Welcome to the Frith Moot page

Hail Folks!

The 2021 Southwest Frith Moot will be held at the Lewis Canyon Campground outside of Show Low, AZ from June 18th – 20th 2021 within the gorgeous Apache-Sitegreaves National Forest. This will be our 11th SFM (no longer annually 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 being financially sponsored by any national organization. This event is being hosted by the Wanderer Kindred of Arizona to build a better regional heathen community.

So here is 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 June 18th through 10:00 am June 20th, 2021 (that is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). The Frith Moot site is at the Lewis Canyon campground near Show Low, AZ (link to Google Maps are below on this page as well as detailed directions on the locations page). There are vault bathrooms on-site with plenty of room for tent camping, picnic tables, a fire pit, BBQ grills, and non-potable water. There is no pavilion and no electricity! We have a large canopy for community seating and welcome any extras you may allow us to use. If you do not wish to tent camp there is lodging available in Show Low and Heber. There is a limited amount of room for RVs, if you plan on bringing an RV you MUST get approval from Vince or Dani beforehand or make alternative camping arrangements at an RV park or campsite nearby. Please keep in touch through our Facebook event page as we will be periodically posting 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 have anything you would like to give a presentation on or host a discussion about please let us know ASAP so we can schedule it.

If you are planning to attend you will need to go to the Registration portion of this website, fill out the signup page and submit it. The information will be kept confidential and removed after the event. It is only used by us to make this as welcoming an event as we can. The more we know about how many adults and kids we have, the better we can plan seminars and games. This information is also very important for meeting the special needs of folks in the community that have allergies or health issues that may need to be addressed in case of an accident or emergency. We like to be prepared.
