05/07 - Poplifugia

Poplifugia

Poplifugia, festival in honour of Jupiter

The poplifugia or populifugia (Latin: the day of the people's flight), was a festival of ancient Rome celebrated on July 5, according to Varro, in commemoration of the flight of the Romans, when the inhabitants of Ficuleae and Fidenae appeared in arms against them, shortly after the burning of the city by the Gauls (see Battle of the Allia); the traditional victory of the Romans, which followed, was commemorated on July 7 (called the Nonae Caprotinae as a feast of Juno Caprotina), and on the next day was the Vitulatio, supposed to mark the thank-offering of the pontifices for the event.

06/07 - 13/07 - Ludi Apollinares

Ludi Apollinares

Ludi Apollinares, games in honour of Apollo (since 208 BC)

The Ludi Apollinares were solemn games (ludi) held annually by the ancient Romans in honor of the god Apollo. The tradition goes that at the first celebration hereof, they were suddenly invaded by the enemy, and obliged to take to their arms. A cloud of darts and arrows fell upon their enemies, and the Romans soon returned victorious to their sports.

Caprotinia

The Caprotinia, or feasts of Juno Caprotina, were ancient Roman festivals which were celebrated on July 9, in favour of the female slaves. During this solemnity they ran about, beating themselves with their fists and with rods. None but women assisted in the sacrifices offered at this feast.

Lucaria

In ancient Roman religion, the Lucaria was a festival of the grove (Latin lucus)

23/07 - Neptunalia held in honour of Neptune

Neptunalia held in honour of Neptune

Neptunalia held in honour of Neptune

The Neptunalia was an obscure archaic two-day festival in honour of Neptune as god of waters, celebrated at Rome in the heat and drought of summer.  It was one of the dies comitiales, when committees of citizens could vote on civil or criminal matters.

25/07 - Furrinalia

Furrinalia

Furrinalia held in honour of Furrina.

In ancient Roman religion, the Furrinalia (or Furinalia) was an annual festival held on July 25 to celebrate the rites (sacra) of the goddess Furrina. Varro notes that the festival was a public holiday (feriae publicae dies).

Both the festival and the goddess had become obscure even to the Romans of the Late Republic; Varro (mid-1st century BC) notes that few people in his day even know her name. One of the fifteen flamines (high priests of official cult) was assigned to her, indicating her archaic stature, and she had a sacred grove (lucus) on the Janiculum, which may have been the location of the festival.

Furrina was associated with water, and the Furrinalia follows the Lucaria (Festival of the Grove) on July 19 and 21 and the Neptunalia on July 23, a grouping that may reflect a concern for summer drought.

31/07 - 02/08 - Lammas

Lammas

Lammas: August 2, July 31st/Aug 1st

Frey Fest/Lughnasa/Lugnasad/Lammas

This is an Irish Gaelic name for the feast which commemorates the funeral games of Lugh, Celtic god of light, and son of the Sun.  In the mythological story of the Wheel of the Year, the Sun God transfers his power into the grain, and is sacrificed when the grain is harvested.  So we have a dying, self-sacrificing and resurrecting god of the harvest, who dies for his people so that they may live.  Sound familiar?
