2:00 Registration Opens
Please make the registration booth your first stop when you arrive at Lammasfest! This is where you will choose your campsite, receive your event program and site token, and sign up for volunteer shifts to help the weekend run smoothly. If you have any special needs, this is also where you will find assistance. If you plan to arrive outside of the scheduled registration hours, please let us know in advance.

4:00 PM: Workshops
6:00 PM: Community Harvest Feast
Join us on Friday evening to share a potluck feast. The Lammasfest Committee provides the main course – hamburgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers (with buns and condiments of course). The rest of the community brings sides and desserts to make it a meal. Please bring an ingredient list for your contribution, to aid those with allergies in choosing their food.
8:00 Registration Closes
Please make advance arrangements if you plan to arrive after 8:00pm on Friday by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
8:00 Opening Ritual
The Lammasfest Committee presents the Opening Ritual each year to welcome the return of the tribes. Ritual space will remain open, and the ritual fire burning, throughout the weekend. Please be respectful while in the ritual space.

9:00 Drumming Circle begins
Lammasfest is lucky to have a gifted group of drummers in attendance each year. The drum circle will begin as the opening ritual ends. If you are an experienced drummer, we hope you will join us. If you are a brand new drummer (or anywhere in between), we hope you will join us! Prefer a rhythm instrument instead of a drum – bring it! Sometimes firespinners even appear…
9:30 Candlelight Labyrinth
A night-time walk through our double spiral labyrinth, lit by hundreds of candles. There are also meditation areas for your use. The labyrinth is located about 200 yards from the Cottonwood site. Please help us to maintain a meditative atmosphere by keeping voices very low and speaking only when necessary.
12:00 (midnight) Quiet Hours Begin
The Army Corps of Engineers graciously extends our drumming time by delaying the start of park quiet hours until midnight. At midnight, drumming and other loud activities must end, but chanting, storytelling, and general socializing can continue far into the night. Please be considerate of those who do wish to sleep.
