Tenth Annual Winter Nights in the Poconos

The Tenth Annual Winter Nights in the Poconos will be held in Milford, Pennsylvania from October 15- 17!  Since 2012, this long-running AFA festival has been dedicated to our ancestral mothers, the Disir.  When the harvest is in, the summer plants have died off, and the winter is quickly approaching the veil between the living and dead is said to be at its thinnest.  Again, we will gather to worship our Gods, our Goddesses, and our Ancestral Mothers in the crisp air of mountains as winter sets in. We build upon the success of the Asatru Folk Assembly here in the Northeast by making new friends and renewing old friendships. We look forward to seeing members and friends!

Your registration fee includes all workshops, lectures, meals, cabin lodging, and of course our holy rituals. Only AFA members and vouched-for-guests will be admitted to this event. If you are not an AFA Member you should confirm with the member who is vouching for you that they will do so when asked about your registration. For Member Family and Member Weekend registrations, the AFA pays the processing fees.

Things to know:

Children 17 and under attend for free!
The cabins have bunks. You will need to bring your own bedding and it can get quite chilly at night, so plan accordingly.
Tenting is permitted in the main field.
Dogs are welcome but must be leashed at all times and are not permitted in common indoor areas such as the dining hall.

Under Ash and Oak Kindred

Please join me in welcoming The Under Ash And Oak Kindred of Ohio as the newest Official Kindred of the Asatru Folk Assembly. This is one of the most active group of AFA members that we have in Midgard. They come together several times a month hosting moots, hikes, and field trips to cultural places and the list goes on! Led by Apprentice Folkbuilder Timmy Dumas, Under Ash And Oak is one of the many families that make up the Kindreds of the AFA. These are members and their families that have stepped up to represent our Church and be that welcome matt for those that are coming home. 

Gaining Kindred recognition is not a easy thing, it takes dedication and loyalty and willingness to stand with the AFA at all costs. These Kindreds go through a six month probationary period before joining our family as a official Kindred. Thank you Under Ash And Oak for taking on this responsibility and stepping up to represent us. 

Hail The Under Ash And Oak Kindred!
Hail the Kindreds of the AFA!
Hail the Asatru Folk Assembly!!!

True North Folk Kindred

It is my honor today to announce the True North Folk Kindred of North Dakota as a official Kindred of the Asatru Folk Assembly. Led by Witan Brandy Callahan, this Kindred has been instrumental in helping to get Baldrshof open for our folk and doing lots of the legwork at events and the big ones like Fallfest. They were announced at Fallfest and took their Kindred Oaths in front of their folk gathered there. 

Gaining Kindred recognition is not a easy thing, it takes dedication and willingness to stand with our Church and Family. Thank you True North Folk for stepping up and for all that you do!

Hail the True North Folk!
Hail the Kindreds of the AFA!
Hail the Asatru Folk Assembly!!!
