Wild Goose Festival

August 8 - 11Hot Springs, NC


What is the Wild Goose Festival?

Wild Goose is a community gathered at the intersection of justice, spirituality, music and art. Our main annual event is a 4-day, outdoor festival hosted each summer in North Carolina. We also present several smaller, more specialized events in other parts of the country throughout the year.

“Wild Goose” is a Celtic spirituality metaphor that evokes unpredictability, beauty, and grace. We take inspiration from this concept, as well as many events such as Greenbelt, Burning Man, the Iona Community and SXSW.

We invite you to join us. We welcome you to talk, listen, eat and camp together with us as equals, captivated and challenged by the call of radical humanity, and who seek to celebrate diversity and promote the common good

We’ll be there!

In addition to hosting students for campus visits, the School of Divinity has exhibits at several events throughout the year. You will find admissions staff, current students, and alumni ready to speak with you about positive change School of Divinity students and alumni are effecting in communities and congregations, and how you can act on your call to lead and serve.

If you would like to meet with a representative while he or she is in your area, please contact them using the information below. We look forward to meeting with you!
