Varthing: A Celebration of the First Day of Summer 2018
Celebrate the First Day of Summer with Várblót and traditional activities. Explore the mysteries, magic, tradition and folklore as well as participate in rituals and rites honoring the Norse/Germanic gods. We will be holding an egg decorating contest and our annual egg hunt and games for children of all ages on Saturday. This year the event has been expanded, starting Thursday evening and running until Sunday morning for a full extra day of activities and discussions.
Bunkhouse accommodations are limited so please reserve your space early if you are planning on sleeping in the bunkhouse.
Registration will be $30 per person over 16 (children are free) for the whole weekend, or $15 for one day, (Friday or Saturday). Registration includes bunkhouse overnight accommodations and meals (Potluck on Thursday night, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday, breakfast on Sunday morning). There are spaces for RV and tent camping.
Please let us know ahead of time if you are planning on attending or post to the Facebook page if you have any questions or concerns.
