2016 Summer Events

In 2016, there is a Radical Faerie event in or near Ontario, EVERY SINGLE MONTH! Here's what we did the second quarter, and a preview of the next quarter's activities. Please join us - all those of fae heart and the fae curious (regardless of gender) are welcome at these events, except for the High Summer Gathering*, which is for gay and queer men.

Past (Spring) Events:

Reflections of Beltane
In April, the Glo'Tel in Toronto hosted a Through the Looking Glass Beltane Potluck. Verses were recited, croquet was played, libations were downed, and friendships were (re)kindled!

In May, the Beltane season festivities continued with our first gathering of the year, celebrating Victoria Day with the raising of the may pole on the Land aka Amber Fox.

And in just a few days (I am writing this the last week of June), our ever-so-slightly-belated June event will be a BBQ potluck picnic on Toronto Islands for Canada Day (Friday July 1st), with a bonfire and fireworks - join us if you can!!!

Upcoming (Summer) Events:

29th Annual High Summer Gathering*
Wednesday July 27th to Monday August 1st
on the Land aka Amber Fox

Once again it is nearly time for our largest annual event, the High Summer Gathering. Lazy summer days, maybe a trip for a dip in the Mighty Mississip', fabulous food, fun & fellowship, and of course, those hot summer nights! And if past gatherings have taught us anything, the high light of High Summer is the infamous High Tea. Don't miss it!

If you are a member of our Facebook Group, you can join in the discussion and planning on our Facebook Event.

* This event is for gay and queer men.

Blue Heron Gathering
The last week of August
at Blue Heron Farm in upstate New York

The week leading up to Labour Day weekend, we join our fae friends for their annual gathering at Blue Heron Farm in upstate New York. But don't make fun of them because they spell "labour" wrong! ;)

Torch Song Faeries
Saturday September 10th, 7 pm
at Academic Hall, University of Ottawa

Once again the fae folk will be going on a theatre outing to view another queer classic from the folks at TotoToo Theatre Company: and this time it is Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song Trilogy! Based on the stunning calibre of ToTo Too's previous work, this show a) will be fabulous and b) may contain nudity. Get your tickets for September 10th in advance (you can order them online) and meet us at Academic Hall at 7pm.

So don't skimp on the summer shenanigans!
Find festive frivolity with the Faeries!!!
