Front Range Pagan Pride Festival
 
Front Range Pagan Pride Festival
Denver, Colorado, USA
Mid September
Description
Front Range Pagan Pride, a local non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of religion and elimination of prejudice and discrimination based on religious beliefs, is holding a festival on Saturday September 12, 2009, 11am to 5pm at Stapleton Central Park. The purpose of the festival is to three-fold. • First it is an opportunity for Pagans to network with one another and to celebrate the Autumn Equinox with an open ritual. • Secondly we request attendees to bring a book to donate to the Alexandria Temple, a charitable activity, to share our abundant harvest with others in need, and to make a clear statement to those who have misconceptions about Paganism. We know that our ethics, based on concern for ecology, personal responsibility, and individual freedom, mean that we feel strongly called to actions of social responsibility. It is important for us to highlight our similarity to other religions in that regard. • And lastly it is an opportunity for the local media and other interested people to come learn the truth about Paganism in our communities, refute common misconceptions, and draw political attention to Paganism in order to try to prevent legislative discrimination against Pagans
Performers
Local bands Heartbeat, Jennafire, Pandora Celtica and Australian wonder Wendy Rule. Also appearing is River and Joyce Higginbotham, authors of "Paganism, an Introduction to Earth-Centered Religions", "Pagan Spirituality" and most recently "ChristoPaganism".
