2023 Autumn Equinox Festival | Pagan Pride Day

22nd CNY pagan pride day

September 16, 2023

 The 22nd 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:

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


A long-standing favorite, Father & Son strolling musicians who perform on a good many instruments for music of the Renaissance, Victorian, World Music, Celtic, Jazz Improv and more!

The Maenads is a performance art group using music, dance, drama, and spectacle, drawing from inspirations such as pagan ritual, folklore, nature spirituality, myth, goddess culture, and witch culture. The Maenads use invocation and ecstatic trance to facilitate their creations.

At CNY PPD they will enact a Harvest Dance, they will channel the spirit of the Autumn Crow, and enact interpretations of original music and chants created for the project.
Sun Pavilion 2:00 pm

Drum Circle

Let your spirit soar as your soul explores it’s primal roots. Join in the celebration of community as we echo the heartbeat of the Earth Mother.
