Welcome to the Firelight Gathering Pagan Festival website.

Firelight Gathering is small, intimate, cozy Pagan gathering nestled in the welcoming spirit of Whispering Pines, a campground in Eastern Ontario. It started with a yearning to return to Whispering Pines to camp with a spiritual community and blossomed into much, much more quite overnight.

About Firelight

Firelight Gathering 2023
August 17-20, 2023
Facebook event

Mission Statement: Firelight Gathering is designed to be a Pagan relax-athon. It has minimal programming and maximum relaxation. People are invited to reconnect with old friends, make new friends, and share in the joys of simple re-connections with nature and the company of awesome people. Firelight features nightly bonfires, drumming, dancing, singing, a community potluck, swimming, workshops, vendors, and a Bardic!

In the Firelight, you’ll realize that you are never alone and that we all enjoy the heat and the light of community.

If you’ve never attended a Pagan Festival before, this fest is a great place to start. You’ll make connections, discover new ideas, and have your old ideas challenged and expanded, all in the blessed and sacred presence of the Gods.

Note: Although we cannot allow pets on site (due to insurance costs), Service Dogs are allowed as long as they have their identifying tags and/or vests. If your Service Dog does not have a tag or vest, please provide the necessary documentation.

Firelight Gathering est un petit rassemblement Paien intime et douillet bien abrité dans l’esprit chaleureux de Whispering Pines, un terrain de camping situé dans l’est de l’Ontario. Tout cela a débuté dans le désir de retourner à Whispering Pines pour camper avec une communauté spirituel, mais a évolué en quelque chose de beaucoup plus grandiose du jour au lendemain..

Enoncé De Mission:

Firelight Gathering est un rassemblement païen fait pour relaxer. Il y a le minimum de planification et le maximum de relaxation. Les gens sont invités à reconnecter avec de vieux amis, de s’en faire de nouveaux, et de partager la joie de la simple reconnexion avec la nature en compagnie de gens extraordinaires. Dans le Firelight (la Lueur du Feu), vous réaliserez que vous n’êtes jamais seuls et que nous apprécions tous la chaleur et la lueur de notre communauté.

Si vous n’avez jamais participé a un rassemblement Paien auparavant, Firelight est un excellent endroit ou debuter. Vous allex faire de nouvelles connections, découvrir de nouvelles idées, et vous allez voir vos vielles idées et habitudes changée et evoluées, tout dans la présence sacrée et bénite des Dieux et Déesses.

Notez-Bien: Nous ne pouvons accepter la présence d’animaux de compagnie sur le site (du au cout élevé de l’assurance), mais nous acceptons les animaux de service tant et aussi longtemps qu’ils sont identifiés par leurs vestes our leurs insignes.
