This will be my 19th. First one was the 20th in 1995. Went for the weekend and camped in the middle of the Zone where they have all the parties now. Became a Worker the next year as a Path Performer roaming the Land body painting all week. Now there is the Painting Tree and we stay in one place. Easier to find us that way. Also quit a job years later to go because the Union wouldn't give me the time off. That year I quit, went to Festival and became an Artist. It was scary but I'm still creating art.

I'm loving reading these stories.

Yay Pamela, you became an artist--Fest inspires!

I was born an artist. Festival taught me to trust being an artist. To believe in myself. :o)

This will be my 7th fest. I will be with my 6 year old daughter and it will be her 6th fest and my 3 year old daughter and it will be her 4th fest.

I went once before having children and then various things got in my way of getting back for a few years. Once I had a daughter, it became even more important for me to get back to the land. Since then, I have only missed 1 year, when I was 9 months pregnant (and almost ended up coming anyway).

I met a little girl on the Crosstown one year. I asked her how old she was and how many fests she had been to. She said, "I'm 9, but I've been to 10 fests because for the first one I was in my mom's belly."
