PEX Summer Fest will again be held at Ramblewood!

The Philadelphia Experiment is excited to announce the Seventh Annual PEX Summer Festival July 3-6 at Camp Ramblewood in Darlington, Maryland.  PEX Summer Festival is a multifaceted, multi-dimensional music & art celebration! We will be uniting for three days of amazing music, art, education, and participatory, shared experience.


This year, to celebrate and recognize the participants and lifeblood of the entire PEX community, we will be gathering for an intimate collective experience. For this reason, PEX Summer Festival is by invitation only.  


We are honored to have the contributions of such an amazing and multi-talented group of energetic people at our events. YOU have been the reason PEX has been able to do so much with so little. This event is an opportunity for people of all shapes and sizes to come out and show us the beauty of our integrative efforts. We know that every moment of time, every bit of energy, that is contributed will aid in fostering the mission of PEX as we construct experiences that nurture the evolution of the human spirit.

We are sending out a call to YOU, to come and help us make this weekend the best it possibly can be for yourself and the people you love. Giving in and of itself is an act of receiving, and volunteering is an easy and simple access point to feeling the warm embrace of our shared vitality.

We value participation in the creation of this summer festival and encourage you to let us know how you would like to be a part of this event. Applications to participate in activities such as art installations, performances, workshops and theme camps are now open!
