Join us for the 14th Annual
DURHAM PAGAN PRIDE DAY
Sunday, August 13, 11AM – 5PM
Rotary Centennial Park
Brock and Burns Sts., Whitby, ON
Pagan Pride Day is a chance for Pagans to network and find information about local businesses and artisans, Pagan meetups, common interest groups, religious groups and open events. It is an family-friendly educational event, where the general public is welcome to learn more about our diverse Pagan community and our beliefs and practices.
Attendees are encouraged to participate in the workshops, and chat with the local artisans and craftspeople displaying their wares throughout the day. All are welcome to join together to worship in ritual. Respectful observers are also welcomed to participate in the day, witness the rite and ask questions. Guests are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or household good for the food drive benefiting a local charity, along with a pot-luck item to share and appropriate items for spending the day outdoors.
Our event is family friendly, and a great opportunity to bring a picnic lunch and spend a day in the park playing games, attending rituals, making music, networking with fellow Pagans and celebrating the harvest with the Durham Pagan community and those who just want to learn more.
Rotary Centennial Park in Whitby, ON (click here for event location map) is close to parking, transit, and food. A children’s play area can be found at the southern end of the park.
