When is it over? lol Most people leave about the 5th of July or so. There are people there a month after that though cleaning up. There is no "end date". Just like there is no "start date". You get there when you get there and you leave when you leave.

So I see this info on both here, elsewhere, and on the main Rainbow Family website, so I assume it's correct. Not a week or two ago though, I saw that there was a different location that was in the western part of NC just above Georgia. Did it change? Was the original info I saw wrong? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

The North Carolina directions were for the Spring Council, the meeting just before rainbow begins where people decide where the gathering will be.The Georgia site near Dahlonega is where the gathering is right now.
