The 10th annual Natural Mystic Fair will be held Friday through Sunday, September 8 through 10. Saturday and Sunday’s activities, which run from 2 to 11 p.m., will take place in the backyard of Tassili’s Raw Reality Café, a vegan restaurant located at 1059 Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard in the West End. The location for Friday’s event wasn’t finalized by press time.
The fair’s theme this year is “Meet Your Inner Child and Other Magical Folk,” and it features speakers, music, dance, art, vendors, food, music and more. The keynote speaker for the event is Kwame Sun Horse, an indigenous elder and healer who will share his knowledge and wisdom about the journey to the world of spirit guides, animal totems, ancestors and more.
The rest of the speaker lineup includes naturopathic practitioner Mark Armstrong, nurse practitioner Patrice Little, Neter Ankh, Queen YoNasDa LoneWolf, King Simon and Queen Mother Tassili Ma’at. Musical performers include Raury, Ransom Razina, Sunday Jones, Arata Maat and Uwi.
Ma’at is the founder and owner of Tassili’s Raw Reality Café as well as the founder of the nonprofit I AM Ascension Temple of Love, and the two organizations join forces to produce the Natural Mystic Fair. Ma’at describes the temple as the “spiritual and educational component” of Tassili’s Raw Reality. It is located above the restaurant.
Ma’at sees the Natural Mystic Fair as an occasion to “hold space for the beloved community” and “have the difficult conversations that must be had in order for the beloved community to heal and move forward in health.”
