Mesa Harvest Festival
Harvest Festival is held in Mesa shortly after Harvest Full Moon (late September, early October) every year. Offerings of corn planted this year are taken to the sacred lake where the rain gathers from Grandmother Ocean and the mountain, Leon Peak where the rains and snows announce their arrival by lightening and thunder. The harvest and the life-giving waters are celebrated by everyone, in a Festival that is facilitated by Gary Weidner and our local weather workers.
If you are going to the sites, the lake or peak we will gather in the morning, exact time TBA. Wear good walking shoes, women in skirts, drinking water.
If you wish to only attend the Festival, it begins when the men and women return from the sites, time TBA.
All should bring offerings of a bouquet of flowers, a basket of fruit and a loaf of sweet and loaf of salty bread for the offerings. And a pot luck dish to share at the festival feast.
