It's time to get spicy.
Get ready for it…
Campfires and hayrides.
Unlimited pumpkin spice.
Oh my gourd happy hour.
Spicy fall craft workshops.
Your new fall beanie.
All the flannel you can handle.
Maybe you were at Summer Camp and you miss it already. Maybe you haven’t even heard of us before but you were googling unlimited pumpkin spice lattes as you witnessed your first orange leaf falling onto the pavement. Maybe you just realized you need more in your life and your #journey led you to this moment.
Well we say you grab that moment by its big ass fictitious flannel arm and get it to jump on a hayride with you while you sit down next to some badass local maker and learn some mad skillz to take into the winter time or to make your family flip their lids as your handmade holiday gift giving game goes next level.
And, yes, we’ll say the word grateful at some point because it’ll almost be November and why not start off the holiday season already in that mindfulness AF time.
2022 Fall Retreat
People, it’s time to GET SPICY. Make that harvest time a gathering of all of autumn’s best things Unglued-style and spiked with some whiskey and you’ll be ready for hot girl fall – or lumberjack autumn – dealer’s choice.
So here we are in our buffalo plaid flannels, mom jeans, neck bandanas, and ready to cheers with our pumpkin spice coffees to let it be known that our next Unglued Fall Retreat is Sat, Oct 22, 2022 at Crooked Lane Farm in Colfax, ND. Registration to spice up your life opens Sept 20 at 8pm CST HERE (this link will not work until 8pm Sept 20).
“It felt like a mini-vacation, which I realized that I really needed. Spending the day only worrying about making and creating while eating really good food and being surrounded by really great people refilled my cup in a way that I didn't expect.” – Past Attendee
As per the usual we like to try to clear up what this is NOT first: This is not networky, although we’ll have a schedule where you might just get to meet your new ride or die while you take on new leatherworking skills or maybe ride a hayride to a winery. This is not the rager of Summer Camp, although you'll get to enjoy Langston's curated cocktail bar just for you (with, yes, delicious mocktail options). And FALL. This is not a scrapbooking retreat, although you will get to create crafty memories for your next favorite instagram hashtag #fallretreatyourself. This is not like any Fall Retreat you’ve done before – it’s even better and even spicier. And guess what? It’s not just for women as we’ve got guys with beards and guys who still can’t grow beards planning up this shindig to be for all the people.
What is Unglued: Fall Retreat? A cozy, crafty, lumberjacky retreat your crunchy leaf loving heart desires in Colfax, ND. Picture pulling up to your farm life fantasy with big ol’ shiplapped red buildings and twinkly lights surrounded by sprawling farm land and a friggin’ neighboring vineyard, riding a hayride to said neighboring vineyard for a wine tasting, taking a blacksmithing or barn quilt craft workshop for the first time in your life, feasting on a fall desserts after your delightful comfort soup lunch as you coax farm dog Maxine to be your buddy, all while you cheers with a hot cider next to a sparkling campfire as you make a Wondermade s'mores with your new best friend where the lumberjack vibes are going hard as hell.
Joanna and Chip Gaines couldn’t even handle this fall dream realized.
Your $190 Fall Retreat ticket will include:
3 workshop sessions – 3 you sign up for with local makers around October 6 + bonus DIYs.
2 meals + welcome breaky snacks – like RANDY'S DINER COFFEE CAKE (with pumpkin spice whip), fall soup/sandwich lunch deliciousness (with pumpkin spice), pasta dinner by Olive Garden (this is real and yes it's basic as hell and you will love it). DESSERT(S)...and pumpkin spice.
SNACKS – #hangry isn’t a possibility at these things we do so giddy up for a Midwestern coffee hour and fixin's throughout the day. Like a fall-perfection trail mix bar.
Hot drink bar – we’ll keep the chill of fall at bay with unlimited refills of coffee and hot cider to keep your hands and heart happy and hot and wholesome.
5 drink tickets for use at our curated Langston cocktail/mocktail & Drekker beer bar open at select retreat times such as your Halloween Pre-Ween Happy Hour.
Hayrides & campfires.
