Fort Wayne’s first international Pagan Pride Day 2014 will be held on October 4, 2014 at Memorial Park Pavilion in Fort Wayne, Indiana starting at 11:00 AM and going until 5:00 PM. The Pavilion is located @ 2301 Maumee Ave. Fort Wayne, Indiana. People of all ages and spiritual backgrounds are welcome. The event will include information booths, entertainment, and other activities celebrating the Autumn Equinox, a time of thanksgiving in many Pagan traditions. Any item of non-perishable food or dog/cat food will be accepted as admission and donated to Community Harvest Food bank or ASPCA charities. This year’s event will feature a carry-in potluck lunch with chili provided by the officers of FWIPP. Please bring a dish to share, your own eating utensils, something to drink (no alcohol), and a great attitude to share!
The International Pagan Pride Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of prejudice and religious discrimination through education, activism, charity and community. Pagan Pride celebrations are held annually around the world within two weeks of the Autumn Equinox. Over fifty cities participated in 1999 and this year there are 67 scheduled events in 33 states and five Canadian Provinces.
The food drive gives participants a way to share with those who are less fortunate while making a positive statement about Paganism. For decades Pagans have been wrongly accused of practicing devil-worship and performing "black magic.” In reality most 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.
Donations will be given to the Community Harvest Food Bank and the ASPCA in Fort Wayne. This event is sponsored by Pagan Pride Fort Wayne and area stores.
