Easton Mountain is located in the Hudson Valley, New York, in the midst of a beautiful secluded mountain landscape, on 170 acres of private land, with plenty of serene nature, forests, hills, and a beautiful lake at its center. It is a magical place - secluded and quiet, yet only 3 hours from New York City, Boston, and Montreal. Above all, Easton Mountain is a community - a fellowship of people connected to each other and the project - check out Easton Mountain’s website to learn more about their amazing history and programmes.

For the Festival, we will have the entire venue and the surrounding lands for ourselves, and the Easton Mountain and  Tantra4GayMen teams will work together to create a space where you can be free, feel held, have lots of fun exploring Tantra with other loving men.
