Registration and Logistical Details

CascadiaFire is a self-organizing living system, a collective organism. There is no “hired staff”; together, we staff the preparation and realization of this group event. We, the participants, are co-creating and operating this magickal gathering. Participants will work together preparing, running and disbanding the event site and operations.

  • ELDERS (65+ years old) / $100
  • TEENS (12-17 years old) / $100
  • CHILDREN (under 12 years old) are free

CascadiaFire can only accept payment via PayPal. A credit card or debit card can be used through PayPal or you can use your PayPal account. No payment can be accepted for CascadiaFire at the event.

Work trade and scholarship opportunities welcome you in this Circle. Work trade valued at $15 per hour; onsite and other preparatory work is our priority with work trade.

Dragons’ Gate Gardens, the event site, will require direct payment during onsite check-in of $20 for each participant 18 years of age and older or $5 for teens (13-17). No fee for those 12 and younger. This annual fee enables CascadiaFire to use this event site and offers specific membership benefits.
We feed one another.


  • Sponsor: experienced in Fire Circle(s); can sponsor a Friend
  • Friend: new to Fire Circle community, brought in through and with a Sponsor
  • Newcomer: new to Fire Circle community, needing a Sponsor; will need to answer question in Registration response box and seek out someone to be a Sponsor

Sponsoring someone at CascadiaFire is a significant act of friendship, responsibility and community. As a Sponsor you are expected to: Be present at the event, for the entire duration of the time that your invited Friend is present. Be clear and explicit with your Friend about our policies regarding what behavior is accepted and avoided at our gatherings; this site’s FAQ section addresses many of the most common concerns. Take responsibility for making sure your Friend learns about our fire circle culture and etiquette. Some key topics include: taking conversations outside the circle, not smoking in or near the circle, leaving intoxicants at home, etc. As a Sponsor you are required to bring your Friend to the Welcoming Circle and Orientation. Walk around the circle with them and explain the architecture, orientation and methods of our sacred space. Check in periodically with your Friend throughout the event, to see how they’re doing and if they need anything. If your Friend needs support during a challenging moment do your best to hold space for them, guide them to a safe place, or otherwise support them.

You are responsible for carrying out these agreements. If you are unable to do so, you are still invited to attend but please do not invite or bring anyone who hasn’t been to a Family of Fire event previously. However, finding another Sponsor for them is an option. Our intention for the CascadiaFire is to have a group of people who co-create the Magick and celebrate the Mysteries in a responsible and respectful way. Sharing these practices and understanding these agreements enables us to move safely into a deeper experience. CascadiaFire is an open community and we are growing together through these shared experiences. Your friends and family are welcome. Sponsorship enriches everyone’s experience and deepens the relationships that are our living community, our Family of Fire and Water in Cascadia.

If you do not have a sponsor, the registration form provides a place to declare your intentions and aspirations. The CascadiaFire event group is a good place to post a request for a sponsor. Connecting and weaving our relationships is a central function of CascadiaFire and the Cascadia Vortex community.

If you are a newcomer or just an enthusiast, be sure to be at the Orientation on Thursday.

Parking for cars and RVs/campers will be available at the site. Sites for RVs with generators will be located away from shared spaces such as Circle and Gathering Space. Only the driver needs to pay the vehicle fee during registration.
You are invited to bicycle to CascadiaFire. Directions will be provided in your registration confirmation email. Connect with friends and ride together. Bring your lock.

CascadiaFire is a bring your own and food sharing event. Not only do hearty meals nourish and ground us for ceremony and creative activities, these shared meals are central to the community building that will grow long beyond this event.  As we enter the harvest season together, we will express gratitude for and celebrate the abundance of this living planet. Share your bounty of feast, fun, art, music and magick.

We will share dinner on Friday and Saturday. A potluck feast on Saturday evening will be our main community meal. Basic sustenance will be available for a well-grounded Sunday morning. Other meals will be self-organizing.

Eat, drink, feast and make Merry. All acts of love and pleasure are our rituals. Bring foods, drinks and indulgences that inspire and nourish you and your clan. We encourage bringing healthy and substantial main dishes, salads, fruits, vegetables and treats in bountiful amounts for sharing. Saturday evening and Sunday morning deserve extra abundance.

Many at CascadiaFire have specific dietary concerns. In respect for these preferences and avoidances, please consider foods for sharing that are free of wheat, gluten, dairy and added sugar. Any items containing such ingredients need to be prominently labeled with their constituents; so, please bring such labels. BYOB – Bring your own Bread!

Of course, you are welcome to bring whatever you need for your nourishment at your own campsite. Community potlucks and campsite sharing encouraged.

The Food Altar will be open during the nighttime circle as well as during afternoon community gatherings. Contributing substantial food, delicious snacks and nutritious surprises for the Food Altar is essential and separate from the community meals and potlucks.

CascadiaFire is a multigenerational tribal gathering. Children and elders are essential to healthy culture and encouraged to participate in ways that suit their aspirations, needs and abilities. Children and families are welcome to participate in community and child-oriented activities. Parents and extended family will come together to shape creative art, discovery and magickal experiences, including offering art and ceremony within the broader community. After a night of fire circle parents need to sleep like everyone else. Sponsored activities will specifically engage children during Quiet Time. Elders are especially encouraged to engage in creative events with children and families. Sharing wisdom and experiences creates cultural understanding and shapes institutions.
