Why Do You Do It?

It’s no secret that Cecilfest is a non-profiting adventure for myself. The question that I get asked the most is, “Why do you do it?”. To make a long story short, a professor of mine in college, Robert W. Smith, created a scenario in class with an ending that scared me. ‘…As we get older our circle of friends gets smaller and smaller.’ Friends are the most important part of my life and I want to make that circle grow as large as possible.


Is there a Membership this year?

Cecilfest is a Musical Family Reunion but there are many expenses.  We are camping on private land and only our family and friends are invited attend.  There is a suggested donation of $30 per adult. Meeting our expenses will ensure the future of our Reunion.

We are a very talented extended family and many folks contribute in different ways, from music to yoga to labor.  This makes it fun for all.  Any contribution you make from the heart will be cherished.


What do I do when I get to Cecilfest?

Upon arrival at the venue you must:
• stop by the Greeting Tent to let us know you are here.
• Present proof of invitation.
email me if you have any questions about proving invitation

After this you will be given a *Wristband and shown where you camp and/or park.   *Wristbands must be warn at all times.


Why are there different color wrist bands?

Everyone who attends the Cecilfest Family Reunion will be given a wristband.   Wristbands must be warn at all times.  There will be three different bands, Musicians, Family & Young family.

•  Musicians All the musicians are performing without compensation.  When you see them give em’ a hug or a cold beer.  Musical talent often goes unrewarded, so lets show them some gratitude.

“Would you let them spend the night at  your house with your family?”

Children are welcome, but keep in mind it is a party. Anyone under eighteen must be accompanied by a parent and have a wristband telling who they came with. We will have a kids area.
