Fourth of July, Eh? Gathering

Fourth of July, Eh? Gathering

Friday July 3rd at 1pm to Monday July 6th at 4pm
on The Land aka Amber Fox

Sometimes we Canucks get a bit confused. Like, most of us have no idea which weekend is supposed to be Canada Day Weekend when Canada Day falls on a Wednesday. So in honor [sic] of our American friends, the Land aka Amber Fox is pleased to present the first ever Fourth of July, Eh? Gathering!

For those who have been to a gathering on the Land aka Amber Fox before, you will know what to expect:
  • communal gourmet vegetarian meals
  • Saturday night Know Talent Show
  • bonfires
  • heart circles
  • lazy days in the sun
  • saunas
  • dressing up at the Foxy Boutique
  • magick & ritual
  • wandering a lush 75 acre faerie land
  • working in fellowship with your fae kin
  • partying in the Departure Lounge
  • meditating in the nearly-completed Meditation Saucer
  • trip to the market 
  • swimming in the nearby mighty Mississippi
  • anything the fae heart can imagine!

Remember, there are no paid staff here. Everything that manifests depends on faerie volunteer energy, and contributions to the purse:
  • washing dishes, preparing meals, planning events, chopping wood, mowing lawns, tidying and cleaning, repairs, new construction ... it's all up to us
  • but the work becomes play when shared with your fae friends!
  • the Purse relies on donations for the food we eat, fuel for the pump & lawn mowers, propane for the fridge & stove, insurance, candles, paper products, and all our other mundane needs
  • the suggested contribution is $25 per night, more if you can or less if you can't, and no one is turned away for lack of funds
  • we ask that everyone contribute some cash, even if you can only afford five or ten dollars per night
  • it is also helpful if you can make your contribution when you arrive at the gathering, so that it can be used at the next shopping trip

If this is your first faerie event, or your first visit to the Land aka Amber Fox:

The Fourth of July, Eh? Gathering on the Land aka Amber Fox is a gender and orientation inclusive event. The Land hosts gatherings for gay and queer men at other times of the year.

If you are a member of our Facebook Group, you can RSVP to the Facebook Event. Otherwise, please email to obtain directions and contact information.
