Event Space and Lodging
ASFC's flexible facility offers people a unique space. Concert, wedding, conference, workshop, camp and other organizers can easily hold their events here. Inexpensive fees provide stimulus for the Center's other programs, which give back to the community in many ways. The gorgeous overlook and flat open spaces provide a backdrop for weddings and concerts that is hard to beat. We also have the Mountain Freedom Stage, that can accommodate a largish type music event and plenty of primitive camping to spare. A chapel, fire circle, picnic shelter as well as a fully equipped commercial kitchen paired with other indoor and outdoor meeting spaces make the options virtually unlimited. For those who do not wish to camp we have rustic dorm type cabins complete with bunks, hot showers and heat that easily sleep 48.
Earth Day Celebration and Other Fun Cultural Events
Every year we partner with other people to hold educational, fun inspiring art and cultural events. Our Earth Day Celebration mixes music, arts and activism as we honor our planet, plant trees and other fruit bearing plants and hear experts talk about various issues surrounding the globe. Mixed in is music and theatrical performances to give attendees a chance to relax and unwind while doing something good for the Earth.
Llynium Entertainment cosponsors the event and also holds their favorite activity of the year each September, Culturefest.
