If you’re thinking of bringing children, please review our policy on including kids at our events.


Our next event is our first annual “Feast for Manannan”  – Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Join Northern Rivers Protogrove for a fun day at Grass Point State Park on the beautiful St. Lawrence River. We will have an informal ADF ritual in honor of Manannan mac Lir, God of the sea, and the local river spirits who connect to the sea. The feasting will take place in the middle of the ritual, and we’ll call to mind Manannan presiding over the feasting beneath the sidhe mounds.

This will be a relaxing way to honor summer even though we won’t be doing it on or close to the Solstice date.

Check back for more details as we approach!

The group has reserved a pavilion, so this event will happen rain or shine! Pray for good weather, though, because there’s a BEACH!


*** What to Bring ***

– An open heart/mind

– A picnic potluck dish to pass as well as your own place settings ( emphasis on reusable so as to respect the Earth Mother as much as we can )

– A small donation towards our rental fee and ritual supplies

– $7 parking fee for the park

– A bathing suit if you wish.  There is a changing station / bathroom near the pavilion.

For more information or directions, please email Northern Rivers Protogrove (address above on the left).

  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.


    • 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. :)

    • Hello Jon,

      You don’t have to but it definitely helps with things like planning the potluck. Are you part of our FB group? If not, I encourage you to join. You can RSVP for the event there and get an estimate for food. At the moment, between the event page and who I know is coming, I’m guessing 20ish people (including some children).

      Let me know if you have any questions!

  5. Sounds like a great event! I just discovered the Kripalu yoga wellness center yesterday. Very nice place with very welcoming company. I hope we can attend for the spring equinox, I will be in touch as we get closer to the High day.
    Blessed Be~ Matthew.

    • Hi Matthew! The Yoga Center is such a wonderful place, and the people there have been very hospitable to us. I hope you’ll be able to attend as well! I appreciate you letting us know for sure in advance. It will help us prepare materials for the workshop before ritual. :)
