Pagan Pride Day

 

The Antelope Valley’s Annual Pagan Pride Day Festival.

September 27, 2014 at George Lane Park in Quartz Hill

Pagan Pride Day is a day of fellowship, ritual and education for pagans and non-pagans alike. The goal is to provide literature and background for the various pagan, heathen and other earth centered religions that are available. Pagan Pride Day is a non-profit event open to like-minded and tolerant individuals.

Come out and join us for a day of fun, music, and celebration. Don’t forget to bring your cash and checkbook as we have plenty of vendors to visit! Come out, buy a raffle ticket or a T-shirt or both!

Admission

In lieu of admission, please bring some food to donate! We will be collecting non perishable food items for the Sunrise HIV/Aids Coalition Food Bank.

This charity provides food to families of those affected by HIV and AIDS. Many such families are on disability or welfare, and may not have enough to make ends meet month to month.

Food Locations

We cannot guarantee there will be a food vendor this year. As such we recommend you bring a picnic lunch for the day. However if you wish to eat out, there are several food locations along 50th St. West to the east of our location. There are also restaurants along Avenue L to the north of our location. These are concentrated at 40th St. West and 30th St. West.

Volunteers

We are seeking active volunteers to help out with different activities throughout the day. These include site setup, site cleanup, raffle booth, leading workshops, holding rituals, runners, and more. We will be needing help the day of the event, and also coordination of the event ahead of time. Volunteer meetings start in May. If you’re interested in volunteering, please let us know.

Please sign up to be notified, or join our Pagan Pride volunteer email list.