All Retreat Evening Fall Painting post-dinner with Catie Miller. Spoiler alert: it will be fall moths.
Your new favorite fall beanie. With option to make a bomb ass pom during the Retreat.
(our favorite part)
When is it?
Your treat of Unglued Fall Retreat is Saturday, October 22, 2022 9am-9pm CST. Some retreaters hit the hay earlier - it's your choice, but there is a v spicy evening schedule should your hayride heart desire.
Yes and you can handle it. It’s a 30 minute drive south of Fargo in a magical neck of the woods.
Should I come?
How do I sign up for my spicy seat?
Registration opens Tues, Sept 20 at 8pm CST HERE (this link will not work until 8pm Sept 20). Register prior to workshops opening around Oct 6 to choose your own craftastic workshop schedule.
Where do I stay?
Wherever you friggin’ want! There are not many immediate lodging options in this Colfax area. The shindig fun is one day and crafted up so you don’t have to wake up totally too early on a Saturday and it concludes at 9pm (or if you want to call it good after dinner or whenever, really). We all plan to get back to Fargo that night to our dogs and babies, but if you are coming from out of town there are plenty o’ amazing Fargo Airbnbs available should this include some out-of-town-travel fun for you and the bestie. Last Winter Retreat time we offered for you to crash on our couch with our heel bitin’ rescue pup and now there’s a 3 legged other pup who will awkwardly make out with your face so it’s still an option if you are totally desperate and need a make out buddy. With 3 legs.
Nearly everything except Maxine the Crooked Lane Farm wonder dog. She likes it there so can’t come home with you. There is a chance if you sign up for the wine tasting workshop that you’ll wanna buy a glass of wine at Dakota Vines to enjoy or a bottle to take home or a few craft workshops have the option to buy the specific tool for life, but, you guys, this is an Unglued Retreat so besides those this is all-inclusive. Let’s recap: you’ll #fallretreatyourself with 3 badass workshop sessions taught by local makers and artists, 2 full meals, breakfast coffee cake, 5 drink tickets, unlimited pumpkin spice, new besties, a sweet ass custom beanie, campfires, hayrides, happy hour, evening all retreat painting sesh, and all this planned for you by our Unglued crew. With caramel apple nachos.
Try to get a better bang for your hard earned bucks that will keep you smokin’ hot the rest of the year. Your trip you have to plan yourself to Minneapolis for one night costs twice as much and you won’t be nearly as SPICY.
Tell me about the alcohol sitch:
5 drink tickets are included in your lumberjacky registration. The curated Langston cocktail & beer bar will be open at select times beginning around 3pm and from dinner to last call during evening painting. Last call will be at 8:30pm because this sh*t is 30 minutes south of Fargo and we care about you. There *may* be some bonus opportunities like your winery workshop or your fancy mixology workshop sesh. Not interested in cocktails? Well it just so happens Langston will be creating a menu with options for handcrafted mocktails to enjoy as well so we all win. *You must be 21+ to attend Fall Retreat.*
Is this just for the ladies?
HELLS TO THE NO. We cannot emphasize enough (although I know your boy toy won’t believe it until he sees it) that we craft this retreat and our Summer Camp to be for ALL THE PEOPLE. Not just “crafty” people…not just pinterest-ers…not just formal makers…not just basic b*tches. It’s for YOU. It’s for HIM. It’s for THEM.
Will I like the schedule?
Yes. You guys. We plan all events be something we’d actually want to attend and be a part of. After you get your plaid flannels and mom pants on – hopefully also a turtle neck please – you’ll get to Crooked Lane Farm to check in between 9-9:30am where you’ll enjoy a luscious breakfast coffee cake and coffee. You’ll spend a super chill day making epic crafts and an afternoon Happy Hour to include some choose-your-own-adventure fun free time (but full of options just how we like it). After dinner around 7pm it’ll be your evening hang time with campfires & s'mores and an all retreat painting sesh with fan fave Catie Miller all fall-inspired.
I’m coming from out of town so what do I do?
