A Very Faerie October in Ontario

It's a very Faerie October this year, with not just the one, but TWO Faerie gatherings happening in Ontario this month!

As well as the traditional Thanksgiving Gathering for gay & queer men October 5 - 8, on the Land aka Amber Fox, in eastern Ontario, there will be an all-gender Samhain Gathering October 18 - 21, at Fox's Haven, north of Georgian Bay.

Thanksgiving Gathering

Friday, October 5 at 2pm to Monday, October 8 at 2pm
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. All that is missing is you.

For those who have been to a gathering on the Land aka Amber Fox before, you will know what to expect:

  • crisp autumn days
  • Saturday night's Know Talent Show
  • communal vegetarian meals, with a Thanksgiving feast on the Sunday
  • saunas
  • bonfires
  • heart circles
  • dressing up at the Foxy Boutique
  • magick & ritual
  • working in fellowship with your fae kin
  • partying in the Departure Lounge
  • trip to the market 
  • anything the fae heart can imagine!

There is plenty of room for tenting along the Path of the Snake and in the May Pole field. There is also room for some to sleep in the Bunkhouse (though this is on a first-come first-served basis and space is limited). Make sure you bring a warm sleeping bag or plenty of blankets! If the weather is very cold, the Departure Lounge and even the sauna can become snuggly sleeping quarters.

Remember, there are no paid staff here. Everything that manifests depends on faerie volunteer energy, and contributions to the purse: 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.

This event is for gay and queer men.

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.

Foxy Faeries Samhain Gathering

Thursday, October 18 at 4pm to Sunday, October 21 at 4pm
at Fox's Haven, near Lake Nipissing

The leaves are falling, the harvest is done.
Samhain arrives with the setting sun.
The bonfire is lit and offerings ready.
The smell of the smoke makes us feel heady.

“Faeries and spirits, one and all,
We ask you now to hear our call.”
One by one, the Fae arrive
And soon the party begins to come alive.

Singing and dancing, stories and boasts,
Interspersed with many ghosts.
As the fires burn out
We all at once shout,
“Happy Samhain this year
To all Foxy Faeries far and near”

Samhain is one of the four great seasonal festivals of the pagan calendar year. It marks the end of the harvest season and the coming of winter.

It is traditionally a time for feasts, friends, festivities, meetings, and a gathering of the clan.

It is also a time that the doorways to the other worlds open, allowing magical beings and spirits to play.

In other words, it is the perfect time for us Fae folk to get together for a fabulous and wonderful gathering!!

How will the Fae Folk celebrate Samhain?
