This year we will once again be at The Kickapoo Stump Dodger Campground in Gays Mills, Wisconsin. This will be our fourth event at this beautiful location which is fast becoming a very hot spot for other festivals. Located in apple country along the Kickapoo River this venue has all the amenities one could ever want for a great experience. It is surrounded by  majestic bluffs, deep down in the valley. The river runs right through the valley and has canoeing, fishing and other activities. The shower house, public bathrooms, and community swimming pool located on the festival grounds are always a welcome sight.

The stage and concert area have  great acoustics because of the bluffs, built in stage and tall trees that make up the campground. There is electric and water at all campsites.

This year Cosmic Railroad will be playing over 2 NIGHT for the 11th FAMILY GATHERING  We will also be adding some of the most talented regional and local acts around to add to what will be undoubtedly the most memorable Family Gathering yet.

We will have merchandise and food vendors,  The Mind Body and Spirit Expo will be back, The eco-points and recycling contest will also make its return. Plus, Art Demos, Glass Blowing, Fire Spinners, LED hoopers, and any other fun summer festy things you can imagine.
