Festival of Fire
This ancient Pagan festival celebrates the official arrival of the warmer season and the hope of a good harvest to come.
The event kicks off at 2pm with a blessing and cleansing of the cows. Festival goers can then look forward to a Blacksmith Demonstration and insightful story telling of our ancestors from trained Shamanic healer, storyteller and Priestess of Elen, Baya.
