Mama Gina is a touring singer/songwriter, fearless storyteller, and wanderlust. With down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor, and straight-ahead, rhythmic, acoustic guitar, djembe and frame drum, she tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart. She sings of our responsibility to nurture both the mundane and the Divine. You’ll also meet Nine Toes the Bard, a 15th century Welsh lass who once dealt with a Dragon. She now travels the world, singing tales of love and battle, Pirates and Vikings, damsels and elves, trolls and that wicked Dragon that left her one digit shy. And you’ll encounter the intra-galactic Bard, Ava/She Walks the Stars, where you’ll find out how very human we still are, no matter how far we step into the void. Come laugh, weep, laugh some more and sing along with Mama Gina and all her alter-egos!

Spring is in the air, everything is in full bloom, we just completed Thunder Over Louisville this weekend, Beltaine is a couple of weeks away and we can smell the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby in the air.
Can you believe we are less than five months away from Louisville Pagan Pride Day, 2019! The staff of LPPD are lurking in the background to make sure we have a great time! We are choosing layouts, food vendors and other amenities.
We are accepting applications for merchants and information booths using this link and accepting workshop proposals using this link. If you have recently applied, don’t worry, we are getting to your application and our workshop coordinator will contact you soon!
Volunteering is easy! Click this link and come on out to play! Our volunteer coordinator will get back to you.
Just a reminder, parking is still free at the waterfront park for this event. If that changes, we will keep you informed.
Want to join is in supporting a good cause? We are hot and heavy in planning mode for this years event and we are looking to raise money for Louisville Pagan Pride Day. We have had a couple of tough years with the weather and we are asking for your help.
We, the Louisville PPD Committee would LOVE to thank EVERYONE who braved the weather, good AND bad for attending YOUR Louisville PPD 2018!
Banding together a couple of days before, with a focused intention to stave off the bad weather for a good portion of the day was instrumental in a very successful event. This was truly magickal.
We do apologize for shutting down early, but we paid close attention to the weather forecast and decided it was best for, not only the participants, but also for the merchants (who still had to pack up, sometimes more than two additional hours after the event) to close and complete the event.
We are, after all, witches, and we did not want a barrage of houses to suddenly appear in the sky and land on us. This would have been hard to explain. 🙂
Once again, thanks to EVERYONE who participated in LPPD 2018. You, the community, the merchants, and everyone who participated in our festival… THANK YOU!
Some of you may have noticed the weather forecast for this weekend of impending rain. We are letting you know that Louisville Pagan Pride Day ’18 is still on. The coordinators are looking at ways we modify the event to keep everyone safe and dry.
This is a “Rain or Shine” event and we have been very fortunate over the past several years to have more than positive weather. Including one year that rained in the morning and then turned beautiful in the afternoon. Lots of folks turned up after the rain stopped and it was a perfect day. Such are the perils of an outdoor event.
There will be many events on the waterfront this year, and not just ours. We are asking all Weather Witches out there to create a Weather Wedge around the city of Louisville to create a beautiful and perfect day on Saturday. We are also including this into our opening ritual.
If you are unfamiliar to what a Weather Wedge is, please lend your energies and intentions to those that do, or your energies and intentions to creating a picture-perfect day.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone at 11:00 AM on September 8 for Opening Ritual.
Thoughts rumble through this webmaster’s head as to how else we, the Louisville Pagan Pride Day web site can continue to contribute to the community. Not just once a year for Louisville Pagan Pride Day, but as a community resource.
Experience LPPD ‘s New Path Walk. Join us throughout the day, at your leisure, for a series of self-directed interactive art installations designed to extend the exploration of pathwork journey. Continue reading “New for LPPD ’18”
