Beltane Market and Celebration
May 4 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
We are pleased to announce Mystic Elements’ annual Beltane Market and Celebration!
Join us from 11-5 on Saturday, May 4th for a day of shopping and fun with some of Wilmington’s most amazing local artisans!
We will also be hosting a line up of talented psychic readers for a $20/15 special similar to our Halloween event. Stay tuned as we announce readers and vendors moving forward!
All vending and reading inquiries should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org
May 1st marks the approximate half-way point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. It is a time to celebrate abundance and the fertility of the Earth! The word ‘Beltane’ originates from the Celtic God ‘Bel’, meaning ‘the bright one’ and the Gaelic word ‘teine’ meaning fire. Together they make ‘Bright Fire’ and traditionally bonfires were lit to honour the Sun and encourage the support of Bel and the Sun’s light to nurture the emerging future harvest and guide the earth into summer.
Join shamanic practitioner Roger Lockshier later in the evening from 5-7 as he leads our outdoor celebration event where we will partake in creating a traditional May Pole and dance to celebrate the abundance of life!
All participants should bring 25ft of cloth or nylon ribbon for wrapping around the maypole. Be prepared to be outside and wear comfortable shoes as running and dancing around the May Pole will be happening!
This event is a free offering to the community, is family-friendly, and is open to people of all paths.
