CARRAVANIVERSARY: Headlands 30th Birthday Party

Free Admission | Buy tickets for games, bites, & goodies on-site

12 – 5PM


Celebrating 30 years of supporting art and artists, Headlands invites you to a family-friendly, artist-driven festival in the Fort Barry Parade Ground of the Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Parks. An array of artist projects, games, musical entertainment, bike & surf activities, artist-led hikes, hands-on projects, and local artisan vendor booths will be on-site to delight and engage party-goers of all ages.

Over a dozen artists are commissioned to present interactive contraptions, custom-designed pods, and games at the party. Festival-goers can curl up inside one of Suzanne Husky’s “Sleeper Cells”- pods made of reclaimed construction materials; explore Jay Nelson’s “Surf Transport Vehicle;” use plant-dye to design a custom handkerchief with Helena Keeffe; or take on the challenge of Michael Hall’s “Art Obstacle Course.”

Local artists and merchants lead DIY sessions amongst their pop-up shop offerings of original artwork and artisan wares. Make a mini-succulent garden housed in a mollusk shell with Sausalito’s The Low Tide Club, peruse the unique clothing of San Francisco’s Gravel & Gold; or fall in love with, and go home with, a one-of-a-kind print for sale by Park Life.


Bay Area food and beverage vendors dish-out a variety of edibles and a full line-up of music and entertainment is presented on a custom built “raft-stage” made by artist Nathaniel Parsons. Join us!
