Ninefold Festival

Due to COVID-19, the 2021 Ninefold Festival will again be held online via Zoom – Saturday and Sunday, September 18-19.  We welcome all women to join us in this space of learning and sharing, and hope to be able to be in person again in 2022!

The theme for our online festival is Avalon: Isle of Healing, Isle of the Dead.

This event is sponsored by the Sisterhood of Avalon, and is open to all women, especially those with an interest in British and Celtic Paganism, Welsh Traditions, Druidism, Goddess Spirituality, and Wise Women’s Ways.

Ninefold Festival features engaging speakers and teachers, talented musical guests, unique vendors, all alongside the warmth of community as women gather together from around the world to circle our festival hearthfire!

The Ninefold Vision

The Sisterhood of Avalon’s Ninefold festival embodies a vision dedicated to creating diverse community in sacred space, building bonds of sisterhood across cultures, and celebrating the unique reflection of the Divine Feminine in every woman. With an emphasis on the Avalonian Tradition and aligned teachings, the Ninefold Festival seeks to hold a space where Avalon’s gifts of safety, healing, and sovereignty can be experienced in the here and now. The Sisterhood welcomes all women to participate in the mysteries of the Ninefold – whether for a weekend…or a lifetime.

Founded in 1995, the Sisterhood of Avalon is a non-profit organization with international membership that focuses on Celtic women’s mysteries and which seeks to balance intuitive wisdom with scholastic achievement. Among its activities, the SOA sponsors the Avalonian Thealogical Seminary; facilitates international training intensives; hosts spiritual pilgrimages to sacred sites in the UK and Ireland through Mythic Seeker; publishes devotional anthologies, keepsake datebooks, and religious calendars through Ninth Wave Press, as well as “The Tor Stone” a digital Journal of Women’s Spirituality, and “The Barge”, our member newsletter; hosts an annual Celtic women’s spirituality gathering called the Ninefold Festival; connects with women around the world through AvaCon, an online conference; and provides a variety of learning opportunities both through local hearth groups and online community support.
