Vermont Releaf Collective & Every Town Space Presents: Equinox Festival 2023

September 23, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 10:30 pm

It is rare and far between that we get a day to celebrate both place and culture in a way that hasn’t been co-opted by a legacy and history of white patriarchal supremacy. And so in the spirit of Afro and Indigenous futurisms, we create new celebrations and reclaim old ones that have been taken from us.

We are incredibly excited to invite you to the New Suns Equinox Festival, a celebration that is the culmination of a collaboration between RELEAF and Every Town. The Equinox Festival will celebrate the seasons transitioning from summer to Fall while centering BIPOC folks of the Global majority in and from Vermont. We will have skill shares, communal food, stories, and laughter. We will then end the day with a concert led by an array of Black, Brown, and Indigenous musical artists.

It is important that we make this event accessible for all types of families and as such there will be afternoon childcare available for everyone who needs it. We will also have a potluck in the late afternoon, and we welcome food from all different cultural and regional backgrounds.
