York, Pennsylvania - Just
in time for the Autumn Equinox, the second annual Pagan Pride Day Festival
comes to York, Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Samuel S. Lewis
State Park, 6000 Mt. Pitsgah Road in York from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.
People of all ages and spiritual backgrounds are welcome.
A time of thanksgiving in many
Pagan traditions, the Autumn Equinox celebration will include
booths, vendors, and other activities. An item of non-perishable food will be
accepted as admission and donated to local charities.
The International Pagan Pride
Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering religious diversity
and inclusion through education, activism, charity, and community. Pagan Pride
celebrations are held annually around the world within two weeks of the Autumn
Equinox with a food drive to give participants a way to share with those who
are less fortunate while making a positive statement about Paganism.
The vast majority of Pagans
enjoy a religion emphasizing respect for nature, humanity, and oneself. Modern
Paganism, or Neo-Paganism, is a growing religious movement based on
combinations of ancient polytheism, modern eco-spirituality, and reverence for
the Divine as both masculine and feminine.
Food donations will be given to
H.O.P.E. (Help for Oncology Problems & Emotional Support) in New Freedom,
Pennsylvania. This event is sponsored by Everlasting Myst Metaphysical &
Gift Shoppe, Mystic Circle Spiritual Education & Counseling, and other area
businesses. For more information about the event or about Pagan religions,
