Formed in 1988, Beltane Fire Society is a community arts performance charity. We host the Beltane Fire Festival (on 30 April each year) and Samhuinn Fire Festival (31 October) in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Our next event will be Beltane Fire Festival, which (COVID-19 permitting) will take place on Calton Hill on Friday 30th April. In 2020, we were forced to cancel our Beltane celebration and migrated our rituals online instead. You can watch BOnFire (Beltane Online Fire Festival) here on our website.
All our events are staged by volunteers, and are witnessed by thousands. We celebrate the changing seasons with reimagined versions of ancient Celtic festivals.
Beltane Fire Society is a not-for-profit registered charity in Scotland.
Charity Number SC040137. Company Number SC341753.
