July each year in national parks and anyone who wants to can come who doesn't pratice violence ect.
Most Rainbows are well-behaved, but a significant minority steals to gain money to get to Rainbow gatherings. They will also shoplift supplies needed for the gathering. Given the extent of drug use among the Rainbow Family members, it is no surprise that violence is much more common than these "peaceful folks" care to admit. Rainbow Family culture is still far more sexist than they admit. The women do most of the work at the Gatherings. The men generally look to get laid. Rainbows are well known for permissive policies regarding drug use and sex. STD's, particularly disease resistant strains, are common among the Rainbows.
