We expect 400+ people to attend our gala. There will be costume contests, dancing, readers, lights on our labyrinth, ongoing evening ceremonies.

Among us will be coven members, solitaries, the experienced, the seekers, and the curious. We expect respectful behavior from everyone.

At The Witches Ball, you will be dancing to music by DeeJay Izrafel that will be raucous and magickal. Vending and Readings and More. Moon Path Merchant - KING OF CUUPS CATERING - Smiling Sun Silver - Sword and Swan - Readers will be available for your divining pleasure.

We will hold an Attunement Ritual in the Memorial Garden. There will be lights on the labyrinth for walking.

At 10:15 pm, we will perform a Druid Rite with Ash the Silent.

Bring your drums/musical instruments for the drum circle. Bring your lawn chairs to sit outside under the stars

We will enjoy Celtic Mayhem the popular American Renaissance Festival music group.  They draw upon classic ballads and bawdy humor, drawn both from the local taverns and the halls of the nobility. They will be performing an opening set and then reprise with the magick of the season.

Celtic Mayhem is well know to South Florida audiences. They have released 8 recordings and perform live primarily where Pagan folk gather.

At midnight, we spin the Wheel of the Year. We retell the story of this season as we stare into the Fire of Transformation.

Perhaps we will be greeted by Spirit Dancers as we enter the Underworld and our Ritual Space.

We will have drums and bonfires. We will light candles for our departed loved ones and reach out to them through sacred fire.

Cost of the Ball, $20 at the door. 

Kids Free when accompanied by parents and, yes, they are parents' responsibility. Bring your favorite beverage. We have one food vendor, some readers, and more. Ritual garb and/or costumes are encouraged. NO PHOTOS AT RITUALS! No photos elsewhere without consent of all those included, even in background. Some of us are still closeted. Shhhhh!
