Elf Fest is usually the largest festival of the year at Lothlorien. It is a Spring celebration, with rituals, fire dance performances and general drumming and dancing around a central fire in the Thunder Dome after dark, and a variety of events in the daylight hours.
Past activities have included a Labrynth, a blessing of the cars, late May Maypole dancing, spiral dancing, saunas/sweats, plant walks with the Herb Lady, women's circles, magic shows and musical performances ranging from madrigals to heavy metal. There have also been workshops in art, animal spirit guides, dowsing, solar power, drum repair and etiquette, ocarina, dome cover updates, belly dance, poi, mask making, Celtic Wicca, rhythm drumming and ecological gardening. Meanwhile there is plenty of time to relax with friends and family, swim in the creek and share food and conversation around the many camp fires. Each year is different and we are open to new ideas from any tradition.
ElvinHOME runs a Cauldron Cafe for breakfast and sells ice to campers. A variety of merchants also set up tents and sell their wares at the festival from clothes to ornaments to snacks to books to massages.
