SunFest XXXIV

SunFest XXXIV:
June 20th-23rd, 2024
Location Forthcoming for 2024

A letter from Ffynnon:

Dear Ffynnon Community,

Ffynnon is at a critical point in its development.

As you know, our goal is to create and maintain a private, outdoor space for our Community “Where Art, Spirit & Nature Meet.”

And you are our Community.

That’s why we want to be transparent with you about what’s happening—because it will require some temporary changes to the programs available from Ffynnon.

We are currently working with the Land Development Services folks of Columbia County (where Ffynnon is located) in order to be able to make Ffynnon a “private park.”

The good news is that private park status will enable us to do everything Ffynnon wants to do, including expanding our offerings to the Community, and eventually providing more and better facilities. 

The bad news is that going through this process means we must temporarily stop holding events on Ffynnon property until we establish the private park status.

The okay news is that Ffynnon, as an organization, will do everything we can to continue offering Community gatherings and celebrations—just not on Ffynnon land (until we achieve private park status).

What does this mean?

  • It means that we will be holding Ostara at a different outdoor location. Where has not yet been established and we’re working on it. We will keep you in the loop.

  • It means that Beltane will be moved to a different location and the ritual itself will be changing. We’re not sure where yet, or what form it may take, but we are working on that too, and will keep you informed.

  • If you are already registered for either Ostara or Beltane, please watch your email for separate communication from us regarding what this means for you.

Right now, that’s all it means. As we said, we are working with the County to take all the steps needed (and they are many) to make Ffynnon a viable resource for all of us in the very near future.

Thank you for your past support—and your important support now—as we make these vital changes. We promise to keep you up to date on what’s happening. We’ll also let you know about new event locations as they get settled, as well as how you may be able to help in Ffynnon’s ongoing growth.

 If there is anything that we as a community know how to do, it is to come together…both in times of celebration and in times of need. Our energies, combined and individual, need to be pointed towards this goal and this progression of steps that will get us there. Please do your magic, in all its forms. 

We only ask that you not direct frustration (magical or otherwise) towards the county. We know transition is complicated and that this situation may bring up a lot of emotions for folks (it certainly has for us on the board). But they are our partners in this effort. Help us instead build that bridge and continue to enrich the positive working relationship we have with them.

And, if you are able, please consider donating financially towards this effort. This is an exciting moment for Ffynnon, but it is also going to be a financially challenging period in our growth. Any support, whether it be membership or a one-time donation, is deeply appreciated. 

With gratitude for all you do,

–  The Ffynnon Board
