The Connecticut Wiccan and Pagan Network (CWPN, Inc.) will mark the spring equinox with their annual Spring Fling Festival Saturday, March 16, from 2 to 10 p.m., at the American Legion Hall, 630 Grassy Hill Road, Orange.
The event is open to the public and will feature two classes on dancing and drumming, as well as local craft vendors, tarot and palm readers, a bake sale, raffle, potluck dinner, and a live concert by the band Incus.
“We will be performing a ritual to celebrate the return of the spring,” says CWPN Vice President Lisa Tonner. “It is a public event, and we welcome all those who wish to be a part of our festival.”
Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share for the potluck.
Tickets, at $20 in advance are available at cwpn.org through March 9, and $25 at the door, with reduced admission prices for children, members of the armed forces, and veterans.
There also will be a collection for the Pagans who Choose to Serve program, which provides care packages to active duty military Pagans. Some of the items needed are books, religious jewelry, incense, small religious figurines, and prepaid phone cards. More information and a complete list of items may be found on the CWPN website at cwpn.org, which also maintains a calendar of other Pagan-related events in the area.
The Connecticut Wiccan and Pagan Network is a nonprofit organization which provides education regarding the spiritual beliefs and practices of Witches and Pagans. People are asked to contact Lisa Tonner at email@example.com with any questions or are interested in helping at the event.
