The Waldorf May Faire


Throughout history and in all civilizations, there are rituals reflecting nature’s rhythms, important transitions, and significant moments in the cycle of the year. Nowadays, festivals offer a beautiful way of living into the cycle of the year;  we can feel enlivened and strengthened by participating in seasonal rituals.  When we reverently enter into active participation with the cycle of the year, we can feel nourished through a deepened community bond, as well.

The May Faire is a festive event honoring the change of the seasons from darkness to light. Some say it began as a pagan tradition, while others say it includes the celebration of the advent of Spring.  At Highland Hall, we have embraced moving beyond a strictly Eurocentric approach and now sometimes offer other cultural dances, too.
