Rainbow Gathering - TBA

July 1-7, 2017     Location TBA the week before  
The Rainbow Family gathers every year in the National Forests of North America, always during the week of July 1-7. The peak of the Gathering on July 4 begins with morning silence, broken by a community prayer for world peace and followed by a full day of (acoustic) music, dancing, feasting, and celebration. The event runs on the principle of communal collaboration with everyone bringing and giving what they have. Food is donated to the many kitchens that are responsible for feeding the Gathering, free of charge. The use of money is taboo, and prohibited items include alcohol, firearms, and sound amplifiers.
