Festival of the Dead
Salem, MA
The shades of the dead whisper to us at the time of Samhain, or Halloween, the magickal time between the worlds where the spirits of our ancestors walk among us. The Witches of Salem honor this time of enchantment with our annual Festival of the Dead, a carnival of merriment, psychic work, mediumship, and ritual where we pay homage to our friends on the other side. Walk with us through the veil as we journey together through the places where ghosts and spirits dwell, waiting to guide us on our quest for wisdom.
