We're so excited to invite you all, old and new friends alike, to celebrate another incredible year at The Root with us. Cancel your plans for that wedding you were invited to, apologize to your cousin about her Bat Mitzvah you can't go to now, tell your mom she has a birthday every year and you'll be at the next one - because it's time to party with all of your best friends at the best event of the year!
Forget what you know about Limb Snapping: we've spent over half a decade perfecting the art of DIY celebrations and events so that we can prepare ourselves for this one. For the second year in a row, we're filling the weekend from beginning to end with live music, late night DJ sets, art workshops, communal projects, and an escape from the hot smelly summer city to connect with nature and people. We'll have music Friday night and ALL DAY Saturday, along with optional organized activities and tours of the property.
Join us to celebrate over half a decade of growth, friendship, and pleasure. It's the festival that reminds you of what it means to be human and alive in this crazy, beautiful world. This is our Sixth Annual Limb Snapping, and we can't wait to share it together with you all. For more information about bands, transportation/lodging, and all the fun activities we have planned please check out our website: therootcommunity.org/limbsnapping18
The Root Community is located at 336 Anderson Road, Sprakers NY. You'll know us by our big red barn with our logo on the side!
WHAT TO BRING
This is a camping event so please bring a tent, sleeping bag, sneakers / hiking boots, a headlamp, swim suit, towel, and drinking water.
We do not supply drinking water- our well on the property is unable to support the crowd so please plan accordingly. We recommend that each Limb Snapper have one gallon of water per-day. Stay hydrated!
Our event is RAIN or SHINE. Please plan on bringing a rain jacket- it's rained for at least some portion of Limb Snapping every year, so always good to plan on it so it doesn't dampen your spirit! Please bring layers, it may get a little chilly at night. Make sure you're bringing clothes that can get muddy! You'll be outside for the weekend and we don't want you to ruin your favorite running shoes. Also- flip flops can be difficult on our property- we encourage snappers to wear shoes that stick on their feet so you don't lose them on a hill somewhere.
We offer outhouses and porta-potties for our guests for the weekend. They are well maintained and never icky and always have TP., we promise! We do not offer shower facilities to our guests (too many people, unfortunately.) But! We have a wonderful creek in the back of our property that's great to take a dip in to rinse off.
