Celebrate With Us

Welcome to the Annual Imbolc Festival being held at Panthers' Gate in Berthoud, Colorado. For several years, we have held this special event for the community, providing an altar for those who wish to present offerings and fire entertainment to honor Celtic fire and fertility through transformation.


This year, in addition to some of our past years' activities, we are expanding community by holding a drumming circle and fire water ceremony. We will have Wild Mountain Kesh and Piscin & Luch providing authentic live Celtic music following a fire circus performance with Augment Entertainment, and we have a special surprise honoring Wadruna style music as a transition into our drumming circle. 

There will be a vendor fair featuring local vendors at our Berthoud location, whereby the community can support these artists, vendors, and healers in continuing to serve the community in the coming year.

Why We Celebrate Imbolc

Imbolc is the mid-point between Yule and Ostara, and one of the three Fire Festivals. It is a celebration of beginnings, community, and coming out of hibernation after the deep of winter! Being that we are a root school, we honor this festival to further the tradition of the first seed, the first egg, the first blossom of fertility, where Imbolc represents the setting forth of promises renewed.

We wish to inspire hope for the spring's energy, to help all who gather here to feel empowered throughout the year of 2023 and to look forward to the brighter and warmer days ahead.
