Symbiosis 2015


NPilar Tableware

In a world increasingly divided, defined, and compartmentalized, Symbiosis aspires to unify through a common vision of togetherness by gathering artists, performers, and creators or all sorts to celebrate the vitality of a inspired community in the gorgeous natural landscape of northern California.

The fabric of this vibrant network is woven together from musical, artistic, and theatrical threads along with ideas and concepts meant to support our physical, emotional, and social well-being.

Along with epic dancefloors, organic cuisine, and stunning artistic installations, Symbiosis has a wide array of dynamic speakers and charismatic workshop presenters supporting a fellowship of intelligent, creative, and lively dialogue.

Our vibrant and burgeoning community is almost completely perfect. All we need is YOU!

For a special evening, we offer a 5-course rooftop dining experience.

An immersive culinary experience, where dining is a bustling, boisterous celebration of food and meals are shared, eaten and considered a ceremony of nature, hard work and valued bonds with others, linking the importance of the concept to organic growing methods, sustainable living practices, and environmental awareness and sensibility.

Guests will be transported on an unforgettable journey through a curated, bohemian five-course menu by Captain and Doctor Giggle, performed over an elevated rooftop that offers unobstructed views of the festival.
