Pagan Spirit Gathering

Welcome Home!

Each year, the PSG community comes together, creates, and lives in a 21st century Pagan village which is our home for the duration of the weeklong celebration of Summer Solstice. The sacred fire that we light during our Opening Ritual and keep burning throughout symbolizes the solstice sun and spirit of the PSG community.

Connect with Community!  Don't wait until the gate opens - connect with the PSG community online via Twitter and on our Facebook Group and on Instagram
