Northern Rivers Protogrove is busily preparing for the 2nd Annual North Country Fairy and Earth Festival! This year is set to be bigger than the last, and it will be located in the beautiful, shaded Thompson Park in Watertown, NY on August 15th from 10 am – 6 pm. The purpose of the event is to celebrate the diversity of the Pagan and magical communities of Northern NY, and enjoy a day of whimsy! There will be vendors, holistic healers, seers, workshops, food, music, roaming performances, a harvest festival lead by Watertown CUUPs, and several activities for children.
The Protogrove is preparing to have an informational table about the group and ADF Druidism, but we’re also going to have an interactive Earth Mother shrine! Guests will be able to stop and make an offering, meditate, or even contribute to our fairy looms.
Last week, several of us met to work on the triptych centerpiece. Members of Northern Rivers are planning to meet again early in August to finish it. We can’t wait to share it with you!
For now, here’s a sneak peek of one of the Earth Mother banners Grey Catsidhe has been working on. We want our shrine to be beautiful!
