A FESTIVAL THAT WILL LEAVE YOU FEELING YOU INSPIRED, REJUVENATED & EMPOWERED

The New Moon Festival - Yosemite Edition - is an all-inclusive retreat into one of the most serene landscapes on earth. It brings together 150 influencers from around the world to DISCOVER the majesty of nature, to EMBRACE the gifts and lessons in every moment, and to embody PRESENCE as the ultimate contribution.

Sometimes life can be overwhelming, and in those moments, we lose ourselves in the midst of all the chaos. It leaves us feeling burnt out, depleted, unhappy. The New Moon Fest is a weekend to get centered, to realign with your dreams and visions, to elevate your body/mind/spirit, and ultimately, to build a lasting, supportive community.

We believe that joining together in reverence of nature brings inspiration.  As such, we have chosen to host our festival in a beautiful rustic mountain retreat center that is modest, comfortable, and beautiful.

While it is not our goal to recreate the Four Seasons, it is our priority to bring you a festival experience that will be fun, memorable and transformative. You can expect 3 nights of a clean and  comfortable lodging experience with great amenities.  

We aim to cultivate community and connection throughout the weekend.  As such, all housing is shared housing.  What this means is that all rooms, aside from patron (donor) cabins, will have at least one other person in them.  For example, a queen room with private bath will have 2 people in the room.  Each room can be filled with your friends or significant others, or we can match you with people who will bring new energy and connection into your life.
