MPLF Purpose

  1. The “An-Fam Reunion” – annual get-together of core friends from MPLC and founding attendees
  2. A neutral location to vet individuals for intentional community building
  3. A place to network and make new friends that are ‘like-hearted’

  4. To help foster and support individuals seeking freedom in an unfree world

Cultivating Liberty Since 2013

The Midwest Peace & Liberty Festival was started in 2013 as a weekend camping trip for a group of friends with similar beliefs surrounding the desire for a truly free society. Turns out, there are far more people with the same desire in and around the midwest, and thus the annual event was officially born.
