I was definitely not expecting to see us mentioned on The Wild Hunt! 'We are in the middle of Pagan Pride season, and every year there are new events that are held in regions or cities that never had one before. This year marked the first Ann Arbor Pagan Pride Day. It was held Sept 17 on the Washtenaw Community College campus. The event boasted “a Peruvian fire ceremony by James Stovall, plus workshops on Druidry, Hood Magic, and magical cleaning, along with information booths, and vendors.” The event was visited by the local press, who published an article titled “WCC hosted its first Pagan Pride Event.” If you are hosting a unique or new Pagan Pride event, send TWH a press release. We want to share what is going on in local communities.'

The first ever Ann Arbor Pagan Pride Day is almost upon us! Here are the things you need to know if you're planning on attending:
* The event will be at the Community Park on the Washtenaw Community College campus. The easier way to access it is from the western entrance on Huron River Drive. We'll be on the left, across from the first parking lot you'll see on the right. Or just look for an open green space with several tents set up.

* There is no admission fee. Really. We do ask that everyone bring a food donation for Food Gatherers (our designated local charity group) but that's not a requirement. And while we will gladly accept donations to cover our costs for this year and hopefully get a head start on next year's event, there's no cost to attend.
* If you want to sit at some point (and I assume you all will), bring a camping or folding chair or blanket for yourself, if you can.
* Bring bottled water or something else to hydrate with.
* The food court on campus is closed on Saturdays, so we suggest that you bring your own food to the event. (Think of it as a huge picnic with merchants and belly dancers.) If you do need to go out quickly to get food, Washtenaw Avenue is about a mile south of the campus and has many varieties of restaurant and grocery store to choose from.
* Bathrooms can be found in the various campus buildings surrounding the park.
* The programming schedule can be found at http://annarborpaganpride.org/currentschedule.php (text) or http://annarborpaganpride.org/…/AAPPD%20Program%20Guide%209… (graphic).
* The weather forecast is currently calling for a chance of showers. Remember that you can wait out the rain under the programming tent, or inside the nearby campus buildings.
* May this day of ritual, learning, shopping, and celebration strengthen our many paths and our whole community!
See you on Saturday!
Blessings,
Rob

For those curious, we went with Food Gatherers because my Grove has been working with them for twenty years now and I know they do good work. If we're successful this year, we'll consider accepting donations for additional charity orgs next year.
