SLPS enjoyed a pleasant, hot day at Liberty Park at the 16th Annual Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day on Saturday, August 12, 2017. The day was clear, with a bright shining sun. President Muad’Dib opened the festivities with a morning druid ritual to the Celtic sun god Lugh at 10am. Twenty five people gathered, hands were raised, and the drinking horn passed around in offering to open the wallets of customers, promote inclusivity, and all around good Pagan community.

A steady flow of patrons came through the park. SLPS read tarot and palms. It was very hot at points in the afternoon, and the food vendor failed to show, but frozen ice cones cooled those in the park. About twenty five vendors showed from across Utah and Montana. Raven Digitalis was present signing his newly released booked Esoteric Empathy: A Magickal and Metaphysical Guide to Sensitivity. He led the closing right, an alchemical ceremony to Baphomet at 5pm.

Witches, wizards, druids, vikings, and Pagans gathered to celebrate community and unity. Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day was held on Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 10-6. Held at Murray Park, the festival allows the Pagan community to educated, show their pride, and “come out of the broom closet” if they feel so. This Year’s theme was “A Harvest of Balance and Blessings.”

This year’s festival included over 20 vendors, a kid zone, Belly Dancing by Thia, and music. The opening ritual was performed by the staff of Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day. The day was sunny, shiny, and hundreds of people strolled in to shop, look, and attend public ritual. Even the local LDS missionaries stopped by for a look around.

SLPS did very well, needing a double booth this year for their $5 tarot readings. They were discounted last minute as an extra bonus for customers and to beat out competition. The closing ritual was performed in the Norse tradition by Harts Hearth Clan of Tooele Utah.

The 13th Annual 2014 Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day fell on Saturday, September 6, 2014. From 10-6, vendors, groups, and guests enjoyed a sunny day at Murray City Park. SLPS was not in attendance since the members chose to attend the 2nd Annual 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con, happening on the same day. We swung by to check in, grab programs, and see the vendors. President Muad’Dib picked up a very nicely done ouija board by Goats creations.

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!
