Blue Ridge Beltane seeks to provide educational workshops, community gatherings, social events, and arenas for artistic and spiritual expression.
We sponsor, host, and/or participate in events and activities that promote community mindfulness, spiritual growth and awareness, and environmental awareness.
Who We Are
Blue Ridge Beltane is a registered religious education non-profit dedicated to creating an annual Beltane Festival and potentially other Pagan-oriented events each year.
We are completely volunteer-driven.
We believe that paganism, in all its various forms, is a valid spiritual path to finding the divine, and we seek to create a strong and thriving pagan community.
What We’re About
- Family-friendly and adult-friendly events

- Featuring local presenters, versus the “Big Name Pagans”
- Keeping our events as affordable as possible for the entire range of Pagan folk
