The Gathering Festival is now over. See you in 2018.

Tuesday June 20, 2017 from 6 PM to Sunset. The Gathering Place Association and Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret bring the Summer Solstice festivities to celebrate this time of renewal and bloom!

Revelry begins at Emery Barnes Park (Davie and Seymour St.) featuring: Ivana Kupala wreath making with Beverly Dobrinsky, The Carnival Band, Iranian Tirgan Wristband workshop, Wild herb collecting and rope making, Gamelan Bike Bike, Zlatna Mountain, Singing and Dancing by Tiddley Cove!

Then follow the procession from Emery Barnes Park with giant puppets, stilters and the Carnival Band to David Lam Park at the water’s edge, where we will tip our hats to the longest day of the year.
