Festivals & Events
As we move through the year, you'll find a number of our episodes come from festivals, rituals, and other special events. We're organizing them here by event so you can more easily figure out what we were going to (or coming from) when we recorded the episode, and so you can seriously consider going to one of these in the future!
N.B.: Not all titles will be released yet, so this page may serve as a "sneak peak" of things that are coming up.
Trillium Spring Gathering
Hosted by a number of ADF Groves in the Southeast Region, this event is held in Cross Junction, Virginia, usually the third weekend in April. Trillium is the classic ADF festival, full of good friends and good conversation, and it's no wonder to us why we had the idea for this podcast to start here.

The ADF Clergy Retreat
Each year, the ADF Clergy get together to do ritual (and administrative) work. While a lot of the discussions that happen within the retreat remain unreleased, the discussions that surround the retreat are fair game. Because we do a lot of work together, there's a lot of interesting things that crop up.
