The 12th annual Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day was a success! The festival began at 10am on Saturday, September 14, 2013 in Murray Park’s pavilions 1, 2, and 3 and lasted till 6pm. SLPS had a beautiful sacred space set up and offered free tarot readings. The shops Gypsy wagon of American Fork, UT, and The Typsy Gypsies of Lehi, UT were the neighbors for the day on either side of the SLPS. booth. The day opened with the morning ritual by the Four Dragons Clann of the 1734 Tradition and people filing in for free readings. As noontime approached, the heavens opened and rain poured down for twenty minutes on everyone. Most of the guests took cover under the canopies and pavilions and watched the bards and belly dancers perform their art. The rained stopped and the people returned. 4pm brought the closing ritual by Harts Hearth Clan of Grantsville. They performed a ceremony to Frey And Freyja in the northern Asatru tradition. 6pm was the close and everyone packed up to return home till next year’s pride. Till we meet again!

What a wonderful opportunity the U of U Pagan Society had this past Sunday, September 9, 2012 to table and have a booth at the 11th annual Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day in Murray Park. After getting lost a few times and finding the access to pavilions 1,2, and 3, everything was set up by 9:45, just in time for everyone to get there new UUPS t-shirts on and for the festival to start at 10am.

The opening ritual of the festival included a simple dancing ritual by the members of Earth Haven Coven and Crone’s Hollow. Shortly after the ritual, flocks of people came to the booth to to receive free tarot readings as well as to see the big joint altar set up by UUPS and one of the sister groups of UUPS The Iseum of the Divine Feminine-Fellowship of Isis. Thinking statues were for sale, several members had to be one watch to make sure none of the gods and goddess tried to leave with curious patrons. At noon, a thelemic ritual was performed by two members of Horus Oasis O.T.O. right next to the booth…  it was quite interesting trying to read the tarot with all the “hail Horus and AGLA”s!! A few people did utilize the opportunity and gave a few hails of their own at the joint altar and cleansed some items in the holy water representing the Goddesses.

As the day rolled on, the lines didn’t let up for the people wanting free ten card spread tarot readings.  Luckily, UUPS and ISD had several readers on hand to switch off with so everyone got a break, ate lunch and rested under the cool shade of maples and the tent while listening to traditional gypsy violin

Near the end of the festival about 4pm, Lei Loni Tilley, a mermaid of the great salt lake, made an appearance and one of Salt Lake’s finest didgeridoo players was blowing his way to fame at pavilion one. Even so, the line for tarot was so long, the sign had to be taken down to ensure the booth could be packed up by the closing time at 6pm!

All in all, it was a wonderful event. UUPS and IDF met and talked with hundreds of people as well as giving advice, news, comfort and solace to hundreds through the tarot.

Thanks to all who came and helped out at the booth at this years Salt Lake Pagan Pride Day. This year’s was hosted by Crone’s Hollow on Main street on September 10, 2011 from 9am-6pm. The smaller space was unable to allow for all the vendors that usually would have came. UUPS gave away lots of information, met new people, discussed why we’re here and even had a few people sign up! Live rock music provided by Lady of the Lake set the scene as the sun rose high in the sky before we were all rained out about 4:00 pm. As a bronze sponsor of Pagan Pride Day in Salt Lake City, UUPS was happy to attend, renew friendships, relationships and provide the support and inclusive of the pagan community in the Salt Lake Valley. Till next year!
