As the Pagan festival season winds down for another year, and the harvest season begins, communities across North America, and around the world start celebrating Pagan Pride. Already, pictures and videos are coming in of several different communities and how they celebrate Pagan Pride.

Typically held around the Autumnal Equinox, Edmonton’s celebration is to feature a Mabon ritual, an information booth on the different paths and organizations available in Edmonton, children’s activities, drumming and storytelling featuring Kriket Shaman, artisans and vendors, and a “share the harvest” food drive.

Guided largely by the principles of the international initiative of the Pagan Pride Project, many communities hold the festivities in a public place, to provide a positive public image of Paganism, what we believe, who we are, and help to dispel the negative beliefs held by some members of the larger community about minority religions. This is a free event, and all are welcome.

This year, the task of organizing Pagan Pride Day has fallen into the laps of the good folks at Where Faeries Live pagan shop in Edmonton. If you would like to volunteer at this event, please don’t hesitate to contact either Ed or Chris through the website, or at the Facebook page.

Edmonton’s Northern Tribes will be on hand to cover the festivities, so don’t forget to watch here after the event for full coverage, including photos and video!
