  • Description


    A Transcendental Festival Party based out of our Community in Utah (see separate profile) with tents, feather flags, stage, truck, and volunteers travels the Mountain States and Southwest March - September putting on festivals based on the Indian Festival of Holi.

    Our annual festival of tour includes Riverside, California (1,500 people) Los Angeles, California (7,000 people) Spanish Fork, Utah (25,000 people), San Fernando Valley, California (2,500), Las Vegas, Nevada (2,500), Ogden, Utah (2,000), Reno, Nevada (2,000), and Sacramento, California (1,500)

    Our schedule is always expanding and evolving. We seek volunteers who are willing to join the crew for a minimum of two weeks. 5 hours work for 5 days in return for which we pay for all food and places to sleep.

    Accommodation will be at campgrounds which mostly have showers, swimming pools, laundry and internet. We have a 2016 Thor ACE Motor Home which sleeps nine. Bring a sleeping bag. Saturdays will generally be festival days. Sunday we'll attend any local Krishna Temple afternoon kirtan and feast. Mondays and Tuesdays will be dedicated to relaxing, recreation, hiking, swimming and sight seeing.

    No volunteers will be accepted who smoke, drink, take pot, etc, and behavior between men and women should be appropriate to an ashram. The members of the permanent traveling party are early risers, so we ask volunteers to not stay up past 10:00 pm. This is best accomplished if they will refrain from taking energy drinks in the afternoon and evening.

    There will be vegetarian/vegan diet, yoga and seminars with power points on Bhakti Yoga according to the level of interest. All rise by 7:00 am and lights out 10:00 pm, except for sleep-in Sundays.

    The Festival itself is an amazing event which has transformed many lives in the last 10 years. Volunteers can meet up with the traveling party anywhere along the route May 1st - October in Reno. Year long there are openings as well for those who can do booking and permitting, equipment upgrade and repair, social media, marketing, graphic design and gardening. Off season accommodations has its own profile page under Krishna Community on workaway.

    If the schedule of festivals does not synch with your availability we have the home base (Krishna Community) in Utah which attracts many volunteers in its own right, and features organic gardening, nightly yoga, and vegetarian/vegan daily buffet and salad bar.
