Published 9:13 am Thursday, August 21, 2008

The Harmony Park Music Garden will undergo a trans-cosmic tribadelic space carnival the first weekend in September when Harvest Fest comes to the little patch of land off Geneva Lake.

Harvest Fest, which is the park’s longest running show, will be Sept. 5-7, featuring visual art, music, costumes and theater under the park’s majestic oaks.

According to the Harvest Fest Web site, in previous years there have been as many as 300 performers, including fire rituals, a free healing arts center, sheet dancing, Native American traditional drumming and chanting during the weekend.

The event features the band Wookiefoot, along with several dozen other bands.

Campers are invited to come down to rent a campsite as well. Camping is free with a ticket purchase.

Harmony Park first began after owner Jay Sullivan wanted to hold events where people could learn about the green community. In 1992 he rented out the park and put on an event. Sullivan said it was a success and so he did it the following two years. The park was then put up for sale and Sullivan bought it.

Now the big events of the year include Project Earth (Environmental Action Restoring the Harmony) and Harvest Fest.

Private events can also be scheduled.
