SpiritFire Festival 2023 will be held at a beautiful new location in the Adirondack Mountains near Ft. Ann, New York. It is also close to Queensbury and Lake George NY. The closest large airport is in Albany (ALB), about a one hour drive, and we are also close to Burlington (BTV) at just over two hours. Other major airports, such as Boston, MA, are about 4.5 hours drive away.
Exact location and directions are included within the registration information packet you will receive after registering.
We are not able to provide airport/train/bus station pickup service, but you are encouraged to use our Facebook group to request/arrange rides. So far we’ve had very good participation with ride sharing.
The camp itself is a wonderful and spacious facility with a choice of tent camping or when you register you can apply for space in the limited platform tents (for 4 people) or even set up you own tent on an empty platform (these are also limited.) Empty platforms are generally 12×14, with some variance. In mid-May we’ll send out an email confirming or adjusting your lodging request (it’s a new site this year, so we’ll be surveying what is available in the spring.) No matter where you decide to lodge, it will be beautiful.

There is a shower house and latrines are placed throughout camp. The dining hall is spacious and amazing, and we’ll host rain-impacted events there. Options to dine outside will of course be facilitated as we can provide space, and we’ll also enjoy some very convenient workshop spaces.
