Bacchanalia is an ancient festival celebrating the Greek God, Bacchus – the God of wine, revelry, and merriment. Our Bacchanalian Ball will feature live music for dancing; a chocolate buffet; a home-brewed mead, wine, and beer tasting; and a live auction of wonderful crafts and services, hosted by Bacchus himself. Home-brewers are welcome to submit their best brews for tasting; a prize will be awarded to the crowd favorite.

To donate to the auction or to have your home-brew available for tasting, please e-mail emeraldragonfly@emppa.org.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Eastern Maine Pagan Pride Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing public understanding and awareness of alternate faiths and enhancing connections between Pagans and Pagan organizations in Eastern Maine.
