Desert & Denim

Saturday, June 2, 2018, 2:00 AM

Welcome to the fourth instalment of Desert & Denim, a gathering of artisans, entrepreneurs and idealists in Joshua Tree, California. What: Desert & Denim Where: The Institute of Mentalphysics (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 21+ and pet friendly. 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 open to the public! Now you have no excuse for not coming out to Joshua Tree for this unique experience. Find out first hand what all your friends have been talking about. Make sure you check out our website for more details and event schedule. TICKET PRICE UPDATE: Do to an overwhelming response (we love you guys, too!) we have had to close the free registration and charge a small day pass fee. This is to ensure we are able to provide everyone with the same amazing experience you have come to expect from Desert & Denim. Congratulations to everyone that signed up early! See? We are already making you feel good about yourself, and you haven't even been to the event yet! 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."
