Thanksgiving Gathering 2013

Thanksgiving Gathering

Friday, October 11 at 1pm to Monday, October 14 at 3pm
on The Land aka Amber Fox

Imagine the Land in Technicolor! Seventy-five acres of rolling hills and valleys, painted with the brilliant fall colours of maple, larch, oak and elm.
The days are getting shorter and the nights colder, so it is time to snuggle up with your Faerie brethren, party in the Departure Lounge, roast by the fire and steam in the sauna.

Some activities are planned, and the rest is up to us: crafts, spa treatments, ritual & magick, drumming & meditation, anything we can imagine or desire.

The Gathering begins and ends in Circle with short administrative and longer Heart Circles each morning. Meals are communal, vegetarian and delicious! The Foxy Boutique stands ready to furnish all your drag and dress up needs.

There is plenty of room for tenting along the Path of the Snake and in the May Pole field. The cooler nights will encourage many to opt for snuggling in the Bunkhouse, and if it is very cold, the Departure Lounge and even the sauna can hold extra sleepers!

The work is shared and so is the play. As well as contributions with the chores that keep the Land running, we rely on contributions to the Purse for food, fuel for the pump & lawn mowers, propane for the fridge & stove, paint, materials for repairs, paper products and all our other mundane needs. We use an honour system and ask that you pay what you can - nobody is turned away for lack of funds. The suggested donation is $15 to $35 per night, $25 on average, more if you can or less if you can't. For those attending the whole gathering, that works out to $45 to $105, average $75.

If you are a member of our Facebook Group, you can RSVP to the Facebook Event. Otherwise, please email to let us know that you are coming.

Remember this is eastern Ontario in the autumn, so bring appropriate clothing and a warm sleeping bag or lots of blankets. You should check the latest weather forecast too.

Friday Night: Faeries in De Nile

As it was written on the ancient papyrus, so will it come to pass. It's Faeries in De Nile, so bring your pyramids, mummies and Ancient Egyptian finery for another fabulous theme night. 

Friday evening, enjoy an Ancient Egyptian feast in the Erection. Cous cous, vine leaves, baba ghanouj, hummus, olives and falafel. OK, who am I kidding? I'm totally faking it. I have no idea what the Ancient Egyptians actually ate, but you can read about it here. We are still seeking chefs, so bring your favourite recipes from the Nile region and dive right in!

Then later that evening, it's time to walk like an Egyptian and dance the night away in the Departure Lounge. Who knows who will make an appearance: Bast, Cleopatra, Nefertiti, maybe even Ra! 

Saturday Night: Know Talent Show

After an early dinner (really!) on Saturday night we will enjoy the many talents the Fae folk bring to the Know Talent Show. Can you sing, dance, recite a poem or play an instrument? Or do you have a flair for performance art? If so, we would love to have you join us on stage!

A bit shy but want to try? Talk to the show's organizers and they will be sure to find a suitable role for you. More of a watcher than a performer? An appreciative audience is the other essential ingredient for this ever-popular event!
