July 25 - 28, 2013
Eight Winds Festival is an ADF (Ar nDraiocht Fein - Our Own Druidry) camping event held annually somewhere in the Northwest Region of the United States. This year it will be held at the White Mountain Druid Sanctuary at Trout Lake Abbey near Trout Lake, Washinton.
There will be workshops on various subjects of interest to Druids, rituals, and lots of great fellowship! So we look forward to seeing you here!
Registration and Payment - You may either click here to download the registration form which you can print, fill out, and mail with your check to the address on the form. Click here to go to PayPal if you wish to pay that way. In either case, please print out the form and mail it to us at the Sanctuary.
Accomodations - Tent camping and limited RV space (dry camp) available. If bringing an RV, please let us know in advance. There may also be some beds available in the Hostel room (4 bunk beds). There are also cabins for rent in Trout Lake as well as a motel and an Inn. Information is available upon request.
Your fee is for the festival, not for the camping - that's free. So there will be no discounts if you choose to take accommodations off-site.
Facilities - There are two large meeting rooms, a cob-built Sanctary building, and a large Stone Circle. Dining will be outdoors under cover. There are three indoor showers and toilet rooms on site. There will also be porta-johns and an outdoor shower area.
Presenters and Workshops - We have a great line-up of presenters with great workshops! Presenters include John "Fox" Adelmann, Phaedra Bonewits, Ian Corrigan and Liafal, Michael Dangler, Jen Hoover, Caryn MacLuan, Carrion Mann, Jean Pagano, and B-J Rogers! Click here for more information.
