These are brief descriptions of the rituals to be performed.
  • Opening Ritual:  Participants in the opening ritual will walk in procession around the APPD festival area beginning at the northernmost point (the corner of College and Clayton near Subway), proceeding to the East, the South, the West, and back to the North, and then to the center. There will a brief invocation at each cardinal compass point and the center, during which deities and other powers will be invoked to bless and protect the festival area. This is a version of the common (though not universal) Pagan practice of casting a circle to create a space for a ritual, adapted for a large outdoor festival.
  • Main Ritual:  TBA
  • Closing Ritual:  At the end of the festival, participants in the closing ritual will again process from the north station, this time in reverse, going from North to West to South to East, back to North and then to the Center, to release the circle created in the opening ritual.
