Other Events

Brewing Competition

This year’s Trillium Brewing Competition is being run by past winner Arthur Shipkowski, and is open to all brewers, meadmakers, and vintners attending the festival. The number of categories will be determined by the number and range of entries; the best of all entries will receive an award in all cases. Likely subdivisions, given sufficient interest, include Beer, Dry Mead, Sweet Mead, and Fruit Wine.
View details on this competition.

Seed Exchange

Every year we do a seed exchange at Trillium.  Any types of seeds that you might have laying around to spare can be brought in a container/bag to keep them appropriately dry and left at the registration table container.  Any that you see in the basket that you would like to take home, please do so.  This is a free exchange, but donations to the campground are always welcome.


All vendors and Groves will be asked to donate an item worth $40 or more for the loud auction. All proceeds will go to Trillium.  Anyone may donate an item!   Be sure to bring extra cash or check to participate in the auction.

Bardic Circle

Got a song or story to share? A great joke? We want to hear it at the Bardic Circle, Friday night.
