The festival is a celebration of music, dance, story and craft, and so much more. Taking place in a beautiful lakeside setting, Mariposa features some of the most renowned artists on the North American and international scenes, as well as emerging artists for you to discover. It is a 3-day getaway with 150+ performances on 12 stages. For those camping at Mariposa, the fun starts the day before the festival opens and finishes the day after it closes.

Our camping is in a lovely, mostly treed area just a short walk from the festival stages. Much of the camping area has a view of the lake, and there’s easy access to the beach for all campers too!
