Druids In Cars, Going To Festivals

Episode 34 - Dublin Irish Festival 2019 (In Three Parts)

August 8, 2019

Each year, Three Cranes Grove, ADF, does a Sunday Morning Druid Service for the Dublin Irish Festival. The attendance ranges from about 200 to 350 people each year, depending on weather and a few other factors. This year, we drew 248 to the service, and the attendees come from all walks of life: this is a truly mainstream event and a diverse crowd of folks.

We decided to record our experience in three parts for you to get an idea of what it's like to put on a ritual of this sort. We recorded after our dress rehearsal on Thursday, then in the car on the way to the rite (twice, thanks to a forgetful bard who forgot her coffee... among other important things), and finally on the way home from the rite.

You can watch our archived livecast from this year on the Three Cranes Facebook page (Like & Subscribe while there, if you'd like).

You can watch past DIF rites on our YouTube page, 3CGVideos (and an edited 2019 will eventually appear there, too, or you can watch a playlist of pre-DIF music). You can, of course, subscribe to our YouTube channel to get updates when we post new content there, too!

If you want to join us for one of these, consider attending the Dublin Irish Festival next year. It was certainly a joyful time for us!
