About the event

Ring in the New Year with Dance, DJs, Performance, Ritual, Art, and Creative Community Connection! Join us for a festive evening of Dance, DJs, ritual, performance, and community! This will be our 5th year in a row offering a special gathering to celebrate and honor the year that has passed while we set intention and party down for the year to come!

As always, we create a unique blend of sacredness and ceremony combined with  play, celebration, and creative expression. We will have a special wall for you to write your intentions and prayers for 2024. Art stations for vision boards and soul collage. Plus a fire ceremony for letting go of anything from 2023 that no longer serves!

And of course we dance all night! Our DJs will each play a one and a half hour set with a special performances by local artists between them.
