Greetings, followers. Please don't be alarmed. I'm the ePR Coordinator for our local Pagan Pride and will be running a series of articles about it, so feel free to read about it if you like!
Performers of magic, magical performers, vendors of wonders, teachers of wisdom and just plain folks are warmly invited to help celebrate Athens Pagan Pride on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Bishop Park, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Modern Paganism, which arose in the middle of the last century, has been called the fastest growing religious movement in the world. Paganism encompasses many branches, paths and tradition including traditional and eclectic Wicca, Asatru/Heathenism, Druidry, Pagan reconstructionists, Discordianism, Thelema and countless others.
This year’s Pagan Pride Day is sponsored by Athens Area Pagans, an organization dedicated to facilitating communication, networking and connectivity within all parts of the Pagan community in and near Athens
