Mini-Fly celebration

Pride Mini-Fly

Saturday June 1, 2024 | 3pm – 10:30pm 

One World Brewing West | 520 Haywood Rd, Asheville, NC

Kick off Pride month with Firefly Gathering’s Pride Mini-Fly! Our Mini-Fly series offers a taste of everything Firefly is known for: earthskills, expert instructors, live music, local flavors, and bumpin’ DJ sets to celebrate our time together. After an awesome inaugural event in March at One World Brewing West, we are excited to have even more Firefly fun with y’all!

This two-part event has something for everyone.

Bring the whole family for an afternoon of earthskills, community connection and live music between 3pm and 7pm. After being inspired by our instructors, enjoy a traditional Cherokee dinner (available for separate purchase at the event). Finally, don your most festive “Gay-La” apparel as the sun sets to get down to the sounds of DJ Lakesolace for our 21+ dance party from 8pm – 10:30!

All proceeds from our Mini-Fly series support Firefly’s work to inspire and empower our community through year-round opportunities to connect with self, each other, and the natural world. Through events like these, we co-create a world where everybody can enjoy multi-generational perspectives, wisdom and earthskills to thrive. Learn more about Firefly Gathering’s work here

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.
