where magic happens
this annual, 15 year-old festival is a full circle celebration of our abundant and nutritiously rich pepper. we buy hundreds of pounds at market value from local farmers of various varieties of this locally and sustainably grown superfood. we then deliver peppers to chefs and beverage makers who then concoct hundreds of samples of pepper dishes and drinks for the community to sample at the event while connecting and enjoying live music.
a 7-year faire that approaches death and dying for the living when the veil is the thinnest and our spirits are near. the flow of the event begins with slow, body-centered grief work through integration sessions of meditation, writing, art, movement, and various other healing modalities. after metabolizing some heartache, we move into celebration with speakers, poetry, expression, food, and dancing under the moonlight.
