Fermentation Fest 2023 took place October 7-8, 2023 at Witwen Park with a celebration of live culture in all its forms. For this special Spirits Edition, Wormfarm drew on the site’s history as a former church campground, as well as excitement for its potential for ongoing rural revival.

Fermentation Fest 2023 was organized by Wormfarm Institute in collaboration with regional partners including the Savanna Institute, Little Eagle Arts Foundation, McFarlanes’, Cricket Design Works, Edible Madison, and Rural Urban FLOW, Farmer Angel Network, and Bug Tussel Wireless. This project was made possible in part through grants from Ruth Foundation for the Arts, The Educational Foundation of America, Builders Initiative, and New Pluralists: Healing Starts Here. A special thank you to the Sprecher family.
