Our Next High Day Celebration is for Lughnasadh  - Friday, July 25th – Sunday, July 27th

It is an Irish tradition at Lughnasadh for the tribes to gather. In that spirit, Northern Rivers Protogrove will join with Muin Mound Grove for their Annual Lugh Games! Come for a day or camp all weekend!

Muin Mound Grove is where Grey and Weretoad first learned the ways of Druidism, so it feels right to “come home,” rub elbows with our elders and friends, and celebrate our kinship. Northern Rivers would not exist without Muin Mound Grove!

*** Friday, July 25th ***

Arrive in the afternoon and set up your tent.  The evening will be spent in fellowship around a fire with chanting  and drumming if you like.

*** Saturday, July 26th ***

Compete in a variety of games throughout the day.  The overall champion will be honored at the ritual on Sunday!

There will be a potluck dinner that night followed by more fellowship around a bonfire.

*** Sunday, July 27th ***

The weekend will conclude with a ritual to honor Lugh at 11 am.  This will be followed by a light potluck of crackers, cheese, and other munchies.

*** What to Bring ***

- An open heart/mind
- Offerings for Lugh if you feel inclined
- Offerings for your personal Spirit allies or the Three Kindreds in general
- Drums/noisy things for the bonfire if you like
- Your own camping equipment if you are staying the night
- A donation of canned goods or pet food for the Grove’s charities

  2. Hey the Autumn Equinox ritual is on the same day as my wedding! I think my fiance and I will try to visit your grove either for Summer Solstice or Lughnasadh. I’ll let you know for sure if we can work it out as it gets closer to those High Days.

    Blessings,
    Victoria

    • It would be wonderful to meet you! Just keep in mind that this year is a little iffy around those times because of my pregnancy. Summer Solstice may be canceled, and Lughnasadh will be happening in Syracuse with Muin Mound Grove. If you can ever make it up to Northern NY and want to vacation in the beautiful Thousand Islands around a High Day, do let us know! We’d love to have you. :)

  3. Will there be any discussion groups, ect going on other than the Sabbat Rituals? I know that in order to be a full member in the Grove, you have to attend a Ritual, A study session, and a “meet and greet.” I don’t see anything but rituals posted on the calendar though :)

    • Actually, you have to attend three events and at least one of them has to be a ritual. The other two could be other rituals, other study meetings, etc. So you’ve got one under your belt! Perhaps I need to clarify that on the membership page?

      We are working on getting more events scheduled. There will be others, it’s just that we don’t have a lot of time between Imbolc and Spring Equinox. We’ve got a business meeting coming up and we’ll discuss some possibilities for the upcoming months. :)
