Think campfire sing-alongs, spastic experimental noise rock, craft fairs, morning yoga, tarot readings, canoeing, burlesque and pond swimming can't coexist happily in one place? Think again.

"The idea of Fabulosa Fest was to try to do a big party that happens to be a fundraiser," says Dawn Huston, who along with Judea Eden and Jenny Hoyston organizes the festival. Among the performers at this year's fest are indie sensation Mirah, experimental noisemakers Erase Errata, humorous singer Gretchen Phillips, lesbian-folk icon Phranc and the almighty Kaia, former guitarist and singer for queer punk rock band Team Dresch, who performs campfire songs on Friday evening. While the event is women and queer-oriented, all genders are "happy and welcome" to attend, says Huston.

Huston adds the best part is that "we give all the money away." All proceeds from the festival are donated to Positive Images, a Sonoma County nonprofit providing support to Sonoma County's LGBT youth and young adult population.

Fabulosa Fest 2011 runs Friday-Sunday, July 15-17, at Walker Creek Ranch.

1700 Marshall-Petaluma Road, Petaluma. $35-$45 per day; weekend passes available. www.fabulosafest.org.
