2018 Autumn Equinox Festival | Pagan Pride Day

20th annual pagan pride day

September 15, 2018

 The 19th annual Pagan Pride Day celebration will once again be held at Long Branch Park in Onondaga County. 

The Central New York Pagan Pride Project’s Autumn Equinox Festival is organized around three goals:
2018 Pagan Pride Logo

Food Drive

A food drive (or other 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.

Public Ritual

A public gathering where Pagans can network with each other and celebrate an Autumn Equinox ritual.

Press Releases

Press releases and media coverage of our events in order to present the truth about Paganism to our communities, refute common misconceptions, and draw political attention to Paganism in order to try to prevent legislative discrimination against Pagans.
Contact us at cnyppd@gmail.com for further information.

Admission is Free!

We do, however, request your donation of a non-perishable food item, which in turn will be donated to The Food Bank of Central New York.

Music & Entertainment

Music… one of the threads that connect beyond language, beyond time, beyond the individual, reaching out and connecting the performer with the listener like a web. Art is how we paint space; music is how we paint time. When driven by spirit, it brings hearts and minds together, creating a bridge to understand what words alone never can.
