ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
A RURAL CULTURAL EXPERIENCE
Pilobolus performances, world class concerts, interactive art, locally sourced and crafted food, creative conversation with artists, and natural beauty – 90 minutes from NYC, in Pilobolus’s home in the Connecticut woods.
CELEBRATING NATURE AND THE BODY
The Pilobolus Five Senses Ball, on Saturday, July 20, provides funding that ensures festival events are low-cost or free to the community.
IN REAL TIME
Three weekends (July 21, July 26–28, & August 2-4) are alive from morning till night with multi-arts programs for all ages.
The Five Senses Festival invites artists, musicians, chefs, dancers, and you to spend time together in a beautiful place, surrounded by beautiful art, eating , playing, relaxing, listening, looking, smelling the air, feeling the breeze, and celebrating reconnection.
THROUGH LIVE CONNECTION
The Festival collaborates with community partners such as the Washington Art Association, the Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens, ASAP!, Steep Rock Association, Valley Spirit Wellness Center, and many more nonprofits and businesses – offering co-programming around town.
