Together we can keep the campgrounds quiet and sustainable

The Old Settler’s vibe is the backdrop of an EXCEPTIONAL, UNFORGETTABLE CAMPING EXPERIENCE. Preserving the enchanting and peaceful vibe of the campgrounds is a priority for all of us.

To preserve our vibe, ELIMINATE THE USE OF DIESEL GENERATORS, and distribute affordable, clean, renewable power throughout the campgrounds, Old Settler’s announces Silence the Generators, a capital campaign focused on installing a permanent electrical infrastructure at our forever home. To accomplish this, we need your help to raise $200,000. Please know that every donation, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated and will help the festival become more environmentally responsible.

Last year, the SECOND LARGEST EXPENSE associated with the festival was campground generators, making it unsustainable financially to continue their use. Relying on renting diesel generators to power up the campgrounds is not only unsustainable financially, it’s unsustainable environmentally. Eliminating the use of campground generators will prevent 60 tons of CO2 emissions from being produced each festival from the burning of 6,000 gallons of diesel fuel and will be a powerful first step in reducing our carbon-footprint.

The plan is to INSTALL AN ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE, then go green by purchasing renewable power. The underground distribution throughout

the campgrounds will supply 20, 30, and 50amp service to campsites and power up the Campground Stage and the vendor area along the main road. Let’s make it possible to power up the campgrounds with clean, renewable energy in time for the 2020 festival.

NOW IS THE TIME TO HELP and as the saying goes, “It takes a village!” We need our friends and family to come together to preserve our campground vibe; a vibe unmatched in central Texas, the state and the nation. Let’s share some OSMF spirit and love to succeed in meeting our campaign goal of $200,000.
