As we’re wrapping up the last of our holiday order packing here at Little Hippie, I am taking a moment to reflect on the past year.

Being in prime form is optimal for maximizing your festival experience. The reality of festival survival is quite different from the typical attendee’s daily routine. The conditions can be much more rustic and challenging and it takes some skill and preparedness to make the best of the experience. We are here to help you not only survive, but thoroughly enjoy your summer escapades. In a world now waking up to the concept of “glamping”, Little Hippie thinks we can clock in somewhere in the middle: thriving.

We talk a lot about San Francisco and the West Coast being the origin place for American counterculture and the hippie lifestyle because, well, it is, … Read More
Here at Little Hippie we’ve been on a mission to dive into the origin story and evolution of the hippie – where did this culture come from, what does it mean and what are the values of that we’re passing onto our little hippies?
