Philadelphia Pagan Pride event deemed ‘really fun’ by locals

This weekend saw Philadelphia’s Pagan community come out and celebrate their beliefs in style. The event was dubbed ‘Philadelphia Pagan Pride’ and took place from 10 AM – 6 PM in Clark Park. Overall, more than one hundred local Pagan’s attended and the consensus was that it was a successful day for the community.

Here, they danced, sang, held workshops, and also had stalls selling Pagan memorabilia. The event was free to attend and even had a Pagan rapper, as well as other quirks such as tea reading. As seen below, there were a number of Pagan items on sale at the festival. We interviewed a Pagan named Jane Simon who attended the event and claimed: “It’s just been really fun. I love that we have this really nice community who can get together and celebrate our beliefs like this.”


Despite Paganism dying out thousands of years ago, it has made a comeback in recent years across the USA. At the same time, it is still mostly regarded as a fringe religious group for most people and the number of practicing Pagans remains fairly small. In some modern cases, Paganism has even been branded Satanic and has not always been represented well by the media. Nonetheless, this event looked harmless enough and even had kids in attendance.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first Pagan festival in Philly either, as previous events have taken place dating back for a few years now. Based on this, it looks as though the Philadelphia Pagan Festival looks to be a permanent fixture and will most likely happen again next year.
