2018 Spring Equinox: Magic Meadow Ritual | Golden Gate Park

Saturday, March 17, 2018 - 1:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Magic Meadow, Golden Gate Park | 41st Avenue & Lincoln Way, San Francisco, CA

Celebrate the Spring Equinox as the Wheel of the Year turns toward the sunshine with a pagan ritual in Magic Meadow in Golden Gate Park at 1 pm on Saturday, March 17, 2018.

This ritual especially involves young people, and typically includes an egg-hunt for kids afterwards (though we have not confirmed this for 2018). Please bring food or non-alcohol drinks to share at their post-ritual feast. Flowers and musical instruments are also welcome.

Transit: Take BART to Civic Center and transfer to Muni N-Judah train. Take the train to Judah and 40th, then walk two blocks to the park, enter at 41st Ave. Next, walk two short blocks into the park, enter the parking lot on right, and look for Pagans and/or signs. They’re usually straight ahead in the big meadow. Drivers, enter at 41st and Lincoln to park in the lot.

There’s wheelchair access via a paved path from parking lot. Please note that the field itself can be swampy after heavy rain.

An equinox occurs twice a year (around March 20th and September 22nd), when the plane of Earth’s equator passes the center of the Sun. At this time, the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun. – Wikipedia
