Pagan Summer Gatherings and Festivals

This last weekend I went to the Pagan Alliance Festival in Berkeley,CA. Northern California Local Council of CoG had a booth where we shared information and sold a few trinkets.  At noon there was a parade around downtown Berkeley.  We had probably over 50 pagan vendors of various types. The main ritual happened at about noon with many participants. There was an ongoing stage with musical and dance groups of high quality, and probably around 500 folks attended Saturday's varied activities. I will have many photos of this event on my flickr site shortly.  Such events are important meeting places for the Pagan community, so I thought that I would provide at least a partial list of  upcoming summer Pagan gatherings and festivals happening around the country for folks to check out.
