Vendor Village is a rich part of the Blue Ridge Beltane experience and tradition. Every year, a carefully selected group of vendors not only from Virginia but from up and down the East Coast recreates this unique marketplace, where you can find unusual, often one-of-a-kind magical items for your home, for ritual and magical workings, and for everyday life. It’s one of the highlights of this pagan festival here in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia.
Vendors are carefully chosen to give you a lot of variety. You never know what kinds of treasures you might stumble upon, including magical tools, altar pieces, statuary, clothing, costume pieces, belly dancing gear, books, art, lotions, soaps, herbs, and so many more surprises every year.
And don’t forget the services–we often have at least one or two vendors offering divination, massages, or energy work.
Our vendors represent a variety of pagan traditions, so there’s bound to be something for everyone at the festival.
