Membership with the Primitive Festival Alliance

The Primitive Festival Alliance is a non-profit entity incorporated in 1992 that supports and sponsors an annual retreat, drum jams, classes random acts of kindness and community building in the South Sound Area.  

In order to support these activities, we are offer a membership with the PFA. Attendance at most sponsored events are limited to Members only, or by invitation. 

Our annual retreat and reunion is Summerstar which also requires pre-registration. 

An E-Newsletter, the PFA Gazette is our informational arm and is mailed monthly.  It contains information about planned activities, get-togethers (like a cooking club, “kid-star”- a weekend by and for kids only), and how you can join the PFA as a member.

Membership is open to adults only (18 years) and is  $50 per year/ per adult.  Children are free (17 years and younger) and are included in membership as long as they physically reside with the adult member. There are no tribe or group rates. 

All PFA events are private and each adult must be an active member in order to attend any event.  Guests of the Cadre of Seven are the only exception.  Membership dues are paid annually and the window to join is open from 8/1 to 7/4.
