About Beltane Fire Festival
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Celebrate the first signs of summer with a blazing mix of fire, drumming, dance, and acrobatics.
For one special night, hundreds of otherworldly creatures will descend on Calton Hill to mark the change of the seasons. When the drums start to thunder, the May Queen awakens and leads her followers on a spectacular procession, watched by an audience of thousands against the backdrop of Edinburgh's stunning skyline.
BELTANE FIRE FESTIVAL brings ancient Celtic traditions to life with a unique modern twist. Through dazzling fiery displays, elaborate costumes, and immersive storytelling, we show the May Queen transforming the Green Man from his wintry guise so they can rule together over the warmer months.
