Admission is FREE!

Sunday, May 1, 2022 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM
On April 30th at dusk, we will have a Beltane Ritual followed by a bonfire then an outdoor movie. On May 1st, we will crown a May Queen and a King of the Forest, dance around a decorated maypole during the day, witness a mass handfasting ceremony.
This event will be held outdoors, rain or shine, on approximately five acres. Because of this, we will not require anyone to wear a mask. However some vendors may require them, so please be prepared.
Festival and parking areas are completely on grass and are handicap accessible. The terrain is slightly hilled.
Some of the events we are planning are rituals, demonstrations, axe throwing, cornhole, tug-o-war, and an outdoor movie night. Please note that most of the vendors will be cash only.
As mentioned above, we will be holding a mass handfasting ceremony on Saturday, May 1, 2021, at 4:30 PM. This FREE ceremony is being officiated by an ordained member of the clergy so those who wish to be legally married will have that option. If you would like to participate in the ceremony, both symbolically and legally, please visit our handfasting ceremony page. Although there is no charge for this event, we ask that you register so we can be prepared.
