I know this event may be a bit far for some of you, but the Milwaukee Pagan Unity Council (MPUC) has been working their cottontails off on this event and I thought I'd share this great resource.
The festival has 3 tracks of workshops all day, plus a children's track with kids activities, rituals, and workshops. ADF will host the opening ritual and I'll be hosting the closing ritual in the ecstatic participatory style. I'll also be offering a workshop on tools for Pagan leaders and community builders.
It's free to attend, though donations are accepted. Enjoy, and spring abundance to you!
