Memphis Pagans Take Pride

Posted By on Fri, Sep 28, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The days of witches being burned at the stake are long gone, but a few misperceptions about paganism still carry over from centuries ago. (They don't worship the devil, for instance.)

The annual Pagan Pride Day (PPD) event at Shelby Farms, Shelter #7 aims to clear up any confusion about paganism through workshops, info booths, and a public ritual celebrating the Autumn Equinox. Vendors will be on hand peddling gemstones, jewelry, and other pagan items.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is two cans of food for Friends for Life. Last year, PPD collected 279 pounds of food.

Pagan Pride celebrations are held annually around the world within four weeks of the Autumn Equinox. This year, there are over 130 events scheduled in 48 states, five Canadian provinces, and other locations worldwide.
