Walpurgisnacht is an annual family friendly event in Lewisburg TN to bring the Tennessee Valley Pagan and Heathen communities together for a time of celebration, community building, and ritual. It's a celebration of May Day and Walpurgisnacht by honoring Freya the Goddess of fertility and magic.
This is an overnight event held on private land with primitive camping, so we encourage you to arrive early on Saturday to set up your camp site before the event officially begins at noon. Here is a suggested list of what to pack. You can arrive as early as 8am to choose your site. If you want to decorate your site, that is totally allowed and encouraged.
After the opening ceremony there will be activities, games, and workshops until dinner. A detailed schedule will be posted once we've finalized it. We'll be gathering at sunset for a procession through the woods to the ritual site while the children go off on their night time scavenger hunt. After the ritual there will be adult socializing around the fire with drumming, and, of course, mead - including a mead tasting and competition! A small number of merchants will be set up in the market area throughout the event with a selection of offerings for various Pagan paths.
Bring your drums and musical instruments, fire spinning gear, offerings to Freya, and good spirits.
An information tent will be set up for questions, directions, first aid kit and emergency supplies. It will also act as the headquarters for staff and volunteers, and for choosing our 2020 May Day Queen.
In case of rain we will move the event to the following weekend.
