It’s finally here! The 3rd Annual Frederick Pagan Pride Day is this Saturday, September 16th, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick at 4880 Elmer Derr Road, Frederick, MD 21703! The festival opens at 10 am and runs till 6 pm. Admission is the donation of a non-perishable food item that will be given to The Foodbank Program operated by the Frederick Community Action Agency. Last year’s festival drew around 400 people over the course of the day and raised 391 pounds of food for The Foodbank Program. We’re hoping to top 400 pounds of donations this year!
See the full Pride schedule right here. Our event includes workshops, rituals, live music and entertainment, 30 vendors (including a food vendor), and representatives from eight local Covens, Groups and Charities.
Here’s a last-minute list of things you might consider bringing with you: a camp or other folding chair (or a picnic blanket) for attending the workshops and watching performances. There will be water filling stations, so a water bottle is also recommended. Remember to bring some money for our wonderful vendors, cash if you would like to enter the raffle, a hand drum or other percussion if you’d like to participate in the drum circle, and sunblock if you need it.
Speaking of the raffle, tickets are $3 each or $5 for two. All proceeds benefit Frederick Pagan Pride Day.
