Mischief Moon Gala

WP Gala Final Lineup 1

About

The Mischief Moon Gala will be held at Asheville Masonic Temple on Thursday, December 7 from 5 pm – 11 pm in Asheville, NC.

The Woodland Weirdos are taking over The Temple once again, bringing mischief and magical mayhem to downtown Asheville! We are excited to invite you to Firefly Gathering’s third annual fall fundraiser, the Mischief Moon Gala. This event has gained notoriety for its fancy and festive attitude and amazing costumery, as well as a stellar musical lineup and art installations. This year, we are delving into the wide world of weird, with an emphasis on the bizarre iterations of creation. 

Begin your journey in The Underworld, where we’ve curated an assortment of oddities to entertain you, including the Fae Cleaning Crew and the FerryMan. We will also be featuring local craft beverages, traditional Cherokee food and an array of live music and performers, dancing and art. 

When you need to revive your spirits, journey up the Haunted Staircase to sojourn in the Realm of the Fae, where ethereal music, poetry and the Otherworldly Art Gallery & Cantina await you. 

Join Holy River, Castanea Sounds, Wild Roots Rising, Sarah Lousie, Lugubrian Orchestra, Sky Rhythms, Street Creature Puppet Collective, Big Witch Indian Wisdom Initiative and so many more this December for an unforgettable night. Firefly’s Gala was a sold-out event last year, so please plan accordingly!

Lily Harlin

Bookkeeper

Lily is an artist, creator, and dreamer. Since a very young age, she has been immersed in the natural world and draws heavy inspiration from the wild. Though her medium changes frequently, Lily’s art and expression always incorporate an element of the organic and unpredictable. She got her associate in fine arts in 2023, and now volunteers at her school as a ceramic studio monitor. She hopes to open a studio of her own one day to have a place to teach and inspire others. In addition to doing commission work, Lily has been creating many graphics for The Firefly Gathering since 2019. Lily grew up in the Earthskills community from the time she was eight years old, so having the opportunity to grow and give back in so many ways has been incredibly fulfilling. No matter where she ends up, this group of people and ideas will always hold a special place in her heart.
