Hello, beloved festival family!

We have some news about Beltane Southwest 2022 – please read carefully.

AT PRESENT, we are planning for an in-person event, April 28 – May 1, 2022. Obviously, a lot of things can change between now and then and we will adapt as necessary.

Read on to learn about our new COVID-related requirements.



💐  ALL in-person attendees eligible for COVID vaccination will be required to provide proof of vaccination IN ORDER TO REGISTER for the event. This means proof of:

– the full initial series for everyone age 5 and over, AND
– boosters for everyone age 12 and over if the recommended number of months has passed since the original vaccination(s).
💐 We will not be checking documents on site. You will need to complete the questionnaire and upload your records BEFORE YOU REGISTER in order to receive the registration link and passcode. Anyone registering without having first completed the vaccine verification questionnaire will have their registration canceled.
💐 You will be asked to upload an image or PDF of your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or comparable international vaccination record. The maximum file size accepted is 10 MB. If you have multiple cards (e.g., your booster is on a different card), please upload them all.

💐  Next, you will be asked to upload an image or PDF of a secondary document verifying your vaccination status, such as a pharmacy record, medical office record, MyChart/MyHealth record, VaxView/NMSIIS record, or similar record from a health care entity. If you have multiple secondary documents (e.g., you went to a different pharmacy chain for your booster), upload one secondary document for each vaccine you received. If you have an unusual circumstance (e.g., received vaccine through a clinical trial) that prevents you from obtaining a secondary record, the questionnaire includes an option to explain this.

NOTE: The initial vaccine verification/questionnaire alone does NOT register you for Beltane! But also, we will cancel any registrations that do not match up with a completed verification/questionnaire. This includes children (there is a place to indicate that a child is too young to be vaccinated), so please make sure your whole party is accounted for BEFORE you go to Eventbrite to do the actual ticket purchase.

💐 Once you’ve submitted the verification/questionnaire(s), you’ll receive a confirmation message that contains a password for Eventbrite’s Beltane SW 2022 page, where you can finish registering and pay for your ticket(s).  Don’t get so excited that you close the confirmation message in your browser before copying the Eventbrite password! 

💐 After you’re completely registered and paid, make sure you head over to sign up for your Community Service shift. The sooner you sign up, the more likely you are to find an open shift that fits into your plans.

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 email us or message us via our Facebook page.  You can also join our mailing list to receive news, updates, and the early access code to register.  We will never sell or share your information.
