BodyFest 2018 California
Free your body and mind through music, art, dance, performances, photography, games, and contests. Stay in one of the comfortable yurts, pitch a tent or just come for the day. Saturday activities peak with the afternoon Nude Olympics where everyone competes in fun and easy games and challenges. Then later that day slow down with body painting, mud painting, water games, massage, or just hanging out! While at Lupin Lodge enjoy the hot tub, swimming pool, courts, trails, and restaurant.

There is NO Photography happening this year except maybe optional group photo.

There are several yurt structures, some for indoor events and other small ones for private accommodation. Other facilities: pleasant restrooms, showers, hot tub, pool, tennis courts, restaurant, group kitchen, lawn, patio, nature trails…directions
Lupin lodge is a 10 minute drive south of San Jose, a 25 minute drive north of Santa Cruz.

Workshops: Body-awareness, yoga, music, contact dance, meditation, massage. Creativity: body-painting, nature-costumes, body-sculptures, giant bubbles. Contests: races, tug-of-war, wrestling, jumping. schedule
Friday – Attendee’s may opt to arrive on this day to set up their camping spot. An evening dinner and event will be planned for anyone who has arrived at this point. Saturday Activities will start early in the morning and continue non-stop through the day including the evening. If you want to be part of the full Bodyfest experience, camp another night so you can stay up late. Sunday morning there may be a yoga class or something similar, but not much else is planned for Sunday this year.
This year (2018) there is no separate Naked Club admission fee. The fees are through Lupin check-in and are close to the normal costs of visiting Lupin. Follow the “Event Website” link for more info.
