The modern Beltane Fire Festival is inspired by the ancient Gaelic festival of Beltane which began on the evening before 1 May and marked the beginning of summer. Having been resurrected and reinterpreted as a practice in 1988, it has become a central focus for the Edinburgh community, bringing people together to acknowledge and revel in the birth of the summer and the ferility of the land.

Join Beltane Fire Society for 2021's BOnFire (Beltane Online Fire Festival). From storytelling, reminiscing, dancing, drumming and plenty more, there’s a variety of ways you can be part of the celebration.
