EL COSMETICO

Back and bigger by popular demand. Just because you are camping doesn’t mean you don’t need a massage. Check back soon for advance online booking of your transformative treatments.

Shop our vendor area, hang out and listen to an afternoon DJ, or just spend some time in our hammock grove. We've got a solid mix of activities and opportunities to do absolutely nothing.

Community Dinner

Join us for Barbacoa Cosmicoa, a pig roast and community dinner on Saturday night. Chef Lou Lambert will roast several pigs onsite, and we'll enjoy the feast with all the fixins and a bunch of sides - a vegetarian option is also available. This dinner sells out quickly, so get these tickets while you can. 

GET DINNER TICKETS

Food vendors will be onsite on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, and some breakfast options will be available each day. We will also have an area set up with a few communal grills if you'd prefer to bring your own foodstuffs.

No outside alcohol is allowed at El Cosmico. We will have plenty of beer, wine, and other beverages for sale throughout the event.
