Lughnasadh / First Harvest

This year we are holding two Lughnasadh celebrations! The first, Friday evening July 29, will be at Jefferson Unitarian Church located at, 14350 West 32nd Ave., Golden, CO 80401. Gather at 6:30 pm, ritual begins at 7:00 pm. Join us as we celebrate and honor Artio, She-Bear Goddess, at Lughnasadh. Artio means “bear” and, like the bear, Artio wakes in the spring and is a goddess of The Harvest, Bears, Wild Animals, The Hunt, Fruits and Grains. 

Our second Lughnasadh, at our usual Overland Pond Park venue in Denver, will be Sunday, July 31st. Gather at 1 pm, ritual starts promptly at 2 pm. This will be an Irish-themed ritual, and the celebrant will be Rev. Debra "Rowen" Grove, our recently ordained Grove Priest. After the ritual, in addition to our usual potluck, there will be Lughnasadh Games!
