Ananda Marga, Springfield, Rainbow, White Gums, Eurotrash .......
