Join us for our open celebration of the Autumnal Equinox, known in the Craft as Mabon! Mabon is a sort of Wiccan Thanksgiving… We look to the fruits of our lives and ask the gods to continue to bless us with prosperity, abundance, and joy. It is at this time of year that the falling God of the grain is slain as His spirit makes it’s way through the land of death. The Lady, stirring with loneliness and love, descends to the Underworld to learn of the mysteries of life, death, and rebirth. We thank the Lady for giving humanity a glimpse of these mysteries in the display of the browning leaves all around us.
Through the holy mystery of the apple, we will seek the blessing of the goddess Pomona. Now is the time to look within. What are we grateful for?
See the registration page for full details, instructions, and weekend schedule:
The Firefly Mabon celebration is free but Prince William Forest changes $7 per vehicle entrance fee to the park.
Parking is limited at the campsite so carpooling is encouraged—plus it saves on the park entry fee. But there are satellite parking lots nearby.
Our Mabon gathering places a special focus on the potluck aspect, so please do try to bring something bigger than a small snack. If you’re not a great cook, that’s ok, prepped foods are welcome too. If you’re staying the night, please remember to bring foods for yourself for the rest of the time 🙂
