The Best Bamboo

Sustainably Harvested

Building With Bamboo

Lucidity uses Columbian Guadua construction grade bamboo for shade structures, portals, stage facades, light installations and more! It is great for a wide variety of structural and decorative uses. The sky’s the limit!

Guadua Bamboo is a great material for art installations as well as permanent architectural elements for home or business. Currently available in 10’ and 20’ pole lengths. 40’ pole lengths may be special ordered with a lead time ranging from 3-6 months (in accordance to harvest season in Colombia). A uniquely versatile and supremely beautiful material, incredibly strong, lightweight, flexible, as well as sustainably harvested and ethically sourced directly from the jungles of Colombia.

Why the Best Bamboo?

After years of searching for a source of bamboo that was in alignment with Lucidity’s values we were connected to a grower in Colombia. We even flew to Colombia to meet with the owner so we could build a strong partnership to supply construction grade Guadua bamboo to California.

Our History with Bamboo

Since Lucidity’s very first festival in 2012, bamboo has been the central construction material for all the workshops spaces, stages, portals, eating areas and more that we co-create at Live Oak Campground.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the inspiring artistry and mentorship from Gerard Minakawa, owner of Bamboo DNA, a mentor and teacher to many of us, for making much of his bamboo available to Lucidity’s fledgling team of festival builders in the early years. In addition to collaborating closely with the event by designing and building the the main stages for the first three years, helping Lucidity ‘set the stage’ for a long term relationship with this amazing material!

Over the years our needs for our own bamboo has grown exponentially as we become more and more adept at designing with its use in mind. We’ve observed over time that our dedication to bamboo has nourished the connection between our company, our teams and our greater community. We sustain and training our festival builders year-round in between our annual Lucidity Festival by creating shade and stages for lots of local events and festival in Santa Barbara and surrounding counties. Check out all the possibilities with Collaborative Events!

In 2017 we began our partnership with The Best Bamboo, a sustainably minded Colombian company whose founder has been growing and distributing bamboo to worldwide clientele for over 10 years to bring more Bamboo to the festival community and beyond.
