Samhain Celebrations

Group 1: Boyneside Samhain, Ireland

boyneside samhain festival


The Veil between the worlds is thin
Our hearts reach cross the sea of time
To bring our loved ones in
Samhain, Samhain we honor all our kin
We honor those who’ve gone before
As the Great Wheel turns again

- Lisa Thiel
Join us for a fun-filled day as we celebrate Samhain!
* Party Potluck * Costumes Raffle * Shopping * Psychic Readings *
Bring a nibble to share with everyone. There will be a bubbling cauldron full of delicious mulled cider to wash it down.
And, of course, we’ll end the festival with a beautiful Samhain ritual.
As always, we are collecting donations for Jurassic Bark Rescue. This festival we are focusing on collecting new or gently used bedding, hoodies, gloves and socks. As an extra incentive, bring a pack of hand warmers and in exchange, you’ll get a FREE RAFFLE TICKET!!! And, of course, cash donations are always welcome!
Vendor registration is open. Contact Susanna Hill, Event Planner, for more information.
Entry to the Festival is always free. Come out and join the fun!!
