This year we are switching to a new system for the merchants, with the goal of circulating financial abundance among the members of the community. Rather than a paying a flat fee, we are asking merchants to tithe 10% of their gross sales. A portion of that money will go into the financial aid fund and be distributed to subsidize registration fees for needy community members. Merchant spaces are available on a first-come first-served basis. There is a $25 deposit to sign up for a merchant spot and this is applied toward your total tithe. Contact the Merchant Coordinator with any questions you have.

On-site Registration

There will be no on-site registration. All registrations must be received by July 30.

Refund Policy

All refund requests must be submitted to Refunds will be given according to the table below.

The 50% deposit is non-refundable. Anything paid above that will be refunded.

No Refunds after July 15th, as funds are committed by this time. Thank you for your understanding.


We welcome the next generation and look for ways for children to plug in to the festival. However, the nature of the all-night festival might make it challenging for those with small children. The Fire Family Gathering staff cannot provide childcare at night, but we will help facilitate cooperative childcare arrangements among parents during the Fire Circle.

Fire Family Gathering is not a licensed child care organization, and parents are responsible for their children at all times. We will work with parents to organize cooperative child care and to help coordinate activities for children, based on how many children of what ages register. We invite all community members attending the gathering to consider what you could offer in the way of storytelling, games, workshops, or other activities.

Children under 5 are free and must be taken care of at all times by their parent or guardian. All attendees under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


Pets of any kind are not allowed as per our contract with the camp.


Motorcycles are not allowed. The road into the camp is rough and, for their protection and yours the camp has a no-motorcycle policy.

Special Needs

The terrain at Camp Cutter is hilly and steep in places. We can make only limited accommodations for those with mobility challenges and special needs, due to the conditions of the site. For example, there is considerable walking involved to reach the showers and meals area. Please contact us before registering if you have special needs so we can help you determine whether we can accommodate you.


We ask that everyone arrive on Thursday before dinner at 6:00 pm. Arrival Wednesday is by arrangement only - contact the registrar. Because we create a safe, closed container, we do not allow arrivals on Saturday.

Village Builders

Village Builders are the many hands that physically put the festival together and make it become the magical reality that it is. Village Builder are required to have attended an all-night fire circle gathering at least once before. Movers & Shakers must arrive on site by Monday afternoon, August 6th and stay through the end of clean up on Monday, August 13th. If you are interested in becoming a Village Builder, please contact . There are limited spots, so contact us ASAP.
