BELTANE 2023:

SPARK OF SPRING

REGISTRATION FOR BELTANE 2023: SPARK OF SPRING OPEN NOW!

Beltane approaches!

The time is coming for us to gather to kindle and rekindle our joys and passions as a community. Join us in celebrating this Spark of Spring!

What is Festival?

Each year, Spirit Haven hosts a Beltane and Samhain festival at Spirit Haven Ranch, a 100+ acre property in Flatonia, Texas. These festivals include four days and three nights of Pagan-based spirituality, community, and celebration. You’ll find ample open camping, dedicated Sacred Spaces to explore, a welcoming, inclusive community, and a packed schedule to plan your personal event!

During the day, you can shop on Vendor’s Row, schedule massages or henna art, attend workshops on your favorite Pagan or occult topics from acclaimed guest speakers, and participate in seasonal community activites (like the Maypole at Beltane and the community Ofrenda at Samhain).

Rest when you can, because the setting sun brings three nights of activities like a featured band, Bard’s Fire, community rituals, and a Revel Fire in one of our Sacred Spaces! Bring your music makers, flow toys, and dancing feet, and join our drummers, dancers, fire-spinners, and Revelers in creating another Festival of magical memories!

Samhain

Samhain is a liminal time of honoring our late loved ones, ancestors, and release. Samhain marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year.

Our Samhain festivals are held in October, typically on the third weekend of the month. 

Beltane

Beltane is generally known as a time of rebirth, renewal, passion, and fertility. Beltane marks the beginning of the pastoral summer season, when livestock were driven out to the summer pastures.

Our Beltane festivals are held in April, typically on the third weekend of the month. Our next Beltane Festival will be April 13 – 16, 2023, under a waning moon.

Attendance Requirements

Festival is an event just for our members – one of the many perks of joining Spirit Haven! We keep our events private and members-only to keep our membership safe while we gather to celebrate. We understand that several members are not “out” to their friends, family, or employers, and confidentiality is one of our core values as an organization.

You’ll need a valid Event Registration, which is refundable up to one week before Festival. Can’t make it? No worries! Email us at help@spirit-haven.org for your options for refunds and rollovers.

You’ll need to complete two hours of Community Service during Festival. As Spirit Haven is entirely volunteer-run and Festivals take a lot of work to put on, we need your help keeping everyone safe and informed and to keep Festival running smoothly!

Festivals at Spirit Haven Ranch are LEAVE NO TRACE events. We live by the value of stewardship and the saying “Pack It In, Pack It Out!” This means that any and all trash you generate at Festival needs to be taken with you at departure and disposed of off of the Ranch.
