What is Lughnassad?
In Celtic mythology the god Lugh established the festival as a feast, with games commemorating his foster-mother Tailtiu. We will be celebrating in much the same fashion as a tribute to Lugh and a celebration of the harvest.
Yup! All kinds of games! Board games, trivia games, lawn games, water games, competitive basket weaving! When you arrive you'll join a team! You and your team will participating in games and workshops and even classes all weekend and rack-up points to try and win the Lugh-Cup! (or banner or... rock, maybe... we haven't sorted it out yet.) Can you and your team defeat our reigning champions?
event we're doing something different with the registration: you can choose to participate in-person (at Gifford Pinchot park), or virtually, from the comfort of your own home. We'll be glad to see you either way. <3
In-Person registration includes 3 nights of camping at the park, and participation in all our workshops and competitions. Make sure to bring everything you need to sleep, eat, and have fun in the woods; there's no catering this time! See program for details.
Virtual registration includes streamed workshops, rituals, and other activities the festival, as well as a as well as a "take-home" box with all your goodies from the weekend mailed to you after Lugh. (No ritual supplies this time! Just mementos.)
