The Salem Witchcraft & Folklore Festival is a week-long event held in historic Salem, MA during August. This festival is intended to create sacred space for the exploration, celebration, and acceptance of Magical & Occult education, folklore, community, and activism throughout the city. All spiritual traditions and levels of experience are welcome to participate.

This will be a week’s worth of magical ritual, workshops, and social gatherings held throughout the city of Salem, all of which will culminate in a community ritual, The Black Cat Cabaret Costume Party and the Mercato Delle Strega Witches Market.

The Salem Summer Symposium is a joint effort founded by The Cauldron Black

and Spiritus Arcanum
