The Utah Black Hat Society is a group of Witches and friends of Witches who live a life of magick. We come together to share, learn and just have fun with each other while taking a whimsical view of our tall pointy hats and celebrating who we are. Worn on the head witch hats are symbolic of wisdom and intelligence. The pointed form of the witch's hat represents the cone of power. The cone of power is associated with the circle, the symbol of the sun, unity, eternity, rebirth and the triangle. Watch the group sites for events such as The Witches' High Tea, The Witches' Wassail, The Mad Hatter Tea Party and other social gatherings. We are here to connect, socialize, and just have a good time. Trolls need not apply. Happy Flying!!!
The Witches' High Tea
Our signature event is the Witches' High Tea held every October. The first Witches' High Tea was held Friday, October 13, 2006 at the Grand America Hotel. Twenty five Witches showed up in their finest formal witch wear for a delightful afternoon.
For the second annual Witches' High Tea we decided to explore our options and held the event at the fabulous Beehive Tea Room. While we had a lovely afternoon we did discover that this venue has a very limited capacity as we were a bit cramped with the crowd that attended.
October 2008 the third annual Witches' High Tea brought us back to the beautiful Grand America Hotel once again filling their lobby with Witches decked out in their finest.
October 2009 the fourth annual Witches' High Tea at the beautiful Grand America Hotel filling their lobby with even more Witches dressed to the nines.
October 2010 the fifth annual Witches' High Tea at the beautiful Grand America Hotel transforming their lobby into a sea of pointy hats.
October 2011 the sixth annual Witches' High Tea filling the lobby of the beautiful Grand America Hotel with a plethora of Witchy Regalia.
October 2012 the seventh annual Witches' High Tea engulfing the exquisite lobby of the Grand America Hotel with a deluge of Witchy Haberdashery.
October 2013 the eighth annual Witches' High Tea overflowing the elegant lobby of the Grand America Hotel with a torrent of Witchy Glamour.
October 2014 the ninth annual Witches' High Tea rivaling the beautiful lobby of the Grand America Hotel with the enchantment of their Witchy Magnificentness.
October 2015 the tenth annual Witches' High Tea filling the lobby of the beautiful Grand America Hotel with a deluge of Witchy Haberdashery.
While the Witches' High Tea is our signature event it is not the only event we host throughout the year. Every December we have the Witches' Wassail. For this event we decorate our hats for Yule and go out on the town singing Yule carrols. Then in the spring we hold a Mad Hatter Tea Party in which we decorate our hats for spring and give a little nod to Alice and that Mad Hatter at the Beehive Tea Room.
Stay tuned... there is no telling what we will plan next. Better still, come join us in the fun!
