Southern New Hampshire Pagan Pride:
Southern New Hampshire Pagan Pride is a non-profit organization. Southern NH Pagan Pride Day is an annual event, held on the second Saturday of September. The purpose of this event is multi-fold. It is a day for the NH Pagan community to gather and celebrate our common bond. With many things to do such as public ritual, workshops, drumming circles, vendors, and activities for adults and children alike; this is sure to be an exciting day for all! Additionally, many of us see the huge need for community togetherness, and this is an excellent way for us to come gather and celebrate together. This event is also an education opportunity. This event is fully open to the public, media, and all other religious groups and is an opportunity for us to show others the truth about of our way of life. How can we hope to enlighten people about our beliefs and practices if we’re not willing to get out there and share with others? We also use this event to help those in need in our community. We as Pagans know the importance of sharing our bounty with those around us, so to foster this, admission is requested as a donation of non-perishable food or pet items to benefit the New Hampshire Food Bank or the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire. NH Pagan Pride has collected donations of thousands of pounds of food for these organizations in our past years’ efforts.
Pagan Pride Worldwide:
The Pagan Pride Project, Inc. is a global non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of prejudice and religious discrimination. Pagan Pride celebrations are held all over the world. Events feature a public ritual where Pagans gather and celebrate the autumn equinox and host a food drive or other charitable activity to share our abundant harvest with others in need. Many events also include merchants, live entertainment, book-signings, workshops and children’s activities. Events are media-friendly and designed to provide a positive public relations outlet for the Pagan community as a whole. Since the first Pagan Pride day in 1998, attendance has grown consistently, with worldwide attendance approaching 50,000.
