We are very fortunate on the East Coast to have a variety of Pagan and Scottish /Celtic festivals. Almost any weekend,anywhere in Virginny,Nc,West Va,Tennessee,there is a festival going on. We participate and sponsor quite a few. We're heading to the Grandfather Mountains Highland Games Sunday,thousands of us from the Scottish Clans. We have great drum circles and balefires every eve. www.gmhg.org.......What festivals or type of events do you participate in or would like too? We have a Samhain ritual/celebration at one of the olde mansions here in oct and Beltane festivals in the park,also......

My cousin told me about "Witchstock" in Buffalo TX next October, and we've decided to camp there for the weekend of 10/6/12. Here's a link I found: http://www.goby.com/witchstock-18--near--buffalo-tx/e-10586983#sour...
It looks like a great chance to play my music and interact with other strange people. LOL!
THANKS!!! Also you do Ren Faires too,right? I know we chatted a bit befiore about the Penn and MD Ren Faires......
Have you ever gone to the Pennsic War?
Tell us more!! i'm not a muscian,but i dance
Pennsic is the largest SCA event, averages 10,000, yes 10,000 people. It's 2 weeks long. It's held at Cooper's Campground in Butler county Pa. about 45 mins north of Pittsburgh. It's also international. I've met people from Australia, England, Germany, and of course Canada. Here's link to the main page and from there links to all kinds of pages with pics of the various activities.

Aside from combat, there is the arts and sciences, 100's of classes from how to build seige weapons to how to camp without ice. Drumming everynight in someone's camp, big theme parties, and several hundred vendors.
If you enjoy Ren Faires and period re-enactment, battles and good people and good times, please check it out.
NICE!!! Sounds like our Festival at Grandfather Mts we're leaving for shortly,over 70,000 of us for the 4 day fest,though many of us camp for a week or more......oh,aye the drumming,indeed!! Have a website??"WE just got a pop up for camping.....lol
I usually go to the Tx Ren Fest, but I don't know that I'd say I "do" them. LOL! I like to pretend to be a musician, and I've gotten good enough that I might be able to fool non-musicians for the space of a song or two. So, I go and drink, and if the mood strikes me, then I play at playing.
I hope the crowd at Witchstock has forgiving ears, or enough other musicians that I can blend in.
NICE!!! Many Ren Faire performers work for tips.at MD and Minnesota......
Thanks Sat_S......its a fine time,indeed! We see it much as our ancestors got together
