One of the main landmarks or symbols of Sunset Campout in Belden Town is its bridge. A bridge that serves as a connection to carry us between worlds; the world we leave behind to a fantastical world that we create for our weekend to gather and frolic in the woods together. This year when we cross over the bridge to leave our daily lives behind, we will embark upon an artistic journey of surrealism. Surrealism’s aim is to produce imagery that resolves the contradictory perceptions of dream and reality.

Our theme for 2017, A Surrealist Forest Fantasy, is inspired by artist Salvador Dali and his iconic party, A Night in a Surrealist Forest, where people were entertained by a collection of bizarre adventures in subconscious exploration. For our weekend in the majestic woods, be encouraged to allow your imagination to flow where it will, embracing your subconscious in all its weirdness, finding joy in random, strange juxtapositions and aesthetic combinations. In your artistic expression and creations, let your reality be warped and melded with lucidity of a colorful dream state.

The theme is not meant to be literal guide. It's intension is purely to trigger an abstract mental imagery or a feeling one can draw upon for inspiration that will connect us all for our amazing annual reunion in the woods.


As well as an amazing line-up of DJs and musicians, there will be an array of talented visual artists creating interactive installations, visual stimuli, live painting, murals and other eye candy. In the evenings there'll be daily live performances at the circus stage featuring Golden Gate Dolls and other live acts. The Faerie Ring will again be providing yoga, workshops, meditation and healing ceremonies. When you need to take a break from dancing and rest your weary feet, sign up for a massage at the Sunset Rejuvenation Spa or check out some of the amazing chill lounges and immersive experiences we have to offer. And of course if you are bringing your littles, don't forget to bring them over to Pixie kids town for daily activities and water play. More information on all of these coming soon.....
