Now in its fourth year, the Simply Summer Music Festival is one of many community events and programs hosted by Tickletown Trust and Trade. Perhaps best known for its monthly full moon potlucks, Tickletown is a Conscious Living Center of Gadrian NPC open to all community members with an interest in building a vibrant, living, sustainable, local economy. Built and operated for many years as a general store, Tickletown has evolved into an education center and community gathering place. Educational workshop and discussion topics include permaculture design, renewable energy, organic gardening, and food preservation, among others.

Tickletown also serves as a venue for local artisans to sell their work. All items sold at Tickletown’s Super Localmart are handcrafted, eco-friendly, locally made wares, including local textiles and fiber, quilts, soaps, salves, candles, books, baskets, wooden bowls and more.
