Spring Feast & Bizarre Bazaar



Welcome to VWP’s Annual Spring Feast and Bizarre Bazaar


A magical evening of community celebration

to share a spring-inspired potluck meal

and enjoy this poignant opportunity to let go and receive.


Spring Feast:  As the earth renews herself, we give thanks for the new life in all of its forms – nourishing food, medicine, new generations being born, and beauty abound.  What if we could make a wish for the future, a wish for all that is vital to continue to thrive for generations to come?  Our Spring Feast is a celebration of this promise.  We invite you to bring a potluck dish to share that is inspired by spring – perhaps it contains food you harvested, or flowers that you gently picked; perhaps it is a dish that carries a tradition in your family for this time of year.  We welcome your creative imaginings!

Bizarre Bazaar:  Imagine a time when many families and tribes would come from far off places to trade food, art, clothing, materials, etc, that were common in one place, but rare in another. Imagine a time where people traded what was needed to nourish their bodies, to make things of beauty, and to deepen culture.

Our Bizarre Bazaar is just that sort of evening.  We encourage you to bring hand-made soaps, canning projects, baskets, skulls, pelts, feathers, carvings, field guides, outdoor clothing and equipment, outdoor tools, services, baked goods, commissioned art, a story, a song, and anything else that is in the spirit of our nature based inspirations.  As a family you will lay out your treasures on your blanket and have a chance to trade amongst your extended community.
