Desert & Denim

Friday, June 1, 2018, 7:00 PM

Welcome to the fourth instalment of Desert & Denim, a gathering of artisans, entrepreneurs and idealists in Joshua Tree, California. What: Desert & Denim Where: The Center for Mental Physics (aka The Joshua Tree Retreat Center), Joshua Tree, CA When: Friday, June 1st - Sunday, June 3rd Why: Because we all need a place to cut loose, have fun, meet new friends, discover amazing artists, designers and brands, share ideas, collaborate, turn on, tune in, and drop out. That place is Desert & Denim. Desert & Denim is open all ages and pet friendly. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Furry friends must be leashed at all times. Last year, for the first time, we opened up one day of Desert & Denim to the public. We had such an overwhelmingly positive response that we are doubling down in 2018: the entire weekend is free and open to the public! Now you have no excuse for not coming out to Joshua Tree for this unique experience. Find out first handwhat all your friends have been talking about. Ticket Price: Admission is FREE! (Though we do ask that you make a small donation to the Mojave Desert Land Trust) By registering in advance you will be entered to win cool stuff from our partners and sponsors, and who doesn’t like free schwag? You will also skip having to register at the gate. Why waste your time waiting in line? Register now to receive updates about onsite events, musical performers, special deals, contests and more. Why aren’t you charging admission? What’s the catch? Oh, don’t get us wrong, we want your money! We just want you to spend it with all our amazing partners. Desert & Denim has always been about promoting our incredibly talented community. Show them some love. If you hate capitalism, you can try the barter system or BitCoin, but we don't guarantee those will work. What is the Mojave Desert Land Trust? From their website: "MDLT has conserved more than 70,000 acres of prime desert habitat, forever weaving together National Parks, wilderness areas, and wildlife linkage corridors. The organization works closely with a broad range of desert community members and visitors, as well as with local, state, and federal agencies. MDLT offers hands-on learning and volunteer opportunities to residents and visitors of the desert. It collaborates closely with, and is supported by, a diverse range of partner organizations, agencies, neighbors, and visitors who treasure the desert’s unique qualities."

Lay out your blanket, grab some popcorn and a can of wine, and wind down the weekend watching a movie under the starry High Desert sky. CAMPING Need a place to stay? Own a tent? Then you’re all set!
