Event interest forms are up and active.
We are a free event to the public and so we rely on volunteers to keep things running. We have a special need for early risers who would like to help with set up and for those who are willing to stay until the last corner is swept and the chairs are all positioned correctly. We also have need for folks to help flag arriving cars of attendees away from the vendors and toward parking options. We will be having a couple of short work sessions leading up to the event to get things ready and to get volunteer positions planned out. Would you like to volunteer?
We are primarily an educational event. Many people come to learn about traditions, paths, faiths, and practices. If you would like to offer a class, activity, or discussion, please let us know.
Informational Booths and Vendors:
If you are interested in a Booth, table, or reading space, please follow the think to let us know of your interest.
Thank You and Blessings,
701 W. Howard Ave. Decatur, GA
9AM to 6PM – Inside and Out
Remember Cans for the Atlanta Community Food Bank
Many have asked what they can do to help. So, here is the rundown:
We are happy to have a few volunteers through the day but our greatest need is for set up time (6:15 or so for the very early risers or 7:00 AM for the general set up time and 5-7 PM for take down time). We need to clear the inside so that we can let the vendors set up. Also, we need assistance unloading the PPD items from our cars and setting up the area with signs, etc.
If you are interested in assisting please let our volunteer coordinator, Mehurt, know. Please include a contact cell number as well as special talents and abilities (such as able to assist in moving bulky items)
Also, the more groups of friends can carpool or shuttle each other from Decatur Square parking or MARTA the better. We are not able to provide shuttling due to agreements with our corporation, but that does not stop friends from offering each other rides :-)
If there is anyone who is experienced, available and willing to volunteer to work with sound, (working the sound board for a performer or two) .
If there is anyone available with a tape measure who is able to take some parking lot measurements and pictures for me very soon (before Sunday) please let me know and I will get you the details of what we need.
I have a small possible need for some assistance with some small tasks, most of which can be completed online and e-mailed.
Looking to borrow some orange cones (parking type) and possibly a sawhorse or two or an A-frame sign or two (which are outdoor safe).
Donation of construction paper and glue, and glitter for some children’s crafts.

Hello all, I hope you are all having a fun and safe weekend! Along with our 3 lovely entertainers Spiral Rhythm, Arthur Hinds and Blue Spirit Wheel, I also have one more exciting surprise announcement brewing up in my witchy cauldron. Any guesses??? Some of you may have seen them at a private party last night, or you may have recently seen them at Smith’s Old Bar. Others may be planning to check them out at the Moonshadow.

Hello lovely folks,
The events of the day are coming together nicely. You can read about our confirmed entertainers, classes, vendors, informational tables, etc. on our main website. I do still have something groovy brewing up in my witchy cauldron which I hope will be ready for announcing really soon!!!
This weekend’s call is for shares to friends, acquaintances or groups who may not have heard of Atlanta Pagan Pride Day. Every year it seems that I hear from people, just after the event, who are just finding out about it for the first time. I also hear and see postings from groups of pagan folks who felt unrepresented or under represented at Pride Day. So, if you know of folks from a tradition, faith, path, practice, group, coven, grove, student group, etc. who may not have gotten the word, let’s make sure they know that all are invited who are willing to come and share in the day in a positive way! There are still informational table and vending booth slots available. Find the interest form on our website www.atlantapaganpride.org Someone will contact you back about registering.
Blessings, Lady Arden
