Friends, UTOPiAns, we are nearing the end of one chapter of UTOPiAfest, and the beginning of another. This year's festival will be the last to be held at Four Sisters Ranch in Utopia. For the past eight years, the sisters have graciously and generously opened the ranch to us, and given us the opportunity to create memories and relationships that will last lifetimes. On the foundation of that sacred ground, we've created something truly special. 
     On paper, UTOPiAn model has seemed almost too idyllic: Creating a world class production with a capped audience of 2000, BYOB, non-corporate, with a modest ticket price, and free everything else. This type of festival could not have existed without the labor of love and sacrifice from the Four Sisters family and the whole UTOPiA team and community. The fest was born, and has matured with incredible nurturing and investment from an amazing family. Now it is time to leave the nest, and find a home of our own. In 2018, we will begin the next phase in a place that will preserve the UTOPiAn spirit and vibe, and will foster long term sustainability. The core values and elements of the fest, quality, affordability, interaction with nature, and intimacy, will never change. 
    Even though the fest will have a new home, you are always welcome at Four Sisters Ranch. They have two rental cabins available, and primitive camping is available year round! The ranch is especially beautiful in the spring, and it is an amazing place to retreat, relax, and recharge. Reserve your Utopian vacation here. 
     In the meantime, we can't wait to return to the ranch with you in September. Secure your tickets today. As always, tickets include camping, parking, and all activities. Buy-5-Get-1-Free is still happening as well. 
The lineup for this year's lineup will be revealed on March 1, and blind pre-sale pricing will end. Stay tuned to all the usual channels, and our newly revamped website!
