Welcome to the Peebles March Riding and
Beltane Queen Festival
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.
Sadly in 2020 we had suspend the celebrations and put on a Virtual Beltane Festival. Once again in 2021 due to the pandemic conditions we need to have our festivities mostly virtually. However this time we will have more on offer. As well as videos of past Beltane Festivals we will have virtual discos, horse racing and a treat of a Retreat. This time it will be interactive and we need your help!
For instance, last year we asked the good people of Peebles to paint the town red get your bunting up, and you did. However, this year let's go a little further. As well as erecting bunting. Let's decorate the houses and the shops like we have done in previous years. The Peebles Beltane Festival will be running a decorated houses and shops competition. Anyone can enter. So come on, lets decorate the houses and shops to boost that Beltane spirit. Let’s see an ocean of red and white everywhere.
Wednesday - HORSE RACING
