What will you be providing?

A variety of different music will be performed at GPGT 2023 under a high-quality light display on two adjacent stages. Two day camping is included with admission.

Firewood will be available for purchase on site. Vendors will be selling a variety of foods, nonalcoholic beverages, as well as crafts/clothing/tie dye/etc. There will be live painters and an art gallery featuring local and regional artists near the stage. Different workshops will be provided throughout the weekend! WORKSHOPS ARE FREE to all ticket holders.

Are there activities for my children?

Yes, besides the music, workshops, art and vendors, Face painting and other activities will be offered. An adult MUST be present with the children who want to participate.
