Celebrate the harvest and the bounty of the Earth with a sacred feast! Inspired by the Norse húsel and symbel, our celebration will take place in our outdoor hall, with the feast as the main portion of the rite. An Dagda will preside over the feast, receiving the first portions of the dishes, and we will hear his stories.

During the feast, toasting, praise offerings, boasting, oathing, and gifting may take place. All offerings are made while holding the horn, to join our wyrd together. (Any oaths must be vetted by the Leadership Council in advance in accordance with Dancing Lights Grove’s Oath Policy.)

This is also the occasion of our annual Dagda’s Cauldron Food Drive, and all are asked to bring non-perishable food items or other household goods for donation. In the past, we’ve raised over 60lbs of food, and we’d like to do so again!
