Both Wiccanfest and Harvest Fest are held on a large piece of private land located about 1 hour north of Toronto, and 40 minutes west of Barrie. One of the major attractions of the festival site, and due in large part to its diverse environment, is the unusually broad representation of much of the flora and fauna found in this part of Southern Ontario — all concentrated on a single site!
Although we do permit the limited and responsible harvesting of herbs on the site, we ask that you follow any directions given in terms of off limit areas and collection bans in this regard. Needless to say, it is absolutely forbidden to collect any live animal for any purpose.
There is a generous allotment of campsites located throughout the property, most of which have fire pits available for your use. The upper portion of the grounds is comprised of two separate large commons and is the location of the main site buildings. This is where you will find in dormitory cabins, cottages, administration building, dining hall, and programming cabin.
When it comes to choosing a location for your camping spot (that is, if you have not booked indoor space), a few factors should be considered. Of those factors, probably one of the most important is whether you want it relatively quiet around your camping area at night. If that is the case, don’t set up your tent near the main fire pit as it will definitely be loud there until sunrise. On the other hand, if you plan to sleep during the day hours, try to set up your tent in the shade of the wood or along the eastern tree line if you prefer to camp in the open. If you need help choosing, just ask one of our staff.
