Giant Puppets Save the World is bringing an epic display of interactive parade art, stilt walkers, and puppeteers to HSMF! Come pick out a silly costume from the Goat Barn an hour before the parade starts or wear your brightest funkiest craziest regalia to help puppeteer a giant silk bird kite, wave a flag, or don a backpack puppet. Coming back this year, we have Samba Stilt Circus from Santa Cruz bringing a ten piece samba drum core to march through the festival grounds. Stop by the Goat Barn during the day to sign up to puppeteer and learn more about the parade art!
Body & Spirit Playshops
Prepare yourself for another glorious day at High Sierra and show your mind and body some love with a variety of movement classes for every body and level of experience. All hour-long classes are held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the lawn between the Food Court and the Grandstand Meadow entrance (unless otherwise noted in the festival program).
A High Sierra favorite, come experience our midnight fire performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings on the lawn. A collective of dancers from Holistic Hooping, Flowtoys and other stellar performers from the Fire Community will bridge all of the “tools of the trade” with melodic music, beautiful dance, powerful flow and FIRE! Come experience the warmth and mesmerizing flow we all bring together in our Fire Extravaganza!
We’re excited to share that this year’s Silent Disco program brought to you by Bay Area DJ, Producer, Performer and Community leader Robin Applewood Music. Each night will feature special guest HSMF artists and rotating DJs and performers including Animal Prince and Cello Joe to offer a unique mixture of captivating soulful music in the wee hours.
Stop by the lawn for all the details!
