Welcome to the Frithmoot page
The 2023 Southwest Frithmoot will be held at the Elks Group Campsite within the gorgeous Coconino National Forest from May 19th – 21st. This will be our 13th Annual SFM (no longer consecutive since 2020 was COVID canceled). We are hoping to once again make this an incredible heathen community-building event for the general southwest and surrounding regions.
This is an open event for anyone from anywhere that wishes to attend (not just the Southwest) and geared towards Asatru and Heathen folks in our community and those that would like to learn more about being Heathen.
There will be many individual heathens and independent kindreds in attendance. This is a free event to attend and is not financially sponsored by any national organization. This event is hosted by the Wanderer Kindred of Arizona to build a better regional heathen community.
Here’s the low down:
As this is a community event, those attending should be willing to work during the campout. Pitching in keeps the event running smoothly and comfortable for everyone. This is also a good Frith-building exercise that will help you get to know your fellow Heathens. Everyone needs to pitch in to keep the site clean and trash under control. We are looking for specific sets of skills and willingness for first aid, set up and tear down, and children’s activities.
This year’s event will be held from 10:00 am May 19th through 10:00 am May 21st, 2023 (that is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). This site has a pavilion but we welcome any extra shade canopies in the common area. If you do not wish to tent camp there is (limited) lodging in Happy Jack, (limited) lodging 20 miles away in Strawberry, and Sedona is 25 miles away but pricey. There is plenty of room for RVs but please let us know if you plan on bringing one. There are no electrical hook-ups, if you require hookups there is RV camping at Happy Jack Lodge. Please keep in touch through our Facebook or MeWe pages as we will periodically post camping tips & reminders. We hope to have several seminars, classes, demonstrations, round table discussions, children’s games, and adult activities scheduled that you can read through on the event page. If you are musically talented, please feel free to bring your instruments and play around the campfires.
If you would like to give a presentation or host a discussion please let us know ASAP so we can schedule it.
Detailed directions to the site can be found HERE
If you are planning to attend you will need to go to the Registration page of this website, fill out the information, and submit it. Your information will be kept confidential and removed after the event, it is only used to make this as welcoming and safe event as we can. The more we know about who’s, the better we can plan seminars and games. This information is also important for meeting the special needs of folks in the community who have allergies or health issues that may need to be addressed in case of an accident or emergency. We like to be prepared.
