Our entertainment director has created a dynamic line-up of entertainers from this year's event. Our event kicks-off (literally!) with an intense, ceremonial drum circle on Friday, August 18 from 5 to 8 pm. Both days we will host a welcoming opening ceremony led with our Keynote Speaker, Laura Tempest Zakroff, followed by an entire line-up of amazing musicians, dancers, and performers all day long. Read the full schedule and learn more about our entertainers on our website here.
We have a whole line-up of workshops throughout the weekend, as well! You can find the workshop schedule listed in our program. Some workshop titles to look for include Knot Magic, Making your own Witch's Ladder, Wyrdcraft: Holistic Healing-Magic for Mind-Body-World-Soul, Daring to Dream the Future of Witchcraft and American Paganism, Deities of the Dead and Ancestor Practices, and more.
Please note: entertainment schedules and workshops can change without notice based on weather, attendance, traffic, and the overall need to keep the event on track!
Food trucks will be located on the North side of the event location near the old church. We will have an array of dining options to suite most palettes and preferences. We thank all food truck owners and their teams for their participation!
