Connect with the Gods and Goddesses through rituals, dancing, workshops, pagan/wiccan info booths, a scavenger hunt, and play with the May Royalty!

Indulge your senses in fine products, reading and other services among our merchants and relax and rejuvenate in our new healers tent. Enjoy pagan music by local musicians in our Performing Arts Center, browse through our Artisan Gallery featuring works by local artist, and sample tasty wares from our food vendors.

Plan for the day and bring the kiddos for a full schedule of fun in the Kids Korner! Support the event and join in our raffle, which features great prizes from our vendors and a chance to win some cash in our 50/50 raffle.

Potluck (traditional foods list below)

Ceremony & Fire!

BRING:  If you have a charm of black, red & white yarn woven in winter with intentions for spring fruition, bring it and we will complete the spell!

or make one now & meditate upon what you learned / how you’ve grown over winter’s journey to the underworld. (Natural fibers best – may be burned.)

 

Key actions to keep in mind during this time in the Wheel of the Year include openings and new beginnings. Work for improving communication and group interaction are recommended, as well as fertility and abundance. Ostara is a good time to start putting those plans and preparations you made at Imbolc into action. Start working towards physically manifesting your plans now. The most common colors associated with Ostara are lemon yellow, pale green and pale pink. However, also appropriate colors include grass green, all pastels, Robin’s egg blue, violet, and white. Stones to use during the Ostara celebration include aquamarine, rose quartz, and moonstone. Animals associated with Ostara are rabbits and snakes. Mythical beasts associated with Ostara include unicorns, merpeople, and pegasus. Plants and herbs associated with Ostara are crocus flowers, daffodils, jasmine, Irish moss, snowdrops, and ginger.

Foods in tune with this day (linking your meals with the seasons is a fine way of attuning with Nature) include eggs, egg salad, hard-boiled eggs, honey cakes, first fruits of the season, fish, cakes, biscuits, cheeses, honey and ham. You may also include foods made of seeds, such as sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds, as well as pine nuts. Sprouts are equally appropriate, as are leafy, green vegetables.
