Orlando Wiccans to celebrate spring fertility festival

Orlando Wiccans to celebrate spring fertility festival



The Wiccan Religious Cooperative of Florida has announced that it will host a gathering this weekend to celebrate Beltane, which traditionally heralds the beginning of summer.

Beltane, which usually is celebrated May 1, is the last of three spring fertility festivals celebrated by Wiccans. The name is the anglicized spelling of a Gaelic word for “May.”

The Orlando-area Wiccans will celebrate Beltane April 24 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church of Orlando, 1901 E. Robinson Street.

The Beltane ritual, which begins at 6 p.m., will include a Maypole dance. A community feast and raffle will happen after the ritual.
