2018 Workshop Schedule


There are many theories, stories, knowledge, and unknowns with Serpent Mound. The Friends of Serpent Mound started this festival as a way for the public to share and learn about the many facets of Serpent Mound. Our speakers vary from locals, historians, Indeginous Americans, Scientists, Spiritualist, and more. The focus is Serpent Mound and the surrounding area. The local history, the uniqueness, the wildlife, and its ecology.

We have some local musicians, historians, artisans, and naturalist that will be helping us make this another great festival! We have also changed up the late night activities. The Open drumming is only from 9 PM to 11 PM and has changed as followed: one evening for open drumming (Thursday), one evening is an open jam session (Saturday) and one is a mix of the two (Friday). Another new addition will be a temporary walking labyrinth that the public can help us create and then enjoy. We hope to light it each night from 9 PM to 11 PM, for walking it under the stars! Another change is that we are only allowing camping this year to vendors, presenters, and volunteers. We are encouraging the public to visit the local Travel and Visitor’s websites to find their accommodations.

We also hope to have more family fun activities, more om that in the coming weeks!
