Look for the pavilion
The strength of the old goes into the new,
As the power of life, empowers the brew!
The waxing wheel of the year spins us to a place of balance, greening and new beginnings. Here, poised on the cusp where night and day are equal we celebrate the return of the Goddess to the Lands Beneath the Open Sky.
Come join us for a ritual of celebration as we plant the seeds of the growing year. What seeds would you like to harvest in the future?
Put on your best Ostara Bonnet or Hat and Come Celebrate with us!

The festival of Ostara is named from the Germanic Goddess Eostre, who heralds the dawn and the springtide of the year. Her symbols include the Hare or Rabbit, the Egg (and baby chicks) and the waxing Crescent Moon.
