Peebles Beltane Festival

Peebles March Riding and Beltane Queen Festival 

Beltane Festival 2023          18th - 24th June

Our week long Beltane festival has been celebrated since 1897 (though its roots stretch much further back in time) and the organisers strive to uphold its ancient traditions. 

2023 will be building on the success of 2022 and with a wonderful and energetic Beltane Festival. Our Cornet Elect Robert Girdwood and Lass Ailidh Copeland are ready to take on the role of leading our great festival. Queen Minnie is getting her court ready and Wardens' John and Malcolm are preparing their addresses. Crowning Lady Nancy is trying to contain her excitment and Proclaimer Caitlin is ready to proclaim.

Here is to a very successful Beltane Festival in 2023


It is customery for Peeblean Exiles to think of home during the flaming months of June. These thoughts then turn to words and in the past they have sent telegrams to be read out on Red Letter Day to congratulate the Queen, her court and all that is Beltane.
