🚨🚨🚨 IMPORTANT INFORMATION 🚨🚨🚨

Beloved Beltaneers: Based on the latest guidance from the CDC (recommending the cancellation of events of >50 people scheduled during the next eight weeks) and the NM Secretary of Health’s prohibition of gatherings of >100 people, we have concluded that it is necessary to cancel Beltane Southwest​ for 2020. These are extremely challenging times. Please do everything possible to keep this community safe.

The New Mexico pagan community held its first Beltane gathering in “Witches’ Beltane Meadow” in the Sandia Mountains in 1980.  Beltane Southwest is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to ensuring that this joyous tradition continues.  As a community we are fortunate to be supported by Silver Moon Health Services, a group of dedicated and trained volunteers who provide first-aid services for the event.  Both Beltane Southwest and Silver Moon have all-volunteer staffs.  If you are interested in becoming involved, please seek out the coordinators via the Gate.
