As the harvest season begins, communities across North America, and around the world start celebrating Pagan Pride.
Typically held around the Autumnal Equinox, Edmonton’s celebration is to feature an Autumn 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!
