|10:56 am - Festival Schedule for 2011|
Here's my official, set-in-stone festival schedule for this year:
- Trillium (Apr. 14-17, Cross Junction, VA)
- Wellspring (May 26-30, Sherman, NY)
- ComFest (June 24-26, Columbus, OH)*
- Dublin Irish Festival (Aug 5-7, Dublin, OH)
- CraneFest (Sept 2-5, Columbus, OH)
- Midnight Flame (Sept 8-11, Bellaire, MI)
* - I have skylark913's wedding to do on June 25, so I won't be at ComFest most of Saturday.
Tentative Festivals I'm considering:
- Free Spirit Gathering (June 14-19, Darlington, MD)
- Summerland (Aug 18-21, Yellow Springs, OH)
- Earth Warrior's Festival (Sept 16-18, Clarksville, OH)
Indeed, you see right: there's a CraneFest on the schedule. We're chatting about what exactly that means, but apparently the one we had last year was a smashing success. . . I don't know anything about the themes or nature of the little festival because I couldn't go last year. But this year I can!
Current Location: Southeast of Disorder
Current Mood: chipper
Current Music: "Costal Confessions", -JB
Indeed. These things happen. Of the three on the list, it's the one I am most likely to attend, I suppose.
I see you are trusting me to handle Wisteria :) MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Well, I've got a prior (and, I think, very important) commitment that weekend :)
Oh I know. I'm also not sure when our ritual is, if it's the weekend or not. I was just musing over that fact :)
Might be a good thing to learn ;) If I try to do FSG, I'm pretty sure I can't also do Wisteria and ComFest. Heck, that time of year, just doing ComFest is often suspect :)
I know Jim won't be able to take that whole week off, especially if he has to do VAD duties at Brushwood...so that leaves little ol' me with FREE REIGN! mwahahahahaha :)
Cranefest is our opportunity to get together and just HANG OUT, without meetings and other duties at other festivals. Friends and members ONLY, as defined in by-laws.
We also tried to do a Celtic-focused thingy last year (which we did a little, but not as much as I would have liked), and this year was going to be Norse-focused, and year after that Hellenic...matching the survey I did on 'hearth cultures' :)
Sunday a.m. after breakfast was brainstorming session about what we'd like to see the grove do, and some air clearing as well. It was awesome :)
Oh, sounds like I missed the one I'd have been really interested in. Ah, well. I emphasize content too much, anyway (weird, since I rarely get any at festivals). (Get any "content" that is. . . though if I think about it, I guess it's true both with and without the innuendo.)
You do realize that having me there will create meetings and duties, right? It's just organic with me (and rather annoying, generally).
well due to the laidbackness of it, and 'sleeping in' and then the 9/11 ritual we did....the Celtic-y-ness of it (or more accurately, the Irish-y-ness) of it was limited to just a very informal round table-y discussion of the Tuatha de Danann (with some Gaulish and Welsh cross references thrown in) and a Bridget meditation led by tanwyn
. I was hoping for Celtic-y rituals and such, but that didn't happen. Which was fine. There was lots of silliness, random oracle readings, and such...
We had a rotation for the kitchen, which worked nicely, I thought.
And I will resist your attempts at meetings and duties :)
Wow, that sounds like a good year! Especially the Irish Festival. :-)
I think it'll be pretty awesome :) The Irish Festival is a great time, and we're currently on the schedule to provide one of the Sunday services: the "Druid Service." We had over 300 people show up last year, and it was pretty darn cool :)
oh, you might want to check the dates for EWF. FB had them as the following weekend. Unless she's changed it.
I got them from your husband's FB post, since the EWF site wasn't updated with this year's dates at all yet.
So, I guess we'll just wait to see. . .
you should know better than that :)

Re: West Coast?
Ah, still recovering financially from the wedding :) I have 8 Winds in my sights, as soon as it doesn't conflict with ComFest, too.
