Heartland Pagan Festival 2013
When: May. 23rd. 2013 - May. 27th. 2013
Where: McLouth, Kansas
Under the Dragon Moon
Event Details: Over twenty seven years ago, a small group of visionary Pagans deliberated, planned and brought forth the first Pagan festival to be held in the Kansas City area. The Council of the Southwinds could have scarcely envisioned that their first event, featuring Starhawk as its main guest speaker, would someday grow to become one of the largest Pagan festivals in the entire country.
After years of bouncing to and fro between Scout camps and other rented facilities, Heartland Pagan Festival came home to roost at beautiful Camp Gaea, the festival's home since 1992. Owned and cared for by Earth Rising, Incorporated, Gaea's 368 quiet acres hold some 1, 000 to 1, 300 Pagans each Memorial Weekend, the recurring dates for the annual event sponsored by Heartland Spiritual Alliance. Beginning with Open Ritual on Thursday evening and continuing through the Memorial Day closing ritual, Heartland Pagan Festival offers well-known Pagan authors and performers on an up-close and personal basis to curious and interested seekers of education and entertainment. Heartland Pagan Festival always strives to offer something of interest for everyone. To that end, our Honored Guests will include Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone (http://www.callaighe.com) andmusical guest Brian Henke (performing the Friday night concert) .
But...Heartland is about much more than entertainment and getting your books autographed. Each year, in addition to our featured guests' presentations, our attendees offer an amazing range of workshops and rituals designed to educate, enlighten and encourage understanding and acceptance of other paths and beliefs. Heartland's renowned Magickal Merchants circle features an unmatched assortment of beautiful and magickal items for consideration and purchase throughout the day.
At every turn attendees will see new and exciting features to enhance the festival experience, from our new PA system designed to make rituals and speakers more audible to a new Safety facility to ensure the best possible care for the less fortunate festival-goer.
If you are new to the Festival or even to Camp Gaea there will be a team of friendly newcomer sponsors to help you get your bearings and make you feel right at home. Find more info when you register.
In addition to workshops, bands, speakers and shopping, be sure not to miss the Vision Quest, now an established tradition. With a path that winds through the woods and dales of Gaea, questers will meet wise spirits and memorable characters as they experience a hero's journey of discovery and inspiration while night falls across the festival. Once darkness reigns, our spectacular bonfires will be lighted, and the drumming and dancing will begin!
From a modest and intimate beginning, Heartland Pagan Festival has grown into a sociological and spiritual event of remarkable proportions.
