Speakers A - E | F - L | M - R | S - Z | Index
As past attendees of our events already know, we've taken great pains to provide as diverse a line-up of day time Workshops as we can. All speaker appearances are subject to forces beyond our control, check back to confirm your favorites.

In addition to our exciting line-up of nightly & lunchtime concerts, Thursday night is highlighted by the totally irrepressible Bardic Circle. Always wanted to perform on the Starwood Stage (even if only for a few minutes)? Now's your chance! Sign-up sheets will be available on-site.

Midnight Rituals are held in the Main Ritual Area Wednesday through Friday Nights. On Wednesday we have a ritual reminiscent of colonial era Freemasonry led by Shawn Eyer and the Starwood Masonic Valley, Thursday, StoneCreed Grove & Ar nDraiocht Fein: A Druid Fellowship (ADF) perform a Druid Rite of Blessing and Friday night's rite will be led by the Church of All Worlds (CAW).

If rituals aren't your bag, the Pufferdome is your stately Pleasure Palace for after-hours entertainment. Leave those early risers behind and party with the night kin Wednesday through Friday nights.

If you haven't been regaled with tales of our legendary Saturday Night Bonfire, we won't spoil it for you here! Those in the know may be interested in the several ways you can help out.
Meet daily at the location for the Bonfire and learn the beat.
Attend the daily Bonfire Dance rehearsals and learn the dance.
Build and master Giant Puppets, masks, etc. Details on-site.

Remember, last minute changes are unavoidable. Please check back for updated information.
