What Are You Doing Labor Day Weekend?
In just three weeks, families and friends will gather for the standard Labor Day humdrum around cookouts, picnics and street-side parades. But a few will experience something entirely different than any other Labor Day celebration they’ve experienced before.
Wild Goose West.
The west coast version of the Wild Goose Festival, a 3-day celebration of justice, spirituality, music and art, is making it’s debut at the Benton County Fairgrounds in Corvallis, Oregon this year on August 31-September 2.
So consider the perhaps long-forgotten road trip. An adventure on Amtrak or Geryhound. A journey into ride sharing. An impulsive ticket buy via Expedia or Travelocity. And plan a stand out Labor Day Weekend experience you and your family and friends will remember for life.
There are ticket package deals for child add-ons, single parents with kids and 4-person family units, as well as students. And camping out is hard to beat at just $10.
Need some extra insight into what you’d be getting yourself into? Check out the photos, videos, articles and blog posts from Wild Goose East–the North Carolina version of the festival held this past June.
Look, read and listen about how Wild Goose East invited people into something significant and then please, come be a part of the memories like these that will be made this Labor Day.
