The 5th Annual Frederick Pagan Pride Day is THIS SATURDAY, September 14th, from 10 am to 6 pm and we are SO EXCITED!!!! Every year, people ask us what to bring. We do have a few suggestions: your sealed, non-perishable donation to The Foodbank Program or Frederick County Animal Control, a water bottle to fill at our water stations, a folding camp chair, sunblock if it’s sunny out, rain gear if rain is in the forecast, cash for raffle tickets ($3 each or 2 for $5) and vendors, and a notebook and something to write with. We’re looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!!

Admission is a donation to one of two organizations we are supporting this year.  You are welcome to bring an item of non-perishable commercially prepared food (no home canned goods, unfortunately) for The Foodbank Program operated by the Frederick Community Action Agency.  This year, Frederick Pagan Pride Day is also supporting Frederick County Animal Control.  Donations for the Adoption Center can also be given as admission.  FCAC is requesting UNOPENED PACKAGES of canned food of any variety, dry food (Iams is preferred, but they will take any sort), bleach, sponges and Dawn dish soap.  Other pet supplies are welcome, but must be UNOPENED.

Parking will be available on-site as well as at two overflow lots.  Shuttle Service will be running from the Park and Ride lots at the intersection of Elmer Derr Road.  The shuttle will run from 9:30 am to 6 pm.  Please consider carpooling as well.

Coming Out of the Broom Closet on Pagan Pride Day

PPDLogoFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Frederick, MD – Frederick’s very first Pagan Pride Day will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick. People of all ages and spiritual backgrounds are welcome. The event will include information booths, workshops, live music, vendors and other activities celebrating the Autumn Equinox, a time of thanksgiving in many Pagan traditions. An item of non-perishable food will be accepted as admission and donated to The Foodbank Program operated by the Frederick Community Action Agency.

The International Pagan Pride Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of prejudice and religious discrimination through education, activism, charity and community. Pagan Pride celebrations are held annually around the world within two weeks of the Autumn Equinox. In 2013, there were 98 Pagan Pride events across the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Rome and Austria. 2013 event attendance was 65,717: an increase in attendance by over 20,000 when compared to 2012. The events collected a total of 39,962.80 pounds of nonperishable food.

The food drive gives participants a way to share with those who are less fortunate while making a positive statement about Paganism. For decades Pagans have been wrongly accused of practicing devil-worship and performing “black magic.” In reality most Pagans enjoy a religion emphasizing respect for nature, humanity, and oneself. Modern Paganism, or Neo-Paganism, is a growing religious movement based on combinations of ancient polytheism, modern eco-spirituality, and reverence for the Divine as both masculine and feminine.

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick is located at 4880 Elmer Derr Road. Frederick Pagan Pride is hosted by Frederick CUUPS (Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans). For more information about the event or about Pagan religions, email Irene Glasse at frederickpaganpride@gmail.com.
