This Year's Beltane Festival  

Posted in ,

For the last several years we've always gone to the Faerie Festival at Spoutwood Farm. Last year it was a super expensive day - and I'm all for giving my money to these places/groups/events but it was insane :-[ This year is no different.

The drive from our place is about an hour and a half so we must figure in gas money. Parking is $5 - ok, not bad. Admission for adults is $15 0_o and children are $5. So, before we even do anything there it will cost us $50 plus gas money. Food prices are on the high side and well, and of course we'd all like to buy from different vendors. When all is said and done, this would easily turn out to be a $200 day.

So, this year we've decided to support a local group, the Reading Pagans and Witches by going to their May Faire event. If you happen to be local (Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas of Pennsylvania), this event is at the Berks County 4-H Center 1238 County Welfare Rd, Leesport, PA:

Saturday, May 4, 2013, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Sunday, May 5, 2013, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

$5.00 ages 10 and up
$1.00 ages 5-9
Ages 4 and under are free
Plenty of free parking!

To support this group, it will cost us $17 and ~maybe~ we'll need to get gas :) and this means we will be inclined to spend more money with the vendors and bring more donation items - they will
be collecting items for local animal shelters.

Here is the vendor list:
