We are very excited to announce that Loran Magie Mystique will be returning to Firelight Gathering! Loran was present at the very first Firelight and he makes his grand return to the 2016 edition.
Here’s just a taste of what Loran can bring to add to the magic of Firelight!
The late, great Isaac Bonewits once designed a tee similar to this one to describe what it’s like being an organizer in Pagan community (this redesign was made with kind permission from Phaedra Bonewits). Wear it proudly, but learn to duck a lot!
You can see (and order) the original design here at Cafe Express.
Profits from this Teespring fundraiser go to help fund the Firelight Gathering Festival, a wee Pagan festival that takes place in Ontario (Canada) in mid-August.
The snow is melting, the sun is out, and the land is warming! These are the surest signs that Firelight Gathering is approaching!

Just as a reminder, for the 2014 edition of Firelight Gathering, we cannot allow dogs the site during the festival. The reason for this decision is due to the Insurance costs required. We apologize for any inconvenience.

And there’s a Facebook Event page for it, so you know it’s for real.
I awoke relatively early to the sounds of birds and frogs and the rustling of leaves, and after journalling, wandered barefoot in the warm morning sun, through dew moistened fields just taking it all in. There were very few up and about, so I felt I had the whole place to myself. I don’t believe my smile left my face all weekend, even in sleep!

Thank you Elizabeth for writing such a wonderful blog entry. We’re honored that you shared your first festival experience with us at Firelight Gathering.
You can read the rest of her blog entry at The Firefly House.
Final count for the first edition of the Firelight Gathering Festival (August 2013) in terms of attendees (including Day Passes Weekends, and Overnights): 108. That covers all the expenses and gives us some seed money for next year’s event.
Thanks to everyone who decided to take a chance on this new Fest. You are all pioneers and trailblazers! Not to be overly dramatic, but if Firelight Gathering is a success, it’s because you all made it beautiful. Thank you.
