Time to don your festive fall finery for this fundraising gala! So pull out your buckskins and bark tans; your lace & tutu’s; your feathers and furs; your sparkles & sequins; whatever regalia you feel like your most glorious self in, and join us for a very special evening at Montford Park under the Hunter’s Full Moon.

A fundraiser to benefit The Firefly Gathering, The Hunter’s Full Moon Gala will feature a very special evening of ceremony, music, stories, and mystery on Wednesday, October 20th!  Catch Leah Song and David Brown of Rising Appalachia, Resonant Rogues, and much more at this year’s event. Tickets are on-sale now!

100% of the proceeds goes towards efforts to build resilient and diverse communities in Western North Carolina, share traditional craft and wisdom, and reconnect people all over the Southeast with the skills and wisdom that Firefly is known for.


  • General Admission Lawn (Eastern Cottontail Rabbit) – $25
  • Mid-Tier (Wild Turkey) – $50
  • Second-tier (White Tail Deer) – $75
  • Top-tier (Black Bear) – $125

The journey will begin with a land blessing and the story of Kanati, the Cherokee Hunter, from Nancy Basket; then we’ll enjoy an intimate evening of spoken word, music, art and the beautiful musings of Leah Song & David Brown of Rising Appalachia. We’ll also enjoy the rousing tunes of Asheville’s own Resonant Rogues!

Refreshments will be available, both alcoholic and non, for purchase (or included with the upper tier tickets.) There will be some pop-up food vendors, as well, and merchandise will also be available from various artists, so come prepared to share. This event is rain or shine, so please come prepared.

The Firefly Gathering is a grassroots, community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Western North Carolina, providing educational and cultural programming to the Asheville area since 2007. By offering a cyclical sharing of traditional craft and wisdom in community, we reconnect people in the Southeast with the teachings of the past to engage with the rapidly changing present to co-create a sustainable future.
