Samhain 2016

at Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve
near Barneveld, Wisconsin
Coordinated by Ana and Jenn

An old year dies and a new one is born from the ashes!  Samhain is a time of tears and joy, of spooks and giggles, of looking to the past and embracing the future.  Come help us turn the wheel with revelry and reflection.  Circle Sanctuary's Samhain festival is a can't-miss celebration, with annual favorites like the Witches Ball featuring the music of Water Street Bridge, Circle Sanctuary's important Annual Meeting, and the powerful Samhain Ritual.  This festival includes workshops and activities for adults and for families.

Space is limited for this popular festival, so reserve your spot today!

Activities at this year's Samhain include:

  • Friday night's Witches' Ball, featuring Water Street Bridge!
    Water Street BridgeThese veterans of stage and studio blend Celtic, blues, old timey, Americana, sea shanty, pseudo-Slavic, jazz, Creole, art rock, reggae, comedy and original songs into something that can only be described as “eclectic acoustic.” Brandishing an impressive arsenal of musical instruments they bring new life to tales of old, old sounds to tales of today, and twisted takes on tales never meant to be told. Holding true to its original vision, Water Street Bridge remains a creative collective, thriving off the input and participation of a variety of musicians, artists, dancers and poets. Steam powered, funked out... this AIN'T your momma's folk music.
  • Samhain Ritual
  • Circle Sanctuary Annual Meeting on Saturday Morning
  • Workshops & Rituals
  • And much more!
