Pagan Pride Day 2013

Yesterday, Saturday March 16th, the committee met at a home in Arlington to discuss several topics in our plans for Pagan Pride Day 2013. We have been researching venues in Fort Worth, Arlington and Dallas to try to locate one that will be best suited for vendors, attendees and all others in space, basic needs, rental costs, allowed activities (ie. amplified music, open flames, vending, electricity accessibility, etc.) We are looking at Saturday September 28th or Saturday October 5th to hold the event and lots of things are developing. Please stay tuned here as I have more information I can share with everyone. Soon there will be email addresses set up for the committee members who are in charge of the various functions involved such as vendors, entertainment, promotion, coordination, etc.

Our committee is made up of volunteers from many various traditions represented in our community and is not about any one particular group or person. It is our goal to have a fair and balanced representation of the local Pagan Community involved in all aspects of planning this event on a year to year basis. If you would like to help us, we would love to have you!

A Facebook Page will be launched soon. Look for a link to it to be posted here.

Thank you and many Blessings To All!

      Hi Jen!

      For the most part any Pagan related topic or anything that would be of general interest to most Pagans is fair game.

      Thanks,

      Troy

      Hi Marci! Sorry for the delayed response. Your post got buried in with a bunch of spam bot posts and I had to dig it out. Yikes! Anyway, I’m not sure if the events you are asking about are our fund raising events leading up to the main event which will be DFW Pagan Pride Day itself which will be held this year on October 5th at The Bath House at White Rock Lake in Dallas or if the events you wish to know about are the entertainment, workshops, rituals, etc which will be held during PPD 2013. There are quite a few things in the works though and you can receive announcements straight to your email box by joining our Announcement Only Yahoo! Group at :
