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!
