Midwest Pagan Council

42nd Annual Pan Pagan Festival - August 1-5, 2018

 

Want to give a Workshop or present a Ritual at PPF?

Festivals thrive because everyone gets together to share their knowledge and learn from each other.

If you would like to share your knowledge in a Workshop or Ritual, please fill out the Workshop Form. While it is called a Workshop form, all the same information for Rituals is needed as well. Opening Ritual, Main Ritual, and Closing Ritual are staples at PPF, but that does not mean we wouldn't love to see you host a Ritual as well. Area A is the ritual space, available for your ritual as well.

If you would like to fill out a form online, please clink Here!

And questions, please email us at midwestpagancouncil@yahoo.com
