What is the White Owl Music Fest?
The white owl has appeared in mythological writings as a watchful guardian over the forest and a symbol of unity for all woodland creatures. In that spirit, we want all who gather to experience a kindred togetherness in faith, hope, and love as we unify in celebration of some carefully-curated musicians who are releasing music that foster spiritual, emotional, and mental health. We hope you leave this fest feeling more soul-fed and inspired than when you arrived.
What kind of precautions are being taken in light of COVID-19?
Our first attempt at the WOMF was wiped out due to the pandemic last year, so this year, we are re-building the whole event to be as safe and mindful of COVID as possible. This first meant that we made it an all-outdoor open-air event. We will practice social distancing on the grounds. We will have a COVID check in station upon arrival (including temperatures taken). We will see where things stand in late May, but it's quite possible it might be a mask-required event. Safety is our top concern.
What should I bring?
Being an all-day outdoor music fest, you should bring blankets or lawn chairs (some foldable lawn chairs will be available to rent on site). Depending on the weather, you may need to bring an umbrella. Bug spray is encouraged. Of course, bring some cash for food, drinks, and artist merchandise. [All personal food & drink besides water are not permitted in the concert area, but can be left in your car or on-site lodging.]
What should I not bring?
Prohibited items include weapons of any kind, illegal drugs, clothing or signage with profanity or hate speech, or disruptive actions. Any of these things will result in removal from the premises without refund. Dogs can be leashed at on-site camping / glamping zones, but are not permitted in the concert area for two major reasons: allergies and poop.
