Event Details

Join the witches of Reclaiming for the annual springtime Beltane Ritual – a pagan ritual reflecting the passing season at 1 pm on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

May Day, or Beltane, celebrates the time when the green of the Earth meets the red and black of workers’ rights in the greening fields and a time to rejoice together under the warm sun.

The ritual begins 1 pm with music and wreath-making. Please bring flowers and greenery if you can – and food and non-alcohol drinks to share.

Musical instruments are also welcome, as is colorful attire. Dress in layers. This ritual is kid-friendly.

Help is needed from a few “graces” – if you’ve been to at least a few Reclaiming rituals and want to help out, drop a line. Also they are in need of  help with creating the maypole ribbons and bonnet ahead of time. A great way to celebrate the blessings of the season. You may contact them you’d like to help.

Please be respectful of this ancient tradition; this event isn’t meant for people to come take over and get drunk, but more for people who are interested in learning more about pagan rituals.

Getting There: From parking-lot, go straight ahead in the large meadow. The field is level but can be swampy after rain.

Transit: BART to Civic Center, transfer to Muni N-Judah train. Take very scenic train to Judah and 40th, walk two blocks to park. Enter at 41st Ave. Walk two short blocks into park, enter parking lot on right, look for Pagans and/or signs. (Drivers – enter at 41st and Lincoln, park in lot.)

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
