Wild + Free Dallas, TX - Sold Out

May 20-21, 2022 | The Statler Ballroom

We're coming back to Dallas for our spring Wild + Free conference at the Statler Ballroom on May 20-21, 2022! Join nearly 1,000 Wild + Free mamas for two days of insight, inspiration, encouragement, and community.

This gathering will feature main-stage keynotes, great music, guest artists, a Wild + Free storefront, access to the charming sights and sounds of the city outside the door, and some big surprises we can't wait to share!

We may not all homeschool the same, but we're in this together.

The Hunts

The Hunts are an indie-alternative-folk band comprised of seven brothers and sisters who just happen to have been homeschooled.

Born and raised in the south lands of Chesapeake, VA, the siblings grew up in a musical home and fell in love with composing their own music.

The band members include: Josh (guitar, lead vocals), Jenni (violin, lead vocals), Jonathan (keys, vocals), Jordan (drums, vocals), Justin (bass, vocals), Jamison (mandolin, vocals) and Jessi (viola, banjo, vocals). 

They pour their blood, sweat and tears  into every song and strive to write music that moves hearts with beauty, power and joy. | @thehuntsmusic
