About Our Wishing Tree
Niagara Celtic's Wishing Tree joined the festival in 2015, and has become a mainstay for guests wishing to leave their mark while visiting. The tree's origins come from old traditions in Celtic nations; variations include Fairy Trees, May Trees, Votive Trees, and more. Visitors add their wishes to the trees as offerings to local saints, deities or wee folk, in hopes they can receive help or guidance towards the wish or prayer.
Guests add to the tree all weekend, which is located in Region 4 near The Pavilion Stage. Public wishes are written on cloth or paper. Private wishes (called Clouties, or Clootie in Scotland) are rags, cloth or ribbons tied to the tree. At the end of the festival all the wishes are ceremoniously sent to the heavens, with help from the Fire Sculpters, where we hope many receive help in coming true!
Contest Winners- Congrats to all!
