NEW FIRE Festival (NFF) is a sustainable, transformational festival that will be held at Green Meadows in Santa Cruz on April 8&9, 2017. NFF offers our guests an opportunity to immerse themselves in a new world, celebrating our most positive human qualities in a spirit of love and oneness. Two days of music, art, dance, food, craft, yoga, play and camping; inspire and uplift guests along with a variety of talks and workshops. The festival is grounded in principles of ecological mindfulness and sustainability, demonstrating how we can develop our communities while being environmentally responsible.
