Yes, you read that correctly. #FreeTheNipple, a movement championing freedom of expression for all by proclaiming women should have the same rights as men when it comes to walking around topless, has been sweeping the nation by storm and now, infiltrated the festival circuit as well.
While the majority (if not all?) festivals implement some sort of no nudity rule, NorCal’s Enchanted Forest Gathering does things just a little bit differently. Deep in the heart of Northern California out at Black Oak Ranch an intimate festival with a grand scheme.
Enchanted Forest Gathering’s mission has been to nourish and activate personal growth within its participants, inspire collective sharing and redefine conscious celebration. To that end, they have continued to build upon a safe and alcohol-free environment which serves as fertile ground for a new kind of festival experience and a container for an experimental way of life. This experiment inspires attendees to find deeper, more meaningful stimulation free of alcohol, setting a remarkably different tone for a gathering and encouraging new kinds of expression.
So bust out those nips and get ready to twerk your buns off as Enchanted Forest Gathering gears up to celebrate its sixth year!
