History: In 2018, the project embarked on its 19-year plan to establish Freedom Haven: a politically independent floating port city on the ocean outside the jurisdiction of existing nations (according to the treaties those nations have signed) with the highest level of socio-economic freedom found on the planet. We’re currently in phase 2 (an exploratory campaign to prove its economic viability) out of a total of 4 phases. Phase 4 should be completed by 2034, and the city should be built and up and running by 2037.
Note: The ambitious 19-year-long Freedom Haven project’s goal is to bring the highest levels of freedom in the world to thousands of people who seek it. We are currently in Phase 2 of 4 total phases. Phase 2 is the exploratory campaign where we seek to prove that there’s enough support of the idea to move forward with the project. Our goal is to find 4,000 people who donate $5 towards the marketing of this project.

Activities: So many of us love the hustle and bustle, the parties, the amazing range of conversation and events and classes that can be had at Porcfest. Some of us also need a little quiet time. This lounge is a space for introverts (or other sensory sensitive people) of all ages to just hang out in a comfortable, quiet space. We will have pillows, blankets, seating (or you can bring your own).
+ Daylight hours only. Family-friendly activity only – please no drugs. This space will not always be supervised – children are welcome, at the level of supervision you are comfortable with, but we aren’t equipped to watch over them.
+ Please don’t steal the stuff in Introvert’s Corner. Please keep it clean — this isn’t a place to eat, but you can bring a water bottle with a lid.
+ A bit of quiet conversation is ok, but if you really get into a conversation with a fellow introvert, please go for a walk! The purpose of this lounge is to provide a sensory-friendly space to rest. While we can’t control the noise around us, we can have a little oasis if we cooperate to make it so.
History: Last year (XIX), Karen set up a tarp, some pillows, and a little sign, but no one came. Let’s see if this year, introverts can unite in our own (quieter) celebration of liberty. As someone who is sensory-sensitive, it’s nice to go have a place to rest away from noise, and she wants to offer this service to others. She also heard from some people that their spouse would come if there was a place to retreat to when they get overloaded. Some families may have autistic kids who would benefit from an additional, sensory-friendly space.

‘The best showers at Porc Fest’
Edward Dehm (David Garlock)
For Whom: Anyone interested in hot clean showers
Activities: Porc Showers offers hot, clean, spacious daily showers for the most refreshing experience at Porc Fest.
History: Roger’s is a great location, but Proc Fest has grown beyond the capacity of the campground’s water facilities. We wanted to improve Porc Fest, by bringing our own facilities that offer offering spacious, clean, refreshing, and hot showers.
. . . This is our third year bringing hot showers to PorcFest and we’re excited to improve our offerings and lower our prices this year.

The Fox Den [Service]
‘A soft place to crash’
For Whom: – Attendees coming from afar who want the full, on-site Porcfest experience, but aren’t able to travel with camping gear.
– Day trippers having such a good time they wish they could stay an extra night or two or three…
Activities: – 2 or 4 person tent complete with air mattress, sleeping bag, and camping pillow—available by the night or whole week.
– Access to Starlink
– Charging station for your electronic devices
– Snacks and convenience items available for purchase
– Extra blankets available upon request for those cold Porcfest nights
History: Porcfest 2021 was the first sold out PF and lots of people were scrambling last minute for places to stay. I had an RV spot to myself and tons of extra camping gear, so I figured why not fill a need in the market and make PF accessible to some attendees who would not have been able to come otherwise.

Sarah’s Homeopathy Hub [Service]
‘Ask the Anarcho-Homeopath!’
For Whom: Anyone who wants better health or natural solutions for acute ailments!
Activities: Homeopath with professional practice offering on the spot support for acute ailments (illness and injury) and consultations on longer-term, chronic issues. It’s free to come ask questions and learn more!
History: Growing up in Concord, NH, with libertarian values, I didn’t know any other libertarians (except for my parents). Becoming a homeopath after healing from leukemia, I found that, while the philosophy behind the work itself was consistent with my freedom-focused values, the culture around natural medicine was mired in mushy statism and warmed-over socialism. Meanwhile, the libertarian world was hostile to non-allopathic approaches. Where-ever I went, I felt like some aspect of my worldview was treated as mental illness! Over the past several years, I have endeavored to bring these two passions of mine together to demonstrate that principle-driven and freedom-oriented healing is effective and life-changing. Anarchists, voluntaryists, libertarians; I am here to offer individualized care AND not treat you like you are crazy!
‘Acupuncture for Porcupines’
Carla San Diego, L.Ac.
For Whom: Anyone curious
Activities: Come by to ask questions, share & learn more about Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine. Experience this ancient holistic approach to health & wellness that continues to become more relevant to our modern healthcare system.

$20 – Mini session w/ auricular (ear) acupuncture (20 mins)
msg: (603) 684-2413
History: I started my career path with 15 years in the NYC fashion industry until the stress led to health issues that drove me to seek help beyond conventional medicine. That’s when I discovered Acupuncture and began to appreciate Chinese Medicine’s holistic view of health and healing. Four years of graduate school later, I earned a Master of Science to become licensed, board-certified and practicing acupuncture and herbal medicine for the past decade. My approach combines Traditional Chinese Medicine, modern orthopedics and clinical nutrition to balance the body’s energy, anatomy and chemistry as one. This is my first year in NH and at Porcfest so I’m excited to share my practice with other Porcs, learn new stuff and hopefully help a few people feel better.
Note: Sessions are in a clean, semi private tent surrounded by the fresh air of freedom.
Silk Road [Service]
‘A Short Cut Across the Hill’
For Whom: Attendees who want to get from one hub to another, across campsite islands, without trespassing on campers’ sites.
Activities: Stretching across the hill, the Silk Road allows attendees to cut across the hill without trespassing. Campers in these sites set aside a 4′ walkway that attendees may use as a short-cut to other islands. Campers usually enhance the Silk Road by vending or lights or other enticements.
The Silk Road honors Ross Ulrich political prisoner of DC.
RV sites: 21; 35; 49; 62; 77; 98; 120; 142; 165; 185; 205; 230; 281.
History: The Silk Road, conceived and implemented by Dennis in 2021, permitted attendees to cut across specific campsites with pre-approved permission to more easily access the newly created hub network spread across the campground. PorcFest has annually honored Ross Ulrich the founder of the Silk Road, who languishes as a political prisoner for daring to start the first truly free market outside government control and government fiat.
Note: Also visit Wiki-Leak (“LEAK”), our tribute to Wikileaks political prisoner Julian Assange
‘Take a Wiki-Leak’
For Whom: Offering basic reality
Activities: The main bathroom, across from T16, has been named “Wiki-Leak” to remind us that Julian Assange remains a political prisoner for exposing the murderous corruption of our rulers.
History: Wikileaks published news leaks and classified media provided by anonymous sources about government perfidies. Governments trumped up charges, and used its owned/controlled media to attack it. Julian Assange has been cornered, arrested, tortured, and his mind ruined for the sin of exposing truth about our masters.
Note: Also travel along the Silk Road in honor of Ross Ulrich
