Festival of the Dead in Salem, Massachusetts
 

Friday, October 31, 2014, 5pm on Salem Common
Join Christian Day, Lorelei, and Leanne Marrama with the Dragon Ritual Drummers as Witches from around the globe gather for the sacred and magical ritual of Halloween! This event is free and open to all who wish to attend with an open heart and a love for their dead.

On that most mysterious night when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest, the Salem Witches gather on Salem Common—as was done on hilltops of old, for a ceremony to honor our loved ones who have crossed over into the spirit world. This time was known to the ancient Celts as Samhain, or Summer’s end for, as nature began to die, so too it was believed, that the spirits of the dead roam the lands seeking old friends among the living. This is a time to renew connections, mourn those you miss, and to celebrate all that these cherished souls brought to your life. Death is not the end, but merely a doorway to another world.

At ritual’s end, join us for The Official Salem Witches’ Halloween Ball next door at the historic Hawthorne Hotel! (Note: tickets to the Ball may not be available at the door. We recommend purchasing tickets to the ball in advance if you plan to attend)
