Upcoming Event: May Day

In Celebration of Spring

Join Revels Music Director Erin McKibben and special guest Josh Jenkins in a celebration of the coming of Spring.  Join in singing seasonal songs, learning a traditional English Country dance, and making floral garlands, nosegays, and wreaths. The afternoon culminates in the traditional maypole ritual:  two circles of participants walk in opposite directions around the maypole, holding colorful ribbon streamers and creating intricate patterns as they weave to the inside and then the outside of each other. Admission is free!
