Northern Virginia Pagan Pride Day

Learn about and celebrate the NoVa Pagan Community

September 12, 2009

Lee District Park (Alexandria, VA)

(www.novappd.org)

 


Join the Northern Virginia Pagan community as we gather to celebrate our community, learn about the various groups, do some shopping, attend workshops and otherwise strengthen our community.

 

Starting this year, the NoVa PPD is being organized and managed by representatives from various groups in Northern Virginia.  Also, starting this year groups can register for space at no charge.  The goal of this event is to bring non-pagans together with pagans to explore what paganism is, as well as to bring together pagans with other pagans in the area.

There are several parts to this event:

1. Food Drive: Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable canned food donation for a local non-profit organization. We seek to share our abundant harvest with those in need.

2. Public Ritual: The cornerstone of Pagan Pride Day is a public religious ceremony so that the community can come together to celebrate the Autumnal Equinox. 

3. Workshops: Not only do we seek to educate the public about what paganism is, we also seek to educate ourselves. We will offer several workshops on a variety of topics throughout the day, brining in volunteer presenters and speakers.

4. Merchant Booths: We will invite local new age and metaphysical stores as well as local groups to set up booths at this event.  

5. Local Group Tables: We will invite local groups from all over the area to represent their groups and share information about themselves with the community.  Local groups will not be charged a registration fee! 

The Pagan Pride Project is a non-profit organization with the goal of promoting the pagan identity through education, activism, charity, and community. This organization works on the international, national, regional, and local levels, and is the eleventh year.

The Pagan Pride Project attempts to define paganism:

  • Practicing religion that focuses on earth based spirituality; and/or
  • Focusing religious or spiritual attention primarily on the Divine Feminine; and/or
  • Honoring, revering, or worshipping a Deity or Deities found in pre-Christian, classical, aboriginal, or tribal mythology; and/or
  • Practicing religion or spirituality based upon shamanism, shamanic, or magical practices; and/or
  • Creating new religion based on past Pagan religions and/or futuristic views of society, community, and/or ecology.
