    Atlanta Pagan Pride Day (GA)

    October 5th saw beautiful weather and over two hundred visitors at the Atlanta Friends Place, a Quaker Church, in Decatur, Georgia, for the 2013 Atlanta Pagan Pride Day event. This was a huge outdoor event that saw many people coming together for fellowship, ritual, workshops, entertainment, and of course the vendors.

    A harvest ritual was conducted by the House of Ravenwood to celebrate and give thanks for the bounty of the harvest, since this event fell between two of Paganism’s harvest Sabbats.

    Instructional classes were abundant and included a class on the magical properties of wands, the sacred elder tree, and the bardic path. The learned presenters passed along their knowledge of their subjects to attendees.

    Information tables were placed and manned for all who wanted to learn more about certain groups. There was a table manned by members of the Covenant of the Unitarian Universalist Pagans, and the Grove of the Red Earth (ADF) to name just a couple.

    Vendor’s booths abounded at the event as well. The vendors who were there included such great artisans and retailers as The Unicorn Tradition, The Ravenwood Tradition, Creations of Earth and Fire, Canes & Wands, The Circle of the Sacred and the CSD School of Shamanism. Temperance Tarot was on site to provide readings as well.

    What Pagan event could possibly be complete without the wonderful entertainment? Spiral Rhythm, Arthur Hinds (from Emerald Rose), and Blue Spirit Wheel were there with their special brands of music. Copious Jones was also there. They are a fabulous up and coming group from the Atlanta area. In the words of Rev. Dave Cobb (Circle of the Sacred Drum), “This group blew my socks off, it was like Dave Mathews meets blues infusion, but much much better...”

    Rev. Dave Cobb has provided photos and information. I would like to thank him for helping get this report out to the public.
