The 18th annual Pagan Pride Day celebration will be held once again at Long Branch Park in Onondaga County.
The Central New York Pagan Pride Project’s Autumn Equinox Festival is the local observance of Pagan Pride Day for Syracuse, NY and the surrounding area.
The Pagan Pride Project is organized around three goals:
- Public ritual:
A public gathering where Pagans can network with each other and celebrate an Autumn Equinox ritual.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
