November brings the 8th annual DEATH FAIRE: a modern-day ritual for our community, inspired by the death positivity movement, sharing a rich time of knowledge, wisdom, celebration, and remembrance.

This year Death Faire is a three-day event focused on exploring grief in order to live our best lives. We offer many different opportunities for changing the culture that currently surrounds something every living being must experience.
