Ninefold Festival

2023 Ninefold Festival is back in person! Join us in Hinsdale, MA September 15-17, 2023! Registration is open! The theme for our 2023 festival, finally completing our in-person journey of the three realms, is Realm of Land.

This annual event is sponsored by the Sisterhood of Avalon and is open to all women, especially those with an interest in British and Celtic Paganism, Welsh Traditions, Druidism, Goddess Spirituality, and Wise Women’s Ways.


Ninefold Festival features engaging speakers and teachers, talented musical guests, unique vendors, all alongside the warmth of community as women gather together from around the world to circle our festival hearthfire!


The Ninefold Vision

The Sisterhood of Avalon’s Ninefold festival embodies a vision dedicated to creating diverse community in sacred space, building bonds of sisterhood across cultures, and celebrating the unique reflection of the Divine Feminine in every woman. With an emphasis on the Avalonian Tradition and aligned teachings, the Ninefold Festival seeks to hold a space where Avalon’s gifts of safety, healing, and sovereignty can be experienced in the here and now. The Sisterhood welcomes all women to participate in the mysteries of the Ninefold – whether for a weekend…or a lifetime.


Founded in 1995, the Sisterhood of Avalon is a non-profit organization with international membership that focuses on Celtic women’s mysteries and which seeks to balance intuitive wisdom with scholastic achievement. Among its activities, the SOA sponsors the Avalonian Thealogical Seminary; facilitates international training intensives; hosts spiritual pilgrimages to sacred sites in the UK and Ireland through Mythic Seeker; publishes devotional anthologies, keepsake datebooks, and religious calendars through Ninth Wave Press, as well as “The Tor Stone” a digital Journal of Women’s Spirituality, and “The Barge”, our member newsletter; hosts an annual Celtic women’s spirituality gathering called the Ninefold Festival; connects with women around the world through AvaCon, an online conference; and provides a variety of learning opportunities both through local hearth groups and online community support.
