KarmaFest, a holistic, psychic and yoga festival weekend of camping and fun, returns to Pottstown for the Labor Day weekend, September 1 through 4, at Fellowship Farm. The festival will feature enlightening lectures, meditation, live music, swimming, vegan and vegetarian food, 50 to 75 interesting vendors and a full weekend of yoga. Also available will be special workshops and a children’s program.
KarmaFest was founded by Patricia Hawse in 2005, after she experienced the effects of holistic health firsthand while serving for the Red Cross in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Witnessing the immediate effects of yoga and meditation to relieve tension and increase energy and balance, Hawse vowed to spread the word through a festival—KarmaFest.
“This year, music is the thing!” says Hawse. Headlining is the neo-psychedelic rock band Flux Capacitor, which will perform Sunday night. Other groups include Stella’s Infirmary, Cosmic Jerry Band, Gypsy Funk Squad, Jug Funk Boys, Montaj and Mountainwolf.
“Staying the full weekend is the best part of this festival,” Hawse adds. “Lots of camping out in tents and others in the dorms. The pool, the bonfire, the drum circles—that’s what brings us back for this special, annual celebration at this excellent venue.”
Natural Awakenings of Bucks and Montgomery counties, Lehigh Valley and Berks/Lancaster editions are proud to be supporting media sponsors of this year’s KarmaFest.
Campers can arrive after 6 p.m. on September 1 and will check out by noon on September 4. Daytime-only participants are also welcome from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., September 2 and 3.
Cost: Full weekend pass, with three-night stay, starts at $111 for tent camping and $188 for dorm stay (children under 12 are free unless staying in dorm). Student tent rates and meal plans are available. Day passes: $20. Location: Fellowship Farm, 2488 Sanatoga Rd., Pottstown.
