Everyone is welcome to join. RSVPs are helpful, which you can do by entering the relevant info below. Upon arriving at Mariposa, use the parking space outside the main facilities to unload and then park your car down by the barn for the duration of your stay. Parking is limited, and road maintenance is costly, so we encourage friends to carpool as much as they can. Check our our visiting page for more info about visiting Mariposa. Attendance is free, but we gratefully welcome to donations to help cover the costs of utilities and facilities wear and tear.
