June 10-11, 2017
Since the festival is two days long, may I camp overnight?
Unfortunately, our festival grounds are not large enough to accommodate campers. The booth spaces of our vendors take up most of our outside areas, so we cannot allow guests to remain overnight. Vendors and their helpers are wristbanded and only those people may remain on festival grounds after PanGaia After Dark ends. Please investigate hotel options in the Rancho Cordova and Citrus Heights areas near Fair Oaks.
May I bring my pet?
The VFW (our hosts) do not allow pets on the property unless they are service animals.
Why can I not drive on the grass if I am a vendor?
We work hard to protect our long-standing relationship with the VFW and they are absolute on this rule. They say it is to protect their automatic sprinkler system which has been damaged in the past by vehicles driving over the grassy areas. They say no so we say no.
May I bring my blade?
PanGaia allows swords, daggers, and ritual blades provided they are peace- tied and sheathed. Peace-tying a weapon keeps it from being used. As an example, sheath a sword and peace-tie the hilt of the sword to the sheath so that it cannot be drawn. Arrows in a quiver must be peace-tied together and the bow unstrung. It is a simple process that helps insure the safety of the guests.
How about my gun?
No firearms and weapons are allowed on festival grounds.
Is this event child friendly?
Very! Until 9pm. After 9pm, PanGaia After Dark takes over and we do not recommend that children remain on the festival grounds. People under the age of 18 may not enter the hall during the Midtown Moxies’ burlesque performance, even with parent permission. Just…no. During the day and at all times, adults must supervise children under 12. Failure to monitor children may result in expulsion from the festival grounds. Do not leave children unattended in any other part of the festival area. Please do not allow children to play with PanGaia Festival equipment, like our sound equipment or our bubble machine.
I am a vendor and would like to raffle off my products…
PanGaia allows no unauthorized soliciting and no raffles/opportunity drawings other than those conducted by North Western Circles Association.
If PanGaia is a fund-raising event and is free to park and enter, how do you make any money?
Our funds are raised through donations, vendor fees, and other fund-raising activities that take place during the festival.
There is a lot of Pagan involvement in this, is it Wiccan or Anti-Christian?
The entire point of PanGaia is that are not defined by any religious practice. We are not anti- anything except persecution, hatred, discrimination, or malignment. We believe everyone has their own path to the Sacred and Divine and PanGaia’s mission is to explore that throughout the many cultures in the world.
I use cannabis for pain control. May I use it on festival grounds?
As per VFW rules, those use cannabis for medical or recreational reasons must do so off festival grounds.
Can I bring in a cooler of beer or bottle of wine to enjoy during After Dark?
Guests may not bring alcohol onto festival grounds. Alcoholic drinks are available from the VFW bar inside the facility. We expect guests to “drink responsibly,” to know their limit, to conduct themselves respectfully, and to arrange for alternative transportation after drinking. Again, onsite sleeping facilities are not available for guests.
Is PanGaia After Dark “Clothing Optional?”
Neither PanGaia Festival NOR PanGaia After Dark is a “clothing optional” event. All guests must follow the dress code of “beach legal” and refrain from nudity.
Who is your special cause this year?
A portion of our proceeds not required for festival costs goes to Wildlife Care Association on McClellan Business Park.
