Canada Day Gathering Coming soon, Get it on your Mind!

It's one of the most fun gatherings for queer men in the Radical Faerie Tradition. Its popular with American and Canadian Fae ones as it falls on Canada Day and Independence Day. 

There will be daily dips in the river, saunas, heart circles, and the return of Fetish NIGHT! A really big Know Talent Show to go with the new awesome Tech stuff we have brought together.

Besides the usual crafty stuff you can share with others or pick up from others we await your ideas. Maybe a group art project.

The food is awesome and vegetarian. We cook communal meals, sit down and enjoy them together in the Erection. There is much fun to be had by all.

Our gatherings are getting bigger and more diverse. Look forward to seeing many others in a judgmental free space. You get to be you. If you like time alone, the land and area is beautiful in the summer. The Land provides many awesome places to be alone or together.

Of course the Gatherings at Amberfox are famous for among other things, the gourmet food and the ritualistic (Just plain Spectacular) fires and good people.

One Fae tradition is to dress (or not) in spectacular outfits. Remember, everyone at AmberFox is a star, so this is your chance to dress the part. Need help putting an outfit together? The Foxy Boutique is well stocked and plenty of boys will help you look the part. Boy drag, girl drag, animal drag, even tree or straight drag is cool. Then again, the less adornment one has, can often be the best. Its your call!

Its time to start planning. We provide free pick up at the bus in Perth or the train station in Smith Falls and we promise to get you back for your return bus or train. Just try to give us 12 hours notice, so we don't miss you!

We can also work to assist matching people up with rides from Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa.

We ask that you feed the Purse $25 per day. More if you can less if you can't. The land and facilities are made available by the owner and the Amberfox Faeries. Its only possible if the Purse does well.

Join us on Canada Day for rites of summer, AmberFox is a place for gay and queer men. We come from all over Canada and the United States to attend gatherings. Join us in celebrating and giving to the land that sustains and nurtures our spirits and our lives.

Gathering info for Victoria Day weekend

Coming to the Land for Victoria Day?  It looks like it will be very nice weather.  This is Ontario though so anything could happen.  You will want to be prepared.  Suggest you bring your tent, a foamie to sleep on, a good sleeping bag, warm clothes in case of chilly nights, something to keep the rain off should it dare drip on us, and of course what would spring be like without some flies and mosquitoes. It can be buggy and then maybe not.  (We do have some limited indoor space for those without a tent!)

It would be good to bring your choice of bug repellent.  You can minimize bug bites by showering, (we have a fabulous shower) do not use soaps or shampoos with smelly stuff.  Your sweat is like an elixir from the goddess for these flying creatures.

Our meals are all vegetarian. Not Vegan, though we could do that for some peeps.  Meals are prepared communally, so no need to bring ingredients, we will put together a list from menu ideas people have when they arrive.  If you have a recipe you like, bring a copy of it so we can put it in our collection of nummy eats. We ask for $25 per day.  That helps cover the cost of food, propane, insurance and upkeep.

If you play a musical instrument that you can carry, feel welcome to bring it.  The Know Talent Show could use your help!  If not up to that, playing music outside is awesome around the fire or anytime!

Need more info or directions, email me here .

Victoria Day Weekend - 2011

Its Victoria day weekend coming up!  Are we ready to welcome spring to the Land?  The Land is wide awake and as each day goes by we see more life leaping forward.  The trees are are almost leafed out, the grass is a rich green, flowers are beginning to bloom, and your queer selfs will surely bring it great pleasure.

The Victoria Day weekend will be the first Gathering of the year and it looks to be a great year on the land.  A big garden will be planted, the erection awaits to host the Know Talent Show.  The promise of great sustenance assures us we are the gourmet food gathering on the Fae circuit.

As usual there will be a ritual opening of thanks around a giant fire to cleanse the land and our spirits.  A Trek to the Maple Bush to remember those that left us.  A Know Talent Show, and I am sure a few encounters with the alien baby could be in order.

We have an erection project this year.  Its a place to meditate, to enjoy the peace, the bonding and what ever else one does with erections such as the Fae inspired ones that leap to mind.  Your input is desired.

This Victoria Day I am told that Geneva, Chiplandia and two secret acts will perform for us.  If you want to share your talents in the Know Talent Show, you would make us all so happy.  Bring your instruments, drums are great, your voice or enthusiasm.

The bunkhouse calls, the departure lounge welcomes, the sauna invites, the erection warms, the Land holds, Fae ones together, reuniting our tribe, inviting young and old, big and small, you and me and them too.

R U Coming? Lets us NO so we can plan! #Fae #Radialfaeries #AKAAMBERFOX #queer #Gay
