Edgefield Winery - Sun Celebration Series - Solo Show
2126 SW Halsey St, Troutdale, OR 97060-1026
Her solo McMenamin's Edgefield Sun Celebration Series continues at the Edgefield Winery in Troutdale. A sweet and irreverent, intimate acoustic show in celebration of pagan sun rituals, or Sabbats. Always free, 7 - 9p, 21 and over LUGHNASADH/LAMMAS The festival of the first of the harvests. Lammas is a time of the fullness of Life, and a celebration of the bountiful earth. It is a time of the sacrificial mating of Goddess and God, where the Corn King, given life by the Goddess and tasting of Her love is sacrificed and transformed into bread and ale which feeds us. The main themes of Lammas may therefore be seen as thanksgiving to the Goddess for Her bountiful harvest, stating our hopes for what we wish to harvest (for Lammas is the very beginning of the harvest), sacrifice, transformation, and a sharing of the energy of the Corn King. The Sabbats are seasonal festivals which mark the turning of the Wheel of the Year and the cycles of nature. Most western pagans celebrate eight sabbats; the Summer and Winter Solstices, the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes and the quarter days or fire festivals - Samhain, Imbolc, Beltaine and Lughnasadh.
