Dear Friends,
In this year of the pandemic, 2020, we will be unable to meet in person to celebrate and educate about paganism.

We have prepared a short harvest ritual/meditation in the hopes that though we can’t be together in person, we can be together in Spirit.

We hope to see your faces next year, on the second Saturday of September.

Since we won’t be able to have our annual food drive, we are asking, if you are willing and able, to please support our neighbors at the Northampton Survival Center. They need support now more than ever. Here is a special donation button for them, which I will leave until Samhain. By donating this way, we can track our collective amount and present them with our WMPPD donation for the year. Just click on their logo.

Donations to Western MA Pagan Pride Day are also gratefully accepted. We have an extremely small budget, and this day happens because of a lot of hard work from a very small group of dedicated volunteers.

Finally, visit out revised Merchant Page, where you’ll find information to help you shop their products online this year, until you can see them again in person. Our merchants are all small business owners, and need community support if they are to survive in this time of crisis.

Thank you!

Chris LaFond,
Local Coordinator WMPPD

Western MA Pagan Pride day is one of many Pagan Pride Day events that take place worldwide. As a nonprofit organization we strive to establish awareness of earth-centered belief systems in our local communities. People of all faiths and walks of life are invited to join us on SATURDAY, September 12th, 2020.

There is no admission fee to the event, however we ask that you bring a non-perishable food item for our food drive. There is some free parking available at the Civic Center, and more on the surrounding streets. You can come expecting to experience open ritual, musical entertainment, workshops (classes) and many vendors for a fun, family friendly community driven event. There will be some food for purchase on site, and there are a number of restaurants and cafes in the area.
