The annual festival in Columbia Missouri coincides with hundreds of Pagan Pride festivals around the globe that take place to celebrate the diverse nature of our faiths and to embrace acceptance and education for all. This year, in Columbia, Missouri, Mid-Missouri Pagan Pride is sponsoring the festival for education and acceptance known as Pagan Pride Day on September 07, 2014. Our focus this year will be “Building Community Heart to Hand.” Stand with us and take our hand so that together we can build a supportive community.
