To Park "B" This Year

Hail and Merry Meet!

We have received our park permit this year, but we will be in Clark Park "B" instead of Clark Park "A." We were in Park "B" in 2013 at the first Philadelphia Pagan Pride. T

This section of the park is directly across Chester Avenue from where we have held the last few events.

Vending applications are open now.

Thanks for your patience!

PPPD 2018

We are beginning the ramp-up to Philadelphia Pagan Pride Day 2018, which will be September 1, 2018, again at Clark Park.

We'll open up the vending application as soon as we have the permit in hand.

Thank you!

Yuletide Sock Drive

Socks are one of the most requested items at homeless shelters, but they are also one of the least-donated items.

From December 17, 2016 (Parade of Spirits - Krampuslauf Philadelphia) through January 1, 2016, Distelfink Sippschaft will be collecting new, unworn socks for folks in need. We need all sizes, from baby to adult male. Practical socks, fun socks, fuzzy socks, holiday socks, argyle socks are all needed!

Stock up stacks of socks and stockings and help to bring warmth to the feet of those in need this Yuletide!

Contact Robert L. Schreiwer ( for collection sites. The first location will be at Parade of Spirits/Krampuslauf in Liberty Lands Park.

Donations will be directed to homeless shelters in the Delaware Valley.