Well first you sign up when registration opens Sept 20 8pm CST HERE. Then you decide if you want to look at air bnb options, hotels (we kind of live on the edge with Hotel Tonight when we travel), or with these guys. Then you get ready for the Saturday your autumn soul needs in good ol’ North Dakota (just practice your uff das).
Are the crafts crafty?
If by crafty you mean Nick Offerman and mythical Leslie Knope would approve then YES. I mean, we should just be hosting Making It here by now. Fargo (and said surrounding areas) is crazy overflowing with creative makers and artists that are next level excited at the prospect of teaching you.
Will there be new crafty options? I've #retreatedmyself before!
Oh hiiiii YES. Some Retreat things will keep some tradition - like the overall schedules and then for workshops some of the super fall perfection or hottie hot workshops will be back, too, by popular demand since you can't take all 30+ workshops yourself in the 3 sessions when you attend. Overall, though, you’ll have a brand spankin’ new collection of workshops to take along with new happy hour vibes, new swag (beanie!), new cocktails, new evening fun, and definitely a new costume for McKaila.
Can I really come alone?
YES and we will be buddies. We create this full spicy fall day and our organized-yet-chill-AF schedule to work for people who might be on their own Retreat day and have that post-college-not-sure-I-can-meet-new-people vibes like we do. You’ll have plenty of options to keep busy or chill out and sip your pumpkin spice creamer coffee as well as meet some kick ass new people to have in your #lyfe.
Is this just like your summer camp?
Well there’s no sandy beaches on the Farm and there also aren’t crappy bunk beds. We get to craft up this glittery beauty of a day with our crew and the Farm so your breakfast will be carb loaded thanks to local bakeries, your lunch by our crew, and dinner by a caterer and our draaaanks coming from our curated fall cocktail & Drekker beer bar. Picture it like a retreat inspired by Summer Camp and Winter Retreat but in late fall, as a lumberjack, in Colfax, ND, and with badass workshops and capped off with a lumberjack dance. We know it’s what you need as you begin to wind down 2022 and dive into the “treat every day like Christmas time.”
Is there a half day option?
Not this year! Last year we had 1 total retreater take advantage of this and so we are phasing this out. However, if you are like WTF and really need this you can always email us and we will definitely take this into account for future retreats if there's enough crafty demand!
Do I need to register right away?
Benefits to registering right away on Sept 20 at 8pm: you get to attend Fall Retreat and hang out with us. Also signing up for workshop sessions when they open around October 6. We are opening this up for you to buy up to 4 tickets to share with your squad at a time, but will need the names of your other ticket holders officially by October 5 before workshop info and specialized deets begin.
What if I decide I can’t go but I bought a ticket or there’s the storm of the century that weekend?
Your Fall Retreat ticket is fully refundable for just a short time since it’s like basically tomorrow – so it’s refundable until October 4, 2022. After that it is no longer refundable – even for insane weather – UNLESS IT IS COVID RELATED as we will have had you register for your own shiny workshop sessions and we personalize things because we really like this stuff and you. You could transfer your ticket to someone else, though, but they may be stuck with your fantastic workshop schedule and, well, maybe even your nametag. But also since this is a pandemic, if you need to cancel for Covid-related reasons we will send you a full refund and trust you will not misuse this flexibility for accidentally signing up during your bestie's wedding and realizing it the day before. In the event that Unglued needs to cancel the Retreat for any reason you will receive a full refund.
Will it be cold?
YES. There are very rare moments an Unglued event has good weather. This could be one, but get your parka and swimsuit ready because it could go either way. And we e are READY EITHER WAY.
You are welcome here.
We do not tolerate discrimination.
Unglued will not tolerate discrimination of any kind to anyone involved in our events including race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, or genetic information per Unglued's discretion. We have zero tolerance for harassment. This is grounds for immediate dismissal without warning from Retreat per Unglued's discretion.
Basically, be awesome.
“It was everything I needed right now! Fall retreat raised my spirits even while the weather was beginning to get cold, made me feel accomplished, and reminded me how wonderful life can be! It kicked-ass and I had an absolutely BLAST getting spicy with so many amazing humans!” – Past Attendee
