Real People, Real Traditions, Real Community.
Beltaine is about Spring, It's about Family.
It's for Babies and Children, Maid and Gallants.
Our Aunts, Uncles, Mothers and Fathers.
Elders and Ancestors.
Our joyous journey through the Wheel of the Year
...and the Web of Life.

 "Now the green blade riseth, from the buried grain;
Wheat that in dark earth, many days has lain..."


Join us for our annual homecoming and celebration of the Delights of Spring

It’s Beltaine at Four Quarters! A Weekend of Renewal !

Time for the season of hibernation to end, and the season of joyous activity and growth to begin! Come and see the Land in its springtime splendor, bedecked in a blanket of wildflowers and budding trees, with every morning borne on the music of songbirds. Greet the tribemates you haven’t seen all winter, and bring new friends to learn what Four Quarters is all about!

MayPoleDanceIn addition to all your gear and springtime finery, please bring flowers to share for the Beltaine workshops and ceremonies. We want to the see the beauty of flowers everywhere we turn, so, if you would, pick up a grocery store bouquet or two on your way, and drop them off at the buckets by the Coffee Dragons.
