If you think Treefest! is a party just to celebrate the merits of oaks, pines, and sycamores, think again. Instead, it’s a two-day reggae jam festival held underneath the Brick House Kitchen’s magnificent live oak trees, featuring both local and regional musicians. “The inspiration for the event is the grounds themselves. With tons of trees towering over us, it’s a natural scene to put on a good festival,” says vocalist Jeremy Anderson of the band TreeHouse! Each night will have two headliners, with Ben Fagan and the Holy City Hooligans and Sun-Dried Vibes on Friday and The Resolvers and TreeHouse! on Saturday. As the clock strikes midnight on Saturday, get ready for the Superjam, when a collection of musicians from each band will take the stage. Like any good festival, you’ll also find body painting, crafts, fire dancing, and hooping. Other artists will paint on the spot, inspired by their surroundings and the music. With the combined ticket, you can get in a solid 22 hours of swirlin’ and twirlin’ with other jam fans. Just make sure you’re able to get home, even if it’s in the wee hours, as no camping will be permitted.
