Community Seasonal Festivals
As the ties of community grow stronger, we are moved to re-affirm our connections to one another and to our Earth. This began, at Stone Mountain Farm, the celebrations which are now our Community Seasonal Festivals. Playfully invoking the realm of myth & wonder, they center around the Solstices, Equinoxes and the ancient Fire Festivals which mark the midpoints of the seasons. Come sing and dance with us, as we celebrate the wheel of the year together.
Our first and currently largest festival marks the start of our season, annually the last Saturday of April Or the first Saturday closest to May First (See our Calendar for the exact dates). Hundreds of attendees welcome in the summer, dancing the Maypole, singing, playing in our pageant, picnicking and applauding the jongleurs, thespians and musicians.
