Every year, the Waldorf School of Bend welcomes the apex of Spring with a traditional May Faire. This lovely festival usually features beautiful wreaths bedecked with fresh flowers, cheerful music and dancing around a maypole with brightly colored ribbons, and the sharing of food and friendship during a school-wide community picnic.

This year The Waldorf School of Bend is hosting a community-wide May Faire on May 4th from 11am-3pm at The Waldorf School of Bend campus. Below is some more information of what to expect at the faire and a schedule of events.

History of May Faire:

The history of celebrating May Faire dates back to ancient times and spans a variety of different cultures, who share similar themes of fertility and fecundity. Originally known as Beltaine in Celctic and Gaelic lands after the sun god, Belenus, this seasonal festival took place about halfway between the spring equinox, Ostara (modern-day Easter), and the coming summer solstice, Litha (Midsummer).
