Autumn Equinox at Stonehenge Aotearoa

In the ancient world the Autumn Equinox was one of the most important days in the year. It marked a time of change in the seasons and the tasks and lives of the people. It was the time of the Harvest Festival. To the druids it was known as Alban Elfed, Mabon in the Wiccan tradition.

In keeping with ancient traditions we will be holding a special evening at Stonehenge Aotearoa. It begins with Tales of the Autumn Equinox from our Storyteller. This is followed by a procession into the Circle of Stones and a sunset ceremony which will include meditation, percussion, singing, chanting and dancing. Weather permitting we will see the Sun set on the Equinox Heel Stone in the west. After the celebrations there will be socialising and a shared meal. Bring a plate.

Fees: Adults $16, Seniors $13, students (13-17 years) $13, pre-teens $8
