Our biggest event of the year, Vancouver Pagan Pride Day (VanPPD), occurs during late summer/autumn, which symbolizes the responsibilities Pagans hold to their town/city/province in honor of the various Thanksgiving holidays.
The first Pagan Pride Day was September 19, 1998; Vancouver Pagan Pride had its first event the following year.
Vancouver Pagan Pride is part of the global Pagan Pride Project, an international movement to promote community and understanding of the Pagan path. Vancouver Pagan Pride events are designed to increase community goodwill, public education and awareness towards Paganism. Events are open to Pagans, non-Pagans, passersby, and onlookers. Charitable donations are collected at our events for Greater Vancouver food banks and shelters.
