CAYA and CAYA-related Events at PantheaCon 2017

Here’s a list of events happening at PantheaCon this year which are hosted by CAYA or groups affiliated with CAYA, or which feature members of CAYA or people or groups who are friends of CAYA! This year, CAYA is teaming up with The Sacred Well and Hexenfest to host a suite in Room 1067. And we heartily support participation in this year’s Blood Drive!

Volunteers Needed for the 2016 Pagan Festival

This year’s Pagan Festival will be held on Saturday, May 7, from 11:00AM-5:30PM in Civic Center Park in Berkeley. The theme for this year’s event is Ancestral Wisdom. This event is the perfect chance to learn about many different traditions at the information booths representing Pagan organizations, to browse the treasures available from a variety of vendors, to enjoy music and dance performances, to meet authors, to hear speeches and presentations from our local Pagan luminaries (including current, past, and possibly future Keepers of the Light), to participate in community rituals, to honor the Elements and the Beloved Dead at the many altars set up in the park, and most of all to just be your Pagan/Witchy/Polytheist/Earth-based/Uncategorizable self among many other diversely like-minded beings!

The members of the Pagan Alliance put a lot of work into making this event a success - several of us spent all day yesterday at the storage space, working on the inventory and organization of all of the bins, tables, and magically odd-shaped items which will be packed into a truck early on Festival morning to be unloaded and set up at the park.  On the day of the Festival, we will also need a lot of volunteers to keep everything running beautifully.

There are a lot of different
volunteer positions and shifts which need to be filled before, during, and after the Festival.  From set-up to tear-down and a lot of Security, Stage, Author’s Circle, Children’s Craft Area, First Aid, and Information Booth running in between, it is volunteers who make this event what it is - a wonderful day for all those who attend and participate! Each volunteer will receive food, a t-shirt, and the enormous gratitude of the Pagan Alliance and everyone else who loves this event!

CAYA will have a booth, some our devotional groups will be creating altars and providing other exciting offerings, and members of CAYA will be conducting voter registrations and running a blood drive*! In addition to this, many members of CAYA will also be volunteering for the Festival itself - we had a
great time last year!

To find out more about the volunteer shifts and positions available and to sign up for the one(s) which suit(s) your preferences, skills, and schedule, please contact Arlynne Camire through
Facebook or email arlynnecamire@gmail.com or text 510-872-1188.

Blessed be the Volunteers, for they shall make this event Awesome!

 

*Update: Unfortunately, there will not be a Bloodmobile available for the Festival this year. We do expect to be able to run a blood drive at next year’s event.
