Our Deity of the Occasion this time will be Lugh. In keeping with our theme of first harvests, we encourage offerings of such (or their equivalent for the non-growers amongst us). Athletic games will follow the ritual, which may, or may not, include foot wrestling, leg wrestling, a warped version of pole vaulting or other silly contests.

Summer Solstice 2018

Date: Sunday June 17

Location:
Overland Park Pond
955 West Florida Avenue, Denver CO 80223

Time: 2-5

The days grow long, the sun burns high, and it’s time to celebrate the Summer Solstice. Join us under the summer sun as we praise the bright and fertile season and mark the turning of the wheel.
As with all our rituals, all friendly faces are welcome. There will be a time for the folk to make offerings to their own patrons, ancestors, land kin, or other such beings. Please make sure your physical offerings are burnable/biodegradable. Offerings of poetry and song are also welcome.

Following the ritual there will be a time for feasting and fellowship. Please contribute to our potluck, taking your own dietary needs in mind as well. We encourage HOMEMADE dishes, made with love. If you’re not a gardener, support your local Farmer’s Market, or see what ingredients are Colorado-made and in season at your favorite grocery store.

Please be aware that this is also Denver Gay Pride Weekend. There will be street closures around Civic Center Park. Prepare your route accordingly.


We look forward to seeing you. And bring a friend!
