Old-World Holiday Celebrations

Old-World Holiday Celebrations & Rituals for The Whole Community!

Join us as we re-invent the old celebration and ritual ways of our intelligent earth-based ancestors! These events will be collaborations between young and old – all those who want to help co-create a fun, raucous, joyful and reverent experience. Weaving the old with the new to nourish and reweave our community in a wonderful way.

Mabon Fall Equinox Celebration, Sunday September 21st:

6:30 – 7 pm: arrive and settle in
7 – 9:00 pm: join us in an all-ages community ritual followed by time to share snacks and spirits, tell stories and widen and deepen our communities, at a time when doing so is the most radical and important an act.

We ask for a donation of $10* per person/family for firewood, candles, beverages and whatever else we provide. But please don’t let the money prohibit you from attending. Pay what you can to help contribute to the cost of the event, whatever that is for you. Use the form on the right to make a donation, or bring your cash/check with you to the celebration. And please email us here to let us know you’re coming.

We will not have a meal together (so come having eaten) but feel free to bring a snack and/or hot beverage/spirit to share after the ritual as well as any songs, dances, and other celebratory ideas and supplies to assist our Spring Vernal Equinox honoring and revelry. 

These events begin at 6:30 pm and are located at 6482 Jib Court, Boulder 80301.

Please park on Mast and Kalua – the streets just prior to Jib. Jib is a small cul-de-sac and there is little to no room for parking.

All-Day Christmas Kiva, December 25th:

A fire will be kept and tended in The Kiva from sunrise through sunset on December 25th. We welcome any and all who want to stop by to sit fireside, in the earth, and enjoy the quiet contemplation and peaceful celebration of this time of year. No need to let us know you're coming. Bring your families, as you drive from this event to that, or come on your own for a brief respite from the day. We won't be sitting in the Kiva all day, so you may arrive to a wonderful fire with no humans present (lucky you!) or you may arrive to a full Kiva, with family and friends all sitting together. Dress warmly, and bring your songs, your readings, and any treat you may want to share.
