Is the festival you attended like the one-day conferrals I hear about? Are the one-day conferrals the common manner of rising through the York Rite? I'm wondering if there is still a tradition of doing the degrees one at a time, like the Blue Lodge. I'm guessing that due to the sheer amount of time it would take, that the one-day deals have gained enormous popularity.
It was one of the one-day degree conferrals. It was a long day! I think we covered about 9 degrees in the 12 hours we were there.

I've heard of some degrees such as Mark Master being conferred by themselves... A couple of guys there said their local commandaries put them on years ago.
