The fun and family friendly, music charged Woodland Hippie Fest returns for its fourth year on May 14. Attendees can look forward to a diverse mix of great live music including headlining Iqulah and the Gideon Family as well as the rockin’ Purple Haze Jimi Hendrix Tribute Band. The list of live music goes on and offers a hippie loving mix of the best in Reggae, Rock, Alternative, Roots, Dancehall, ’50-60-70s favorites, and a bit of Rap. The idea is to have fun, preserve the hippie vibe in its many peace and joy loving expressions, share with family and friends, perhaps dance, enjoy some good food and drinks as well as vendor crafts, and please the ears to the max.
Hippie Fest tickets are a mere $20 for adults and $10 for children with kids 2 and under free. This is a one day hippie extravaganza taking place on Saturday at a new venue located at Nelson’s Grove, 15285 County Road 99E, Woodland, CA. Attendees are encouraged to come out in their best hippie attire however they might interpret that era’s style. The best outfit may win a prize and if you come in your lovebug car, you get extra thumbs up for bringing it on hippie style to the max. Headbands, bell-bottoms, tie-dye, flower-child dresses and skirts, fringe and more fringe, peace symbols, wide leather belts, ankle bells, men’s leather vests, free and easy hair styles and afros, leather sandals, colorful t-shirts and more are all good ideas and will help to add to the hippie vibe. Go for it and have fun and ad to the fun.
