This is a public event. Women, two-spirited people, and those who identify with feminine energy from all cultures are welcome to participate. All ages are welcome. 

Participation is free, but space is limited. 


A Full Moon Ceremony is a traditional Indigenous spiritual practice in which women gather to honour and seek guidance from Grandmother Moon. Full moon ceremonies are practiced in many different Indigenous cultures and may differ from place to place. Ceremonies may be held on the Full Moon or 2–4 days before or after, depending on the teachings of the community or Nation. They are usually led by an Elder or Knowledge Keeper and include drumming, singing, and tobacco offerings to the fire. A potluck style feast is often part of the gathering, with everyone bringing something to share.

What to bring:

  • Limited bench seating is available. For your comfort and additional seating, please consider bringing a lawn chair or blanket if you want to sit closer to the fire.
  • Drums, rattles, and/or pipes are encouraged if you have them.
  • Ribbon skirts are optional.
  • If you are able, please bring something to share for the feast and your own “feast bag” containing a reusable plate, cutlery, and cup (to avoid using disposable ones).
  • Tobacco and cloth will be provided to make tobacco offerings. If you have cloth in your spirit colours, feel free to bring your own.

Public washrooms and a water fountain are available nearby, inside The Leaf.

This event may be cancelled in the event of dangerous or inclement weather. A cancellation notice will be sent to all registered participants and posted on this web page.
