June 9-10, 2018
A delightful event of vendors, performers, and presenters distilled down from the best of the best of magical festivals over the past fifteen years, PanGaia Festival invites you to be a part of its fun and light-hearted festivities. Key staff members from festivals of the past came together to form the North Western Circles Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to hosting high-quality magical events and raising funds for local charities.
PanGaia Festival is about the fostering of loving, inclusive, and joyful relationship in the magical community and working together to create a blessed and fun-filled event for those who wish to celebrate Litha, the Summer Solstice, with joyful, friendly people.
This event will include contests, opportunity drawings, a midway game area, awesome vendors, the PanGaia Cafe, live music, authors, fabulous performers… imagine a Pagan County Fair atmosphere. After the sun goes down, the energy shifts into more adult-oriented entertainment with PanGaia After Dark.
A generous percent of earnings from PanGaia Festival (after our bills are paid) goes to support SACRAMENTO WILDLIFE CENTER.
So what’s going on?
North Western Circles Association is dedicated to providing their vendors with outstanding support and we welcome applications from vendors of all kinds of wares. Vendors are encouraged to contribute an item to our opportunity drawing to help raise money for our causes listed above. Each of the NWCA board members and festival organizers have been vendors ourselves, so we are tuned into the special needs involved with selling items in a festival environment. We want to give our vendors a wonderful, profitable experience so they return next year!
PanGaia will host its annual kilt and corset contest with the winners crowned as Mr & Ms PanGaia 2018. Come to the Main Stage at 3:45 on Saturday already kilted and corseted up to enter. There is no charge to enter this contest
