Jes'Tamaline Night was a celebration in the Turamzzyrian province of Riverwood.

The celebration honored a local spirit known as Jes'Tamaline. It was felt important to honor her to ensure that no ill fortune befalls the land of the barony. The celebration occurs on the last night of Ivastaen with singing to the goddess in her honor, draping trees and people with garlands of flowers, and dancing through out. It was also a custom for maidens to sleep outside beneath the trees on the festival night, with hope of receiving guidance for their lives as women.
