Past Manifestations

In 2013, the Carnival presented two 10 day events, on church lawns within Harrisonburg & Charlottesville, Virginia. A 120 mile group bike trip threaded the consecutive Carnival residencies together. In 2014, we curated round-the-clock programming at our own venue at the Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs, VA. In early 2015, we contributed to Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministeries‘ Festival of Radical Discipleship in Oak View, CA then erected the Carnival world for a weekend at Area 15 in Charlotte, NC later that fall. In 2016, we built the Carnival world in the Harrison neighborhood of north Minneapolis, behind Redeemer Lutheran Church. In the summer of 2018 we had two hubs of activity, building our main-stage and midway in downtown Philadelphia at Arch St United Methodist Church, and our eco-village demonstration project within Norris Square Neighborhood Project’s urban gardens.
