About the event

Beltane, or May Day, is celebrated every year on May 1. It is one of the eight Sabbats and falls halfway between the spring equinox and the coming summer solstice. This day marks the coming summer and is associated with fertility. It represents the peak of spring and the beginning of summer when Earth’s energies are considered the strongest. The festival is celebrated with bonfires, dancing, and performing fertility rituals. In ancient times, Celts used to light two bonfires because they believed the bonfires would purify people and increase their fertility. People would also pass cattle between the two fires, as they thought it would purify the cattle and ensure the herd’s fertility.
