The Manifestivus is held on 93 acres of breathtaking land in Cabot, Vermont, six hours north of New York City and three hours from Boston or Montreal. Set on a gently rolling hillside meadow surrounded by forest, the timber stage creates an unforgettable vibe which hosts 2000 dancing, smiling, loving faces under the moonlit sky. “Festivus” as it’s been dubbed, was founded by Toubab Krewe bassist David Pransky, and takes place on his family land. The Manifestivus is also managed by Carlo Rovetto of 1lb Productions and Positive Pie.
The family-friendly event offers on-site camping, medical facilities, vendors of authentic African and Ital food, as well as local arts and crafts. The site also boasts hiking trails wind through beaver ponds, marsh and woodland forest, and a large swimming pond. The 200 + children that attend the festival have an entire supervised area devoted to fun, games and culture.
