Samhain Bonfire + Costume Party

October 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Samhain Bonfire - Oct. 26, 2018

We’re celebrating Halloween the Irish way! Join us for a bonfire, drinking, tasty treats, dancing, a costume party and other festivities as we celebrate the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain (SOW-in).

What is Samhain?

According to Celtic tradition, Samhain marks the end of the harvest and the beginning of winter. It is also believed to be the time of year when the “veil” between the spirit and earthly realms is at its thinnest, allowing fairies and spirits to walk among us. Samhain was traditionally celebrated with a bonfire, feasting, dancing, drinking and fun for everyone.

Celebrate Samhain with KCIC!

We’re taking the party out of Drexel Hall and out to The Griffin Farm in Louisburg, KS! Come for hotdogs, a bonfire, live Irish music, céilí dancing, Samhain-themed activities and a costume contest! Here’s what else you need to know:
