Pagan Festival Celebrates 25 Years

by Jamie Freeman

The Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Wicca, founded in 1979, decided to throw a little festival back in 1985 to celebrate the return of Spring. Now, 25 years later, the festival has grown to include more than 300 attendees from all around the world.

Dubbed the Spring Mysteries Festival, it re-imagines the Demeter’s mysteries at Eleusis. Although much of the exact ritual from Eleusis, Greece has been lost over the 2000 years, each year, a cast produces a version of the Mysteries which inspires and renews the spiritual well of the participants. The story always involves the 12 Olympian Greek Gods and focuses on Demeter, the Goddess of the harvest, and her daughter Kore.
