60th Birthday Celebration!
Join us for a full, joyful week of shows, events, talks, memories and sharings to celebrate the community’s 60th Birthday. Come and reconnect.
It’s 60 years since the community’s founders parked their caravan in the Original Garden, planting the seed for what has become an international centre of light for so many people around the world.
So it’s time to celebrate! We’ll sing, dance and reconnect with each other over a week of large events and intimate gatherings, in a variety of places around The Park and at Cluny.
After six decades, this is a time to honour the Past, meet in the Present, and step into the Future together. Please join us, either here at Findhorn, or online.
For more information, please visit Celebrating One Incredible Family, full of stories and news celebrating the people and spirit of our beautiful community.
