2015

3 DAYS OF FREE FUN!

June 16-18, 2017
at the Soaring Eagle Retreat

Next door to The Great Serpent Mound Park
Soaring Eagle Retreat, 375 Horner Chapel, Peebles, Ohio 45660

PARKING:

mapFOSM encourages the public to park at and visit Serpent Mound before joining the festival.

Vendors, speakers, and volunteers that are camping enter Soaring Eagle Retreat from Horner Chapel Rd.

This is a festival to share new and ancient knowledge, stories, and crafts!

There are many theories, stories, knowledge, and unknowns with Serpent Mound. The Friends of Serpent Mound started this festival as a way for the public to share and learn about the many facets of Serpent Mound. Our speakers vary from locals, historians, Native Americans form different Tribes, Scientists, Spiritualist, and more. We are neither inclusive, nor exclusive. This started as just a one day event in 2009, and we are ecstatic that it has grown into a 3-day festival! In 2014, we had torrential rains on Friday, but Saturday was beautiful and there was close to 1000 people that among the booths! In 2015, even with Tropical Storm Bill raining on us off and on all weekend, most of our vendors and participants enjoyed themselves and stated how they liked the new location - it gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy the natural ambiance of Serpent Mound and the hustle and bustle of the festival, separately!

Festival Rules: (For everyone.)

  • This is a family friendly event - there is to be NO alcohol, drugs, guns, or nudity!
  • Children are welcome and must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.
  • There is no smoking in the Main Tents or within the group hikes. There are proper places to put one’s cigarette butts, so please do not throw them on the ground.
  • There is to be NO Indian Policing or Politics permitted – All Races, All Religions, All Our Relations
