Summerland 2020: New Beginnings

Summerland 2020 will be virtual

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Camp Clifton will not be opening during summer 2020, and as such we’ve been forced to cancel the Summerland Festival as an in-person event. However, we know that Summerland is a deeply-loved part of your summer, as it is ours. Three Cranes Grove has a long history of doing our work of druidry through the internet, and we’re playing to our strengths in proposing a virtual festival.

Summerland 2020: New Beginnings will be an all-day virtual festival on Saturday, August 15, featuring workshops on a variety of topics by presenters from across the country, a public ritual on Friday night, a highlighted session on consent midday Saturday (also open to the public), and a virtual bardic circle to conclude the festivities Saturday evening.


Registration is now open! Visit our registration page for more information on pricing, discounts for financial hardship, etc.

Schedule of Workshops and Events

In addition to an opening ritual on Friday night and a highlighted presentation on by Rev. Missy Ashton and Rev. William Ashton, “Beyond ‘Yes Means Yes’: Building a Culture of Consent,” both of which will be free and open to the public, we have also confirmed a varied slate of workshops and presentations, throughout the day, not to mention our beloved Summerland Bardic Night. Check out our full schedule of events!

About the Summerland Festival

Summerland Festival is a long-standing Pan-Pagan Festival held every August at Camp Clifton, near Yellow Springs, Ohio. The folk are welcome to enjoy a variety of workshops, children’s activities, bardic open mic, and socialization, with the festival culminating with the main ritual on Saturday, followed by a pot luck dinner. Every year, there is music, laughter, and fellowship, in a comfortable, serene camp. The festival has played host to ordinations, initiations, and celebrations for many years, and we look forward to continuing this proud tradition through this year’s theme: New Beginnings, even as we embark on yet another new beginning of virtual festivaling.

A Culture of Consent

Three Cranes Grove, ADF works within a culture of consent at all of our events.  All attendees will be required to agree to our Code of Conduct during the registration process.   There are also additional expectations for presenters, ritualists, and organizers within the policy. Additionally, a workshop on Consent Culture will be offered during the festival.  All are encouraged to attend.
