What is Midsummer?

The Shenandoah Midsummer Festival is a full weekend of Earth-Centered spirituality and fun held in beautiful Gore, Virginia at The Land Celebration. The focus of the event is to strengthen ties in the Earth-based and metaphysical spiritual community and to raise awareness of these wonderfully diverse belief systems. Toward that end, the Shenandoah Midsummer Festival includes a variety of workshops, presentations, and religious ceremonies that showcase different aspects of the various spiritual paths that fall under the umbrella term of "Paganism," all in an open, accepting, family-friendly environment. Additionally, the festival includes a wide variety of spiritually oriented vendors, as well as nightly musical performances by both local and national musical talent. Our retreat attracts people from all backgrounds, orientations and walks of life. The only thing we ask is that you have an open mind and be nonjudgmental.

Neopagans celebrate the Summer Solstice, or Litha, as the most bountiful day of the year--the day the sun shines the longest. Midsummer celebrations are common the world over, especially in Northern Europe, and feature many of the activities our own Midsummer celebration includes--bonfires, feasting, singing and dancing. At its heart, Midsummer is a celebration of light and life, an opportunity to give thanks for the bounty of summer.
