Pagan Pride Day Festival Returns to York, Pennsylvania

Post date: Sep 14, 2013 6:20:54 PM

York, Pennsylvania - Just in time for the Autumn Equinox, the second annual Pagan Pride Day Festival comes to York, Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Samuel S. Lewis State Park, 6000 Mt. Pitsgah Road in York from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.  People of all ages and spiritual backgrounds are welcome.


A time of thanksgiving in many Pagan traditions, the Autumn Equinox celebration will include

performances, information booths, vendors, and other activities. An item of non-perishable food will be accepted as admission and donated to local charities.


The International Pagan Pride Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering religious diversity and inclusion through education, activism, charity, and community. Pagan Pride celebrations are held annually around the world within two weeks of the Autumn Equinox with a food drive to give participants a way to share with those who are less fortunate while making a positive statement about Paganism.  


The vast majority of Pagans enjoy a religion emphasizing respect for nature, humanity, and oneself. Modern Paganism, or Neo-Paganism, is a growing religious movement based on combinations of ancient polytheism, modern eco-spirituality, and reverence for the Divine as both masculine and feminine.


Food donations will be given to H.O.P.E. (Help for Oncology Problems & Emotional Support) in New Freedom, Pennsylvania. This event is sponsored by Everlasting Myst Metaphysical & Gift Shoppe, Mystic Circle Spiritual Education & Counseling, and other area businesses.
