The Aquarian Tabernacle Church
presents the 22nd Annual

Hekate’s Sickle Festival

Come to Hekate’s Sickle, where you are lovingly adopted into a Celtic Clan and prepared to journey across the veil into the land of Faerie and Magic. Gather with the Lady Hekate, as she opens the gates to the enchanted paths between the Worlds. Do you have the courage to journey into the mystical forest and come face to face with the Celtic Gods? Be supported by the love of family and friends as you discover the messages delivered specifically for you from your ancestors and receive gifts from the Divine.

Registration fees include accommodations and all meals.

Please join us for this amazing, very spiritual, event.

Have you ever been to an ATC Festival? These are not your typical pagan festival. This is a themed, and focused, magical weekend, of which there is no comparison. If you’ve never been to an ATC festival, you owe it to yourself to go. If you’re Celtic, this is a MUST!!! Tell your Friends.
