Winter SolstiCelebration

If you’re in the DFW area, please come out to the 17th annual Winter SolstiCelebration. It is, to the best of our knowledge, the second largest Solstice celebration in the country. This will be my third year as a participant – I’ll be a “wandering Druid”.

Experience the redemptive power of darkness and the regenerative nature of light in Winter SolstiCelebration, the multi-cultural, non-sectarian tradition now in its 17th year.

This year, performers explore the theme of Joy & Wonder through: Song ~ poetry ~ ceremony ~ dance ~ comedy ~ ritual ~ storytelling ~ drumming ~ participatory movement ~ a myriad of musical styles.

New for 2009: Puppetry ~ magic ~ juggling ~ variety performers ~ professional yo-yo artistry.

In the hour before and after the Winter Solstice service, a lively Yule Fest in the lobby hosts roving characters, music, photos with Father Winter and much more.

About John Beckett

I grew up in Tennessee with the woods right outside my back door. Wandering through them gave me a sense of connection to Nature and to a certain Forest God. I’m a Druid graduate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, the Coordinating Officer of the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans and a former Vice President of CUUPS Continental. I’ve been writing, speaking, teaching, and leading public rituals for the past eleven years. I live in the Dallas – Fort Worth area and I earn my keep as an engineer.
