Treasury Festival Dates, 2019

With half ancient festivals, and half modern festivals, the Treasury of Apollon’s calendar is entirely our own creation, meant for our use, and for the use of those who would celebrate with us.

In anticipation of the next Treasury Year, here are our festivals, listed and dated accordingly.

Sisters and associates, below are the calendar dates for the upcoming year’s major Treasury festivals.  Underlined are the names of each Treasury Month followed by its corresponding number in parentheses.  Next, are that month’s Noumenia and Deipnon dates, according to the Julian calendar. Bullet points are for the major festivals celebrated in a particular month, followed by its day within that month.  As always, all celebrations are optional, though encouraged. This information may be updated at any time.
