Come join us at New Frontier Ranch!
The New Frontier Ranch (formerly called Box R Ranch) is in the mountains outside of Ashland, OR (near Greensprings on Hwy 66) and is on almost 1,000 lush acres with a swimmable pond that has a water slide!
We encourage Carpooling and if you have 3 or more in your vehicle parking is FREE otherwise, $25 for 2 or less in your vehicle.
We aim to make this a ZERO WASTE event. We follow the policy of PACK-IT-IN and PACK-IT-OUT. Please be respectful on this land, mindful of neighbors on the way in and out, and please, clean up after yourself. Bring your own cups, bowls, and silverware and we will provide a dishwashing station for you to use. Otherwise, you will have the option to “rent” a bowl or plate.
This venue is in the mountains, and there is a very sweet community up there too. It is our goal that our event have ZERO impact on this local community. In order to pull that off, here are some things you need to be aware of:
*This is a NO “in’s and out’s” event. If you choose to leave the event earlier than the conclusion of the event, you must do so before 11:00pm and you can only re-enter if you “re-pay.” We strive to keep everyone at our events safe and the local community happy with their experience of us. That is one reason the property owners have requested the gates to be locked at 11 pm each night. Of course, emergencies are the exception to this.
*Be sure to bring ALL supplies, snacks, and comfort items you will need for the entire weekend.
*Unless you pay extra for a car-camping or RV site, you will not be camping near your car and you will need to pack in your items. It is not a long walk, and there will be some wheelbarrows available to use. A shuttle is available for families with small children, and elderly or handicapped patrons.
*Because fire danger is at EXTREME level, we cannot have fires anywhere on the venue. If we are allowed, we still plan on having one main sacred fire located in the heart of the festival. Smoking is ONLY allowed in the designated smoking section and any person that smokes outside of that area may be asked to leave the event if unwilling to follow these rules. There will NOT be any fire dancing at this event.
The Frontier Ranch is located at 16799 Hwy 66, Ashland, OR 97520. There is a section of the road under construction on Hwy 66 and so there are TWO DETOUR OPTIONS:
Detour Option #1: This is a detour onto Dead Indian Memorial Rd (we call Native Memorial Rd) which is a left turn off Hwy 66 and that is only about 1/2 mile past the I5 freeway offramp. This Detour Option #1 is BEST FOR RVs and LARGE RIGS! This route is gentle easy driving that takes you to a junction where you make a RIGHT TURN where you see the Howard Prarie Lake sign and there will be Route 66 Detour signs as well at a couple MYSTIC SIGNS which are not at large as the Route 66 Detour signs with red color to stand out. This route takes you past the Howard Prarie, Hyatt, before it brings you back to Hwy 66 where you make a LEFT and that is RIGHT AT THE GREENSPRINGS INN. If you look you can see a Mystic Rising sign by the Stop sign. From there, our site (New Frontier Ranch) is about 7 minutes up on your left side and you’ll see signage!
Detour Option #2: There is another route option that you can research (some local folks know it) but we’ve decided not to post that or recommend that hear. We understand it’s going to be closed for an hour on Thursday, Aug 24th anyway. Additionally, it’s not best for RVs or large rigs as there are a few hair pin turns so we decided to simply recommend the safest route shown above.
This year we’re doing another intimate smaller scale event where we’re only selling 550 tickets! With artists like Trevor Hall, Mike Love, Polish Ambassador, David Starfire, Dustin Thomas, Chris Berry and others we’re certain to sell out in advance so we encourage you to get your weekend passes as soon as possible if you’re really wanting to make it this year before we get Soul’d Out! We do not intend to have any day passes this year as the venue wants to limit the amount of traffic impacting the community.

Thursday 10 am-10pm
Tickets at the Gate are $222 plus parking
Children 12 and under attend for FREE.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to camp or is there lodging nearby?
There is no lodging in the immediate vicinity of the gathering, so this is a camping-only event.
There are some tipis and, canvas tents with beds available to reserve via our tickets page.
What should I bring for camping?
This is a camping event so bring all your own camping gear and accessories. If you come with an RV or decide to Car-Camp, there will be a designated area for you to park and stay. There will be healthy food provided for sale, a commercial kitchen, and actual restroom buildings and hand-washing stations. There may not be showers available, so washing in the pond or creek with bio-degradable soap may be your bathing option!
Is there water/food available or should I bring my own?
Bring your own reusable water bottle (or there may be one for sale! ). There will be great food and beverage vendors including raw foods/vegetarian/vegan/ vendors with amazing healthy deserts!
How does parking work?
Parking is in designated areas. RV’s and car-camping are in a reserved section. A nominal parking fee will be requested for each vehicle to “green the event” which will be greatly discounted or free for those who carpool (3 or more people).
Is there security at the event?
Yes, we have our own 24/7 Shanti-Sena security team on-site . However, you are still responsible for securing your own camping areas and we cannot be held responsible for any losses in those areas.
What Not to Bring
There is no selling of beer or alcohol at the gathering and we highly discourage its use. If you have a beer or glass of wine in your tent and are not “walking around with a beer in your hand,” you could probably drink unnoticed, however we highly discourage any intoxication and drunkenness. Our event is endeavoring to encourage us all to find lifestyle choices leading to a joyful life without the need of intoxicants to feel ‘high’ but rather to get ‘high on life’ with yoga, music, breathing, ecstatic dance and so forth.
We discourage the use of drugs of any kind except those prescribed by a doctor.
There are no dogs or animals permitted at the event.
