Tucked away near Backbone's State Forest, the festival sits on 20 acres of old-growth shaded field accessed by a short gravel driveway. We are an hour's drive from Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Decorah, and Dubuque Iowa.


Coming south from Strawberry Point on Forestville Road, our driveway will be on the right after the road begins to curve.


Coming north from Manchester, follow signage to Backbone State Park's east gate. Continue past the east gate and take the next left turn
