Babalon Rising 2022

June 9-12, 2022
Theme: Daleth/The Empress

Ages 21+ ONLY!

The Babalon Rising Festival is a place for occultists of all kinds to come together to discuss and perform magick and ritual, and to live the law of Thelema in a clothing-optional, primitive camping environment. Babalon Rising encourages self-exploration, spontaneous ritual, and lively magick.


Babalon Rising 2022 is currently accepting proposals for lectures, workshops, rituals, etc.

Apply to be a presenter for the 2022 festival.


The 2022 Festival

This is our festival's FOURTEENTH YEAR! Babalon Rising will have daily rituals, including Liber Resh vel Helios, The Gnostic Mass, and Saturday night's famous (infamous?) Feast of the Beast. The festival site includes hot showers, limited electricity, a performance stage, holy shrines, fire pits, and an on-site hot food vendor. We encourage festival-goers to bring a tent, sunscreen, and personal snacks and beverages. Clothing is optional! Vending is FREE with a regular paid admission to the festival.

For 2022 we'll be bringing back many of your favorite speakers from past festivals, along with exciting new names in occultism! 2022's Babalon Rising festival promises to be even more exciting than last year's! For just a taste of what to expect at this year's festival, check out our ongoing list of festival events.

T-shirts are available to purchase on-site (up to 3XL).

“Babalon Rising was serious Thelema all day, and serious Agape all night. It was the best outdoor festival I've ever attended.”
--Lon Milo DuQuette on the 2006 Babalon Rising Festival


Come Early!

As in the past, this year's festival schedule is shaping up to be  packed so full of events on all three days that we've included a free complementary set-up day! The cost of a regular adult admission  includes free overnight camping on Wednesday June 8, 2022. You and your group can set up camp on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 with no extra fees! No official Babalon Rising events will be taking place on these days (though we do have a few "unofficial" events happening for early arrivals), but we hope that the extra time encourages you to see all of the interesting rituals and workshops that we have lined up for Thursday starting bright and early.
