Founded in 2015 on the principles of self-reliance and non-aggression, AnarCon is a celebration of liberty, self-expression, and sharing of knowledge. It's a place to connect with like-minded individuals, share skills, maybe learn something new, and have a lot of fun along the way.

So grab your camping gear, bathing suits, favorite guns, and your best road trip buddy, and join us in celebrating AnarCon's 8th year in 2022!

Admission

Admission fee for AnarCon at The Cove Campground is $50, an exclusive special rate for 3 days of festivities and a savings of $25 from general admission (put it towards crypto!). No reservations are needed for camping.

Family & Community Friendly

AnarCon is a family and pet friendly event. As such, please be mindful of others. We also practice Leave No Trace and host a clean-up session on Sunday before visiting the target range. Let’s leave the campground the same way we found it!

Get involved!

Agorists, Artists, and Educators Welcome!

Agora

Anyone is welcome to set up a booth or table and bring your wares. There are no vendor fees! If you're interested in participating, please email us information regarding your business or wares so we can add you to the vendor list.

Speakers & Storytellers

Have something to say? We'll get you the mic! If you're an artist and would like to share your talents, we'd love to hear from you. Whether you spin fire, play music, dance, or perform spoken word, please email us so we can add you to our program.

Teachers & Guides

If you'd like to put together a workshop, teach a class, or share a skill, we'd love to provide space and time for you to present. Please email us with information regarding your presentation.

Honey Badger Bonfire

The honey badger is our mascot, and rightfully so! Every year we come together build a massive bon fire in the shape of our honey badger. Building the badger is a group process and anyone can pitch in. Look for Burn Captain, Michael, for instructions on where to start building and how to safely contribute. Bring something to burn or come ready to help build.

Liberty

We are welcoming to anyone who values the Non-Aggression Principle, property rights, and working towards personal discovery.

Self-reliance

We encourage personal growth through learning and honing new skills.

Community

Be a part of a growing tribe who value autonomy and cooperation.

Range Day

Target Range

Remember when we said to bring your guns? We weren't kidding! On Saturday we roll out as a group to practice the art of self-defense. Arms Master Kurt will meet with everyone beforehand to provide a firearms safety course, shooting tips, and lessons to newbies. So if you've never fired a gun before this is the perfect place and opportunity with friends to learn how.

Planning Ahead

Armed to the teeth with knowledge of gunsmithing, Kurt is also the person to go to if you're interested in building your own gun. If you'd like to connect with him to get your gun built before anarcon, or even just to get advice on your planned build, please email us! If you're ready to roll, be sure to bring lots of ammunition, ear protection, water, and sunscreen!
