Where Latvian Love Goddesses Reign Supreme
Wenchstock's roots go back to a core group of Latvian ladies who used to go out on the town In NYC when we were, ahem, a little younger. We had our fair share of admirers and somewhere along the way we became known as the Latvian Love Goddesses.
At the same time one original Love Goddess used to call us "wenches." When a milestone birthday was to be celebrated for her it was held in the Catskills, near Woodstock. Hence, the marriage of the words wenches and Woodstock was to be known as "Wenchstock."
The basic rule is when 3 or more Latvian women get together it's known as "Wenchstock." Most often it involves members of the original group of Wenches/Love Goddesses. Wenchstock is a venue for events; some are invitation only, others open to the Latvian Love Goddess-loving public.
Wenchstock also creates and sells merchandise that gently pokes fun at our Latvian heritage. Most merchandise is t-shirts, greeting cards, tote bags, aprons, magnets, bumper stickers and other giftables.
Wenchstock merchandise available at the following markets/tirdzins:
Previous Wenchstock activities have been a Jani celebration, invitation-only getaways to Montauk and Maine, Happy Hours in Toronto and New York, tailgating at the Genesee Valley Hunt Cup races, even a get-together in Jurmala, Latvia!
We're planning a Catskills ski weekend in 2022 contingent on availability of the core group. For the ski weekend we're looking to hold a "Lumba" class (Latvian Zumba), meet & greet night with chick flicks, yoga, a wellness lecture, skiing, an apres-ski party and farewell brunch. Invitation only.
Also in the works is a post-covid 19 invitation-only weekend
getaways in the Catskills and Upstate NY (sorry, no boys
allowed except hunky hired help). Suggestions and
comments always welcome-just go to the "contact us"
page. You can request to be on the mailing list as well.
