Turning the Wheels of Change – October 4th, 2014 – Jefferson Park, Menasha, Wisconsin
It’s that time of year again, time for our annual Spirit Fair fundraiser! All proceeds go to benefit the Fox Valley/Green Bay Pagan Pride Day. We’re very much looking forward to having fun with our community again! It’s going to be awesome event! We’re once again enjoying the hospitality of the Fox Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, which just underwent a new addition to their lovely building. The new addition has provided more space for vendors, readers and workshops, so we’re bigger and better this year!
If you’d like to be a vendor at this year’s Spirit Fair, you can register here at the website. The Reader spaces are already filled (wow!), but if you’d like to be on the waiting list in case we have any cancellations, you can register here at the website as well. Of course, we’re also going to have free workshops throughout the day. If you’re interested in providing a workshop, please fill out our Workshop application form. And then there’s the bake sale, with lots of yummy goodness available along with coffee, tea and bottled water. If you’d like to donate baked yumminess to our bake sale, please let us know what you’d like to bring at our Bake Sale Donation page.
Can’t wait until March 15th! Hope to see you all then!
Why the park change from last year, you ask? The City of Appleton is doing construction on Telulah Park (and Pierce Park) in September. While they did offer us dates, we were concerned the construction at the main entrance to the park might make it difficult for people to get to us or find us.
We’re really excited to be working with the City of Menasha to bring you an excellent Pagan Pride Day this year. We have the main pavilion with kitchen and the pavilion shelter next to it, so Yay for more shelter space!
For those of you that are interested in vending at our upcoming Spirit Fair on March 15th, early registration ends in just 3 days, at which time the registration fee will go from $45 to $60. The deadline for the discounted fee ends on February 7th at midnight. So if you’re looking to save yourself a few bucks, sign up soon! We’ve got lots of great vendors, readers and workshops already (there’s only 1 workshop space open!), as well as our yummy bake sale with complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water. Hope to see you there!
Yup, we’re into the quiet time of the season, while we reflect on our first annual Pagan Pride Day and take a moment to catch our breath. :) But don’t fret, we’re still pluggin’ away, getting ourselves situated for our 2nd annual Spirit Fair fundraiser, of which we will announce the official date soon! We’re also working on securing our location for 2014′s FVGB Pagan Pride Day. Stay tuned for updates coming coon!
We’d love to get your input! If you could take a moment and fill out our feedback form, it would be greatly appreciated. Feedback can be given anonymously if you choose. The more input we receive from the community, the better prepared we can be for next year :) You can submit your feedback at this site. http://www.fvgbpaganpride.org/ppd-2013/feedback
Thank you everyone for an incredible event! Everything went off without a hitch, and it was wonderful seeing so many friendly faces :) Not bad for our 1st annual Pagan Pride Day! Looking forward to getting to work on the 2nd annual (after a little rest first )
This Saturday is the big day! Can you believe it? We’re astonished how fast the summer flew by, but we’re ready and can’t wait to see you all there! You can see a full list of scheduled activities, events, presenters and merchants on our website, or pick up a program at our information booth in the main pavilion. There will be picnic tables available for seating, but if you’d like to have a comfy chair, feel free to bring one with you.
We’re also collecting school supplies for The Harbor House in Appleton, so stop by the information booth in the main pavilion to drop off your goodies! Here is a link to a list of supplies they currently need. Thank you for helping us support local community!
This Saturday we’ll be at Earthfest in Sheboygan letting folks know about the FVGB Pagan Pride Day! Come on out and say hi, lots of cool things going on (and we’ll have cookies)!
Just a quick reminder that the deadline to register for info booths, vendor/reader booths, workshops, rituals and sponsorships for this year’s Pagan Pride Day is this Thursday (8/15) at midnight. This will be the final deadline (volunteers can sign up until Sept. 4th), so if you’re on the fence, take the leap and get registered today. :) You have until 8/23 to get your fees in (and remember, info booths are FREE). Less than one month away, can you believe it?
Great news! We’ve decided to extend the signup deadline for vendors/readers/info booths, and workshops & rituals to August 15th! So, if you’ve been tossing around the idea of being part of this awesome event, you still have time to sign up! Don’t delay though, this will be the final deadline (we need time to get the final details together before the big day)
