The planning committee for Salt Lake Pagan Pride met at IHOP on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at 10 am to discuss the 2016 festival. Out of ten, three people showed: Debra Hurst, Jen Coates, and SLPS President Muad’Dib. Much progress was made in the details, including an extensive list was made for vendors, author signing suggestions, $10 tshirts for the festival, logo contest, entertainment selections, and the program layout.

The committee is seeking to grow the festival and make it as inclusive as possible, with not just Pagan vendors, but those who support the community and provide services (like the library and Planned Parenthood). This year’s festival is booked for the northeast quadrant of Liberty Park in downtown Salt Lake City.

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!

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.
