Well, we think it's suffice to say that the 2019 Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Day was a huge success! There was a lot of hard work put into planning and executing this year's festival. We just wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who played a part. We couldn't do it without all of the amazing speakers, performers, vendors, community groups, and volunteers.
Quite a few donations were collected for Grace at the Greenlight that will be put to good use, helping those battling homelessness.
Another part of this year's success was due in part to our amazing hosts, the Clouet Gardens and Tigermen Den.
Remember, Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride hosts several events throughout the year. Besides having a good time, we use these events as an opportunity to connect and network with others in the Pagan community....
We have decided to team up with a new community organization for this year's event, Grace at the Green Light. This great organization works with people who have become homeless to form connections within the community in order to get off the streets. They also provide hot breakfast to those in need daily. While admission to Pagan Pride Day is always free, we would ask for you to bring an item to donate. Items in highest demand are NEW men's & women's socks, toothbrushes & toothpaste, and deodorant (travel or regular size). Just bring the item to the event, and we'll be sure it gets to someone who could really use it. Thanks for your support!
We are so excited to share the schedule for this year's GNO Pagan Pride Day. We have lined up a number of experts in their respective magical fields, talented performers, and amazing merchants to provide a day of eye-opening experiences. Check out the schedule here so you know what you don't want to miss! Remember, the event is free to enter, although we do ask for you to bring an item to donate to our chosen charity Grace at the Greenlight (more info coming soon).
Would you like to get up close & personal to help us put on the best Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Day yet? Join us on Saturday September 28 throughout the day. We can use all types of help and skill levels, starting with set-up and assisting vendors, greeting guests, serving food/drinks, selling t-shirts, picking up trash, and ending with tear down. Volunteers are assigned two-hour shifts depending on the person's skill level, interests, and availability. We'll be glad to schedule your shift around presentations and performances that you'd like to attend. Please visit our volunteer page to learn more and sign up. Thanks so much for your help; we couldn't do it without you!
Summer has just flown past, and the 2019 Pagan Pride Day is right around the corner. Our theme for this year's event, being held on Saturday September 28 at the Clouet Gardens, is Celebrating our Roots. We are finalizing the list of speakers, performers, and vendors, but can't wait to share all of the excitement with you very soon. We'll also be needing the help of our great network of volunteers, and will be releasing the sign-up form soon. We are really looking forward to Celebrating our Roots with you!
We are excited to announce that the 2019 GNO Pagan Pride Day is moving to the Clouet Gardens. The Gardens are located at 710 Clouet Street in the Bywater. This beautiful location will allow us to connect more with nature during the festival. The perimeter is lined with shade and fruit trees, and bountiful flowers, herbs, and shrubbery decorate the park.
We will also be using the Tigerman's Den for some of the day's activities. This air-conditioned space will host the classes and food sales.
It is great that this year's venue will allow us to have the best of both worlds: an outdoor area to connect with nature, and an indoor area to keep cool.
The Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Project is actively searching for new board members and committee members. We take pride in collaborating with a diverse group of spiritual seekers. We share a common goal of promoting the rights of practitioners of Earth-based traditions and educating the community.
Hear from veteran board member Emily Snyder, who was instrumental to the creation of Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride.
"I am the last remaining original board member of the Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Project, and after seven years, I’m retiring at the end of the year. And I’m here to tell you why you should take my place:
2. Community connections.
3. Learning experiences.
4. Resume builder.
6. The satisfaction of contribution.
I’m not going to lie. It’s a lot of work. And it’s a two-year...
We wanted to give a huge shout-out to everyone who came to the 2018 Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Day and made it a success. We had a great team of entertainers, speakers, vendors, and volunteers who put a lot of work into the event. The First Unitarian Universalist Church was a wonderful host. And of course, everyone who attended the festival is much appreciated too!
If you want to keep the fun going, be sure to check out our Wicked Happy Hour on Friday October 26 at the AllWays Lounge. We will continue Pagan Pride throughout the year, so watch for more upcoming events.
We have been working hard behind the scenes to put the finishing touches on the festival. There will be so many great, fun, engaging, and exciting things to do tomorrow~we can't wait! Some highlights of the day include talks by our honored guest Orion Foxwood, performances by Spiral Rhythm and Haggis Rampant, vendors of all types of magickal wares, readers, workshops from local practitioners, and representatives from several community groups.
While we do not charge an admission fee for this incredible day, we do ask that you bring a donation for one of our non-profit beneficiaries: Food for Friends and the Love a Pit Foundation. Food for Friends needs non-perishable food items (NO GLASS PLEASE), like canned food, dry beans, pasta, grits, and tuna, as well as personal care items like dish soap, paper towels, laundry detergent, and bath soap....
We are so excited to announce the schedule for the 2018 Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Day! The day is filled with performances, workshops, demonstrations, shopping, food & drink. Check out the schedule to plan out your day. See you Saturday!
