Western MA Pagan Pride day is one of many Pagan Pride Day events that take place worldwide. As a nonprofit organization we strive to establish awareness of earth-centered spiritual traditions in our local communities. People of all faiths (or none) and walks of life are welcome.
There is no admission fee to the event, however we ask that you bring a cash donation for our charity drive. We will be collecting cash donations for our favorite charity, the Northampton Survival Center.
You can come expecting to find information about paganism in many of its forms, experience open harvest ritual, musical entertainment, workshops (classes) and many vendors for a fun, family friendly community-driven event. There are also a number of restaurants and cafes in the area.
This year we will be in downtown Northampton, in the plaza at Kirkland Ave where the Tuesday Farmers Market takes place. This is between the Parking Garage and the back of Thorne’s Marketplace. There is ample short- and long-term parking in downtown Northampton. Note that the Armory St Parking Lot, which borders the site, is a 3-hour maximum lot. Metered parking in Northampton is done now by zones and plate numbers, so if you are planning to stay longer than 3 hours, you can’t just move your car to another spot in the same lot/zone and pay again. Extended, inexpensive lot parking is available around the corner on Hampton Ave., or you can park in the garage that overlooks our site; the cost is only .75/hour, and the first hour is always free.
