Greenbelt is an arts, faith and justice festival with a long and rich history. We’ve been going since 1974, over 46 consecutive festivals. Without a break.
We were founded a long time ago by a bunch of misfits in a field. We’re still in a field. And we’re still somewhere that welcomes anyone and everyone. Particularly those of us who don’t belong anywhere else.
We’re somewhere artistry meets activism, where politics meets positivity. We’re somewhere to come together once a year, where we’re just as likely to dream up a better world as we are to dance and debate, to pray and to party.We’re somewhere to be amazed and inspired.
We’re somewhere the sacred meets the secular. We think there’s a spark that kindles the time we spend together at Greenbelt. We call it God. You might call it the gin talking, and that’s fine. We welcome all faiths and none: the only thing you have to believe in is the difference we can make together.
We’re somewhere it’s OK to ask questions, because we think that’s where all the interesting stuff happens. We certainly don’t pretend to have all the answers.
We’re somewhere to belong. We’re part festival, part family. Some of us have been coming our whole lives. Some of us are coming back after a break, and some of us are new to the party. Whether it’s your first time or your 15th, you can expect a warm welcome.
