The festival will include a Yule ritual, healing circle, sweat lodge, nightly drum circles, workshops, vendors, camping, entertainment and activities for the entire family.

Mama Gina Concert
Pagan Bard and Folk Artist

singer/songwriter & wanderlust ... fearless story-telling ... bluesy vocals ... humor ... straight-ahead, rhythmic, 12 string acoustic guitar ... djembe ... frame drums ... all weft and warp of the soul of this bard

"Mama Gina is well poised to be one of the names brought up when discussing modern Pagan music. If there is such a thing as an A list of Pagan musicians, Mama Gina is well on her way to being in some very good company with The Undertaker's Daughter. This is a powerful album and she is welcome among the best." -- David Banach, The Magick Jukebox: Pagan Music and Media from Around the Worldwitchesandpagans.com (3/2014)

Singer/songwriter and wanderlust Mama Gina feels most at home when she can feel the earth beneath her feet and taste the freedom of the open sky. With down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor, and straight-ahead, rhythmic, acoustic guitar, she tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart. She sings of life, death and rebirth. She sings of holding on and letting go. She speaks to the Gods and Goddesses and they speak back. She sings their stories as they become her own. She sings of her spiritual connection to the natural world, and of our responsibility to nurture both the mundane and the magical. When she is not performing, you just might find her camping in the woods seeking inspiration from the earth beneath her feet and that vast, open sky.

You can find Mama Gina's music at www.mamaginamusic.com.

A Typical Day at an All World Acres Festival
In the morning stroll down to the cafe for coffee and/or breakfast. Outside in the courtyard you'll find many people socializing and planning for the day's activities. Wander into the garden circle where you can enjoy a quiet moment for meditation or exercise. The fire circle is another favorite spot in the morning. Next it's time to check out the workshop schedule. They all sound fun and educational so catch a couple before lunch. After lunch, if it's warm out, you might want to cool off in the mistic garden. Or if you prefer to soak up more knowledge there's always more workshops. The afternoon is also a great time for shopping and you'll find a bustling merchants' row with a large diverse selection of merchandise. In the evening you might enjoy a concert or show in the courtyard or join an impromptu jam session/sing-a-long. The night is also time for drum circle and a visit to AWA is incomplete without experiencing  the magic around the main fire. Later in the evening stop by the cafe for coffee or dessert.
