"Many of the Serenity Festival performers, presenters, staff and vendors are sober and/or in recovery. Our intention is to create an all-natural experience without the presence of substances. We welcome those struggling with substance abuse, in recovery from substance abuse, or simply wish to explore the idea of having a good time while remaining present without the influence of substances. This is a non-profit event and all proceeds will be donated to Animas Alano Club." says Robert Holmes, owner of Tico Time & Pura Vida Venue.
Serenity Festival will feature a wide array of musical genres ranging from world beat, transformational, bluegrass, rock, reggae, singer/songwriter, and electronic dance music. Confirmed international acts include Satsang, Tierro Band with Bridget Law, Poranguí, Pato Banton, and many more! Various groups and non-profit organizations will be on-site offering resources for mental health/addiction awareness and support.
Part of Serenity Festival's overall mission is to focus on mental health and wellness for all, including addiction & recovery communities who may feel overlooked in today's musical-event culture. By providing support, information, and social interaction in a drug and alcohol-free space, Serenity Fest aims to show those early in recovery or considering reducing consumption that it is possible to enjoy such an event while sober. In addition to the many festival offerings, Tico Time offers water slides/jumps, paddleboarding, river tubing, zipline, a sky swing, beach volleyball, disc golf, a climbing wall, biking, hiking, and adventure tours for the entire family.
