Be aware there may be drumming every night that last until 11 pm. Friday night honors the Native American Drum and Thursday and Saturday night is Open Drum.

This is primitive camping at the edge of a field, with no electric or water at your site. A Community Tent will offer electricty for a coffee pot, hot plate, and phone charging area. There will also be tables and a non-drinking water tank. Tents are preferred, but a few RVs are possible (again, no electric). Volunteers pitching a tent, pays nothing per night, however RV’s and campers cost $20 a night per day. In addition, each person needs to sign up for their volunteering duties for the weekend.

We have several areas one can help with – greeter, gofer, parking guide, help with set-up (Thur. & Fri.) or take down (Sun. & Mon.), daily trash duty, nightly security duty, EMT volunteering, or other areas.

The Summer Solstice Celebration is to promote the multitude of aspects associated with Serpent Mound, from who made it to how is it used today! This is a Public Festival! We are looking for individuals that would be interested in helping us educate the public in areas of…
