The autumn equinox, Cónocht an Fhómhair or Mabon, is the second of the three pagan celtic harvest festivals. It is named after the Welsh God of Youth; Mabon ap Modron (the son of the Earth Mother goddess, Modron). It is also known as Harvest Home, and to modern Druids as Alban Elued (‘light of the water’). This falls yearly between the 21st and 24th of September.
It aligns broadly with traditional European harvest festivals which give thanksgiving and historically celebrate a successful cereal harvest and the filling of food stores for the winter.
Taking the theme of ‘awakening youth’ this three hour event, which is Alcohol free, will be a collaboration with Artists and Facilitators to encourage the Youth of Kerry to celebrate the beginning of Autumn with a great line-up of Kerry finest Musicians, Bands and Artists.
This event is part of Culture Night Late 2022 and is supported by the Arts Council
The event is also made possible by Kerry County Council Arts Department & Tralee Municipal District
