About This Event

An All-Out Celebration of Health, Fruit-Based Diet, and Personal Growth bringing together a remarkable group of raw vegan and natural health experts, yoga and meditation teachers, fitness instructors, athletes, and creative artists for transformational immersions during week-long annual retreats.

Nowhere else have I allowed myself to be so tender, open, vulnerable, present, loving, accepting of my true self and others. This allowing is an art that has helped me become more aligned with my authentic self and purpose. I am beyond grateful.

Venue Highlights

The Woodstock Fruit Festival takes place at Camp Walden located on crystal clear Trout Lake in the serenity of Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York.


Camp Walden is a children’s summer camp and most of its accommodations options are Shared Bunk Cabins and Tent Camping Area.

Shared Cabins have been recently renovated, featuring new wooden bed frames, comfortable new mattresses, ceiling fans, large windows, and new bathrooms. Cabins capacity ranges between 4 and 9. Shared Cabins are subdivided into the following types: All Women Cabins, All Men Cabins, Co-ed Cabins (for couples and friends), and Family Cabins (for participants with children).
We also have a limited number of Single and Double Private Rooms available for reservations.

Alternatively, you could rent some offsite accommodations nearby. If you decide to stay off site, your admission cost will be the same as Camping Rates. Please note that no transportation to or from offsite accommodations can be provided; you will need your own transportation to get to and from Camp Walden each day.


Amazing Quality Fruit:
Every year we hunt for the world's most exquisite fruit to create a week of enchanting discovery and adventure!
You might fall under the spell of sugary sweet watermelon, experience the explosive zest of freshly squeezed orange juice, indulge in juicy mangoes or buttery papayas, discover mamey sapote, longans and lychees, taste the exotic magic of dragon fruit and mangosteen, or maybe even become a fan of the legendary durian!

And Nourishing Salads:
When you feed your physical body fresh, wholesome, nutrient dense foods, your mental, emotional, and spiritual states come into an effortless balance.
We invite you to be the author of your own bowl using any combination of the organic crispy lettuces, heirloom tomatoes, zucchini noodles, fresh herbs, sweet corn, and other veggies, complemented by your choice of an enticing salad dressing from the colorful palette available at the Woodstock Fruit Festival salad bar!

You may also fly into any of the major New York City airports and take the Amtrak train from New York City to Albany departing from Pennsylvania Station (NYP) which is located between 31st Street and 33rd Street in Midtown Manhattan.
