2019 Tentative Speakers Schedule


2019 Workshop Schedule

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, Indigenous Americans, Scientists, Spiritualist, and more. The focus is Serpent Mound and the surrounding area. The local history, the uniqueness, the wildlife, and its ecology.

We have some local musicians, historians, artisans, and naturalist that will be helping us make this another great festival! We have also changed up the late night activities. The Open Drumming is only from 9 PM to 11 PM on Friday Night and an Open Jam Session will be held in the main tent Saturday Night, 9 PM to 11 PM.

We are allowing FOSM Members and the public to camp, as long as they register early and have followed the rules in the past. We still encourage those wanting different accommodations to visit the local Travel and Visitor’s web sites. (Scroll to the bottom of this page.)
