2017 Lughnasadh Celebration ~ Sunday, August 6th

@SHotR and @LSS1274 are teaming up to celebrate the Celtic holiday of Lughnadsadh and Reek Sunday (aka Garland Sunday) with an all-day event on Sunday August 6th! While July 30 is the traditional Reek Sunday, Sunday August 6 falls within Lughnasadh this year, and we’re excited to host (the 1st annual?!) celebration of Lughnadsadh!

We’re thrilled that Kelly and Emily Ann Thompson will be performing an evening concert!

The all-day celebration includes a baked goods contest (professional and non-professional categories with Ribbon Prizes), a wreath-making station to create decorate wreaths, Open Mic (stand-up comedy, music, poetry, recitations, whatever!), and a craft beer tasting ~ beer is, of course, grain-based, so it fits right into our Lughnasadh celebration theme!

There will be a $20 participation fee at the wreath-making station (“ingredients” for wreath/garland-making are provided, but feel free to bring any supplies of your own or personal items you want to attach). There is $5 entry fee for the baked goods contest. Baked goods entry fee and wreath-making fee are payable upon arrival ~ you do NOT need to pay in advance; just come on by!

The Schedule: 
Open Mic for standup, music, & readings available from 11:00am (Open Mic will end around 6:00pm for Baked Goods Awards)
11:00am – 5:00pm bring your Baked Goods for our contest! (professional & non-professional categories with Ribbon Prizes; contest fee $5)
11:00am – 5:00pm create a wreath at our Wreath-making Station (fee $20)
Baked Goods Awards Announcements ~ around 6:00pm
Please contact Alys at loganstreetsanctuary@gmail.com with any questions.

Anyone who wants to participate in the Open Mic can just show up and sign in!

About Lughnasadh and Reek/Garland Sunday:

In the Celtic and Christian calendars, Lughnasadh is celebrated the first week of August. Lughnasadh is (roughly) pronounced “Loo-na-saagd” and sometimes called Lammas.  It’s the time to celebrate the first harvest of the year and recognize that the hot summer days will soon come to an end (maybe not so much here in Indiana!).  Lughnasadh literally means the “funeral games of Lugh” (pronounced “Loo”; “funeral games” were Celtic festivals of feasting, songs, and contests).  The holiday honors Lugh, the Celtic sun-god of light, but it also celebrates his mythical foster mother Tailtiu, in whose honor the funeral games were held.  Reek Sunday (Irish: Domhnach na Cruaiche) or “Garland Sunday” is an annual day of pilgrimage in Ireland.  On the last Sunday in July, pilgrims climb Ireland’s holiest mountain, Croagh Patrick (Irish: Cruach Phádraig, meaning “Patrick’s Stack”).   Croagh Patrick, nicknamed “The Reek“, is a 2,507 ft mountain and an important pilgrimage site in County Mayo in Ireland. The annual pilgrimage has been held for about 1,500 years; it is in honor of Saint Patrick, who, according to tradition, spent 40 days fasting on the mountain in the year 441. Each year, between 15,000 and 30,000 pilgrims participate, many in bare feet; the ascension takes two hours on average, and it takes one and a half hours to descend.

This event is FREE to the public; donations can be made securely online via our Square Market store. Sacred Heart of the Rose is a 501(c)(3) non-denominational religious organization and Logan Street Sanctuary (LSS) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) not-for-profit cultural arts organization.

LSS accepts cash donations in a glass bowl to support our facility, and offers t-shirts, artwork, 2017 The Polk Street Review books, and annual supporting memberships and donation options via our secure Square Market store.
