The Frendly Gathering originated as a way to bring Frends from all over the world to one place to share a deep love for music, snowboarding and the outdoors. Historically we used our sport and collective ethos to unite a diverse group of athletes. Within just a few years it became clear that this Frendly movement was meant to transform the lives of people around the world. What started as a 250 person mini-gathering put on by The Frends Crew, has now evolved into a three-day grassroots music festival and a dream come true for us.
At The Frendly Gathering, we want our guests to leave the real world behind, enjoy the fruits of nature, listen to music and enjoy the company of Frends, new and old.
We believe in cultivating lasting friendships that in turn foster collaborative success and stand to rid future generations of exclusivity.
We want to help create a “We” generation that is selfless enough to overcome the “Me” mentality.
We strive to create a lasting environment that is built upon kindness, generosity, and respect.
10 ANCHORS OF FRENDSHIP
When we began building the Frendly Gathering we wanted to create an experience that reflected our world and all of the adventures that we encountered on the road while snowboarding. What we realized is that while the places we visited and the people we met were always changing, the one thing that was consistent was the way we showed up for each other as Frends. Whether it was at the top of the half pipe or on the podium, what made it special was who we were sharing those experiences with. From this, we decided that 10 core values that united us as Frends, should also guide the experience at our festival. We hope that you'll take time to reflect on how these anchors show up in your relationships and to use them not only while you're visiting us at the festival, but also to take them into your daily life and endeavors.
