The Wild Roses Festival is a gathering that celebrates sisterhood, reconnection, reskilling and rewilding of the divine feminine. Together, we weave a sacred bowl that holds the energy of unabashed allyship, raw authenticity, and the purest forms of wisdom and (self) love held by maidens, mothers and crones alike. Let this festival be a gift to yourself and a rite of passage- a time to drop the worries of the modern world behind and surrender to 'the village', comm-unity and the metamorphosis that awaits.

We give reverence to our inspiration, the Alberta Wild Rose, whose resilient beauty weathers all of our storms, and comes back stronger each year in providing her sweet smelling nectar and nourishment to the bees, animals and human kind. In a time of a 'great divide', let us come together and hold space for all seasons of perspectives and emotions with unity in our hearts. 

 

With deep gratitude to the land in which we are borrowing, we honor our time on the land and give back to it, leaving it more beautiful and clean with right reciprocity. This is a leave no trace event- please be apart of our ecosystem in keeping the land clean and free of debris.

We have curated the container of facilitators- incredible women from the all over our planet on Treaty 6 to share with us their wisdom, talent, and innate magic. From live acoustic performances, mindful movement, soulful guidance, reskilling through ancient methods and practices, and of course, an epic ecstatic dance party- you will find activating experiences around every corner. This is your weekend to receive- and also, to come and pour your own unique vibration to which we know will nourish the collective.

Wild Roses Festival offers an opportunity for women to come into rest, renewal and reconnection.  From relaxing at the Nordic Spa Circuit, to shopping our Marketplace, to getting a massage or oracle reading, to stargazing at night around the fire with friends, old and new- there is something for everyone here. With so many diverse experiences around every corner, it is up to you to intuitively choose your own journey on which feels aligned and in resonance 

 

Our vision for the festival is to co-create a container for the world we wish to live in. Women hold so much wisdom- and together we have so much to learn from eachother. Let us move forward with curiosity, empathy and solidarity to work together to come into right relationships with ourselves, and our planet.

Set an intention and allow yourself to open- knowing that every person you meet and experience you have is divinely timed.
