2019 Firefly Gathering


  • Deerfields Campgrounds 01 Watagnee Trail Horse Shoe, NC 28742 USA (map)

The 12th annual Firefly Gathering will take place June 13-16, 2019 at Deerfields in Mills River, NC, just 30 minutes outside of Asheville.

We gather each summer to learn and celebrate the skills necessary to live with the Earth. Our family-friendly content and culture bring together folks of all ages.

Each day is full of workshops spanning wilderness survival skills to permaculture, plant identification to cooking over fire, cow milking to bowl carving, basket weaving to blacksmithing. Through our time together at Firefly, we not only share skills to connect to the land, we connect also with ourselves, one another, our ancestors, and our future generations.

Please note, our magical gathering at Deerfields has no cell phone service and no wifi available. Plan to bring cash or check for materials fees, food vendors, and craft vendors.
