1:00p Men's Pagan Spring Fest and Beltane celebration, John Mise Park, San Jose map_button.gif (1242 bytes) Where better to do ritual dancing?  Ok, ok, I admit it, Morris dancing isn't strictly a Pagan celebration, but gee, it is folklore and fun.   This event is cohosted by a number of pagan groups in the area, including Samildanach, and Hearthstone.


 5:30a May Day morning, Baylands Nature Preserve, Palo Alto map.gif (1249 bytes) Come help us dance up the Sun on MayDay morning (we do it every year, and it always works - good thing, too!) and celebrate.  It's not so much that we believe the sun won't come up on Mayday without some dancing, it's just that if we didn't dance, and the sun didn't come up, we'd feel really bad.

If you haven't been out to see the sunrise celebration, give it a try. It's very beautiful, and while the sleepiness lasts only as long as it takes you to get there, the happy glow lasts all day! 


1:00p - 3:00p  Stanford Bridge Faire, White Plaza, Stanford Campus Stanford's traditional spring faire is our favorite faire, dancing with Mayfield Morris, Seabright Morris, and others. You'll find us over at the bookstore.


12:30p - 1:00p
1:30p - 2:00p
