Samhain 2022: The Midnight Carnival

What is Festival?

Each year, CMA hosts a Beltane and Samhain festival at Spirit Haven Ranch, a 100+ acre property in Flatonia, Texas. These festivals include four days and three nights of pagan-based spirituality, community, and celebration. You'll find ample open camping, dedicated Sacred Spaces to explore, a welcoming community, and a packed schedule to plan your personal event!

Your days might include morning Yoga, shopping on Vendor's Row, scheduled massages or henna art, workshops on your favorite pagan or occult topics, visiting with guest speakers from diverse paths, seasonal community activities (like the Maypole!) and connecting with a beautiful, inclusive community.

Rest when you can, because the setting sun brings three nights of activities like a featured band, Bard's Fire, community rituals, and a Revel Fire in one of our Sacred Spaces! Bring your music makers, flow toys, and dancing feet, and join our drummers, dancers, fire-spinners, and Revelers in creating another festival of magical memories!

Wednesday Entry

Some of our members like to show up the day before festival officially starts to get their camp set up and be settled when the events start occurring.

Wednesday Entry is an additional $25 to your registration.

Certain individuals are waived the Wednesday Entry fee, due to serving as sacred space coordinators, previous board members, vendors, and festival staff. Lifetime w/Event Membership holders are also exempt from the Wednesday Entry Fee.

If you are exempted from the Wednesday Fee and are NOT a vendor:

  1. Select the NON "+ Wed Early Entry" registration option
  2. Complete your registration, including payment
  3. Email help@magickal-arts.org to let us know that you need your registration updated to the "+ Wed Early Entry" and why you qualify for the exemption

We will update your registration to include Wednesday Early Entry and waive the $25 after verifying your exemption.
