• Today is the Day! Hip, Hip, Hooray!

    This is it! It’s so exciting! We’ve been working for months, and the day is finally here.

    Vancouver Island Pagan Pride Day Gives Back to the Cowichan Valley – On Saturday, August 13th, Charles Hoey Park will host the 16th Annual Vancouver Island Pagan Pride Day.

    Vendors, artisans, and spiritual groups from all over Vancouver Island will come together to celebrate diversity in spirituality. Pagan Pride Day is an international project that promotes tolerance and understanding between people with different belief systems through education, activism, charity and community.

    The time of year is carefully chosen to celebrate the harvest and share the fruits of our efforts with our community. Each year the Pagan Pride committee chooses charitable organizations that have a positive effect in the community and dedicates its hard work and energy towards raising donations for those organizations.  This year Pagan Pride is excited to be collecting donations and non-perishable food items for Cowichan Green Community. Previous events have raised considerable amounts for MARS Wildlife Rescue Society, the Comox Valley Food Bank, LUSH Valley Food Society, Greenways Land Trust, the Goldstream Food Bank and Life Cycles Community Projects. Vancouver Island Pride Day aims to show the public what Paganism is about through a daylong collection of workshops, rituals and demonstrations.

    It’s also a time for the Pagan community to come together and celebrate our diversity with live entertainment and vendor tables with goods and services from pagan or pagan friendly businesses and organizations. “It’s going to be challenging to top last year’s event, but we have a great team.”

    “We’re all looking forward to connecting with and contributing to the community,” says Mary Malinski, High Priestess of the Circle of the Sacred Muse and Maiden of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church of Canada.

    The 16th annual Vancouver Island Pagan Pride Day will be held on Saturday, August 13th at Charles Hoey Park in Duncan from 11 am to 4 pm. The event is open to everyone and admission is free, though donations for the Food Bank and Cowichan Green Community are highly encouraged.

  • Vendor Highlight: Gypsy Jewelry

    Vancouver Island Pagan Pride welcomes back Gypsy Jewelry!

    My passion is to find and collect interesting pieces of an old vintage jewelry because those pieces have a souls and history to be told. Each piece I found when traveling around the world and country. I take them apart, clean, repair and make a new piece of necklace, earrings, bracelets or rings… each piece has story to tell and so I am turning those collections of stones, brooches  or medallions into something rebellious but interesting.
