About the Event

Tonight's event is specifically for queer and trans folks. Please respect this space by only attending if you identify as queer and/or trans. Most of Yesod's events are open to everyone -- you can find others here.

Purim is a joyous holiday from the biblical book of Esther, which calls for celebration in the middle of the month of Adar. Many Jewish communities celebrate with a party. At Yesod Farm+Kitchen, we'll have music and dancing. We welcome your song requests! Email info@yesodfarm.org to add a song to the playlist.

There’s a fun custom of wearing masks and costumes on Purim. You’re invited to come dressed in costume, or wear whatever delights you. You can also make yourself a mask at Yesod’s craft table.

This event is outdoors. Please also dress to prepare for the weather. We’re in a different micro-climate than Asheville, so it might be colder/windier/wetter than at home. We will cancel if it’s raining — check your email before coming if the weather looks questionable.

Yesod will provide light snacks and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). You can bring more drinks if you wish, but please limit your drinking to take care of yourself and be respectful of others. Know that we’re on a dark winding road, and make a plan to get home safely. If you would like any support around being a space with alcohol, please say so in your registration form.

We are committed to supporting safety in our community. Everyone attending must agree to these guidelines.

  1. Covid safety. Please stay home if you are not feeling well or if you have been exposed to someone with symptoms or who has tested positive for COVID in the past 10 days. We ask that everyone brings their own mask. We will also have surgical masks available. Individuals can choose how close/distanced they are from each other throughout the event.
  2. Consent is required. You must ask and receive enthusiastic verbal consent before moving within 6 feet unmasked or touching another person.
  3. Limit your alcohol consumption. We expect everyone to maintain enough sobriety to act respectfully, and no one will consume more than 2 servings of alcohol.

Please RSVP on Yesod's website. Reserve 1 ticket per guest. This event is free, and we welcome donations to support Yesod Farm+Kitchen. We encourage BIPOC to sign up for free tickets, and white community members to make a personally meaningful contribution, if you’re able. We also encourage you to join Yesod in making a donation to the Reparations Stakeholder Authority of Asheville (RSAA).

Accessibility info: We will be dancing on a grassy lawn that is slightly sloped in some areas, and more noticably sloped in others. There is a cement pathway from the accessible parking spots to the event area. There is limited/dim lighting in the dance area.  General parking is a 3 minute uphill walk away from the dance venue and the walkway is currently not lit. Accessible parking is available a few hundred feet from the dance area. The bathroom is a composting toilet and cold water handwashing station. Please email info@yesodfarm.org with accessibility requests and questions.

Questions? Email info@yesodfarm.org

Address and parking directions will be sent in an email once you register. Due to limited parking, we recommend carpooling.
