In the Kids Tent we focus on creativity and finding our place in the larger stories of God’s people. Using the Godly Play method as a foundation, we’ll sing, share stories, wonder together and have a time of free art response.

Equipped with a secure check-in system, the program is facilitated by a team of volunteers, all of whom have received background checks. Each family will be assigned a number to be written on their wristbands upon registration. All adults with matching numbers will be able to pick up their child(ren). Wristbands MUST be worn by the whole family in order to drop off and pick up kids.

Sessions are limited capacity, so parents should register Thursday night or (as possible) sign up for the following day’s sessions by the end of that afternoon’s session. A limited number of slots may be available for those with day passes.

Fun, age appropriate activities are offered, but this is anything but a babysitting service. The kids will enjoy intentional community with other kids and adults while playing and discovering meaning together.

The Beer Tent at Wild Goose is a sacred space of its own within the festival. Here, you’ll find friendly faces eager to introduce you to a new craft brew, pour you a glass of wine, and (if they aren’t too busy) hear a bit of your story. Our beers are provided by a vendor in the Western NC area, so the Tent is another way the festival partners with the local community. The “Pub” is a great place to bump into your favorite speakers and workshop presenters, process life with a friend, or simply enjoy a moment gazing out at the beautiful natural setting. You’ll find us just beside the main stage, a perfect space to hear all the great afternoon and evening bands. We’re also setting up shop near the cafe, so you won’t have to make that painful decision between staying for the next session or grabbing a delicious beverage. And when it comes time for Beer n’ Hymns, we’ve got your hookup.

Virtual Reality has frequently been labeled as “the ultimate empathy machine”. The Wild Goose Virtual Cinema provides an opportunity to virtually experience stories in immersive environments that take us out of our comfort zone and into worlds that show us another way of looking at things. Sign up for a spot and take a deep dive into some extraordinary experiences:
– Meeting a Monster (recovering from life in a hate group)
– The Atomic Tree (a bonsai that survived the atomic blast in Hiroshima)
– The Journey (three children in challenging global environments) – Lionhearted (A young refugee living in Athens)
– Thin Places: Iceland (a poetic exploration of thin places in nature and churches)

Virtual Cinema is located on Main Street near the front gate across from Wild Goose Media/
