Have you ever been to a Pagan Festival?
NeoPagan festivals have been going on for over 2 decades and continue to rise in both attendance and numbers of different festivals. If you have attended a fest, what did like best? If you have never been to Pagan festival, what do you think you would enjoy most? The community interaction? Meeting the Big Name Pagans? The Dancing? The Drumming? The Music? The large group rituals?

| I'm On The West Coast, And The Only Pagan Convention Within Easy... ||Jul 30th. at 1:07:12 am EDT|

I'm on the West Coast, and the only pagan convention within easy reach is PanTheaCon. I went for the first time last year. Best features:
- Questionnaire for the attendees to fill out, rating various features of the con and asking for what should be different next year;
- big, varied, splendiferous dealers' room;
- workshops that actually had some intellectual (not "pedantic") content, such as "Queer Magick" and "Pagans of Color."
- and a subtle but persistent coalescing of magickal energy that made all kinds of contact with deity much easier. This in a Hilton hotel in downtown San Francisco!

Pagan Meets? I try to avoid them as much as possible.
Went to some in the early days, but lost interest in a record hurry.
Mainly, the "celebrities" who float in the air, rather than walk on the ground with the common herd, turn me off.
Drumming, drumming, drumming past the first croak of dawn makes you wish you brought an uzi.
Every newage sewage fad hitting the trail at the Psychic Fairs shows up at Pagan Meets also.
Rituals geared to a political agenda, rather than the Art Magical, create their own astral abortions.
People who can't keep their clothes on, but who really should, make life
not worth watching.
People past their prime being nymphs and fauns in the bushes can be scary.
Pagan Meets? I'd rather not.
