Paganicon Returns!

755

The Midwest’s Largest Indoor Pagan Conference back by popular demand

Paganicon is a 3-day Pagan conference being held March 17-19, 2023 in Plymouth, Minnesota. Paganicon is organized by Twin Cities Pagan Pride (TCPP) and a host of volunteers to provide an educational and social venue for Pagans, Wiccans, Heathens, Druids and people of other folk, craft, indigenous or magickal traditions. Join workshops and panel discussions on a multitude of Pagan related topics from very knowledgeable speakers from all over the US, Canada, and Europe. You will learn something new, find sources of inspiration and share in discussion with likeminded folk.

Metamorphosis is the theme for this year’s magickal gathering

Workshops range from very basic information to more advanced practices and theory. You will be able to participate in many rituals that are happening throughout the weekend. We include in our ritual lineup an opening ritual that serves as a bonding moment for our community regardless of tradition and a way to delve into a magical and intentional mindset for the rest of the weekend. The schedule for the workshops and rituals are posted on our web site. Paganicon’s 2023 theme is Metamorphosis: Rebirth of a Community. Many people who enjoy attending in costume for the Friday Night Concert and Equinox Masquerade Ball held on Saturday Night will use our theme for inspiration.

TCPP and a handful of Pagan community groups will be hosting party rooms throughout the weekend that provide a welcoming social space for all our conference attendees. They are the perfect place to hang out and make new friends. One of the more unique features of Paganicon is the Third Offering “temporary gallery”, which was created to showcase fine arts and crafts made by Pagan and Polytheistic artists, within the context of their own culture. Artists from all over the U.S. will be displaying and selling all types of visual media. The Art Gallery is free and open to the public. The Paganicon Vendor room is an integral part of the Paganicon experience! You will be able to shop pagan-oriented wares from local craft persons as well as those from outside the Twin Cities area. The vendor room is open to the public and does not require a conference badge to visit and shop.

Our Healing and Divinations Rooms also offers services to the public that do not require registration. Professionals Healers will be there to offer energy, sound, and crystal healing services as well as Reiki. The Readers will be offering different types of divination services from tarot cards to tea leaves. There is an online scheduling app available so that you can book your appointment in advance if you wish. In addition, there will be a Meditation Room available if you need some peace, quiet and some time away from people to reflect. It will have several comfortable chairs with minimal lighting and white noise. There is no charge to use the meditation room.

Guests of Honor this year include Witch, teacher, writer and healing practitioner Christopher Penczak, founder of the Temple of Witchcraft tradition and system of magickal training. Andras Corban-Arthen, founder and spiritual director of the EarthSpirit Community and president of the European Congress of Ethnic Religions. Coming all the way from Wales is Kristoffer Hughes, Chief of the Anglesey Druid Order and the award-winning author. Kristoffer is also a part time Welsh language television actor and presenter.

Entertainment at the Friday Night Concert are festival favorites Sharon Knight and Winter. Opening the Equinox Masquerade Ball will be The Mechanist & The Star Goddess, a dynamic music & dance project with Tempest, Nathaniel Johnstone, and Davis Petterson. The party continues with the amazing local band Open Investigation with their fusion of 60’s to 70’s style Classic Rock and Blues with Folk-Rock harmonies, gutsy vocals, and a Psychedelic backbone.
