Keynote Speakers

Tara-Love Maguire

Tara-Love Maguire has been a practicing witch for over 30 years, on a path which has been crookedly influenced by Isobel Gowdie, Marie Laveau, and William S. Burroughs. Growing up as a weird kid in and around the New Jersey Pine Barrens, she found witchcraft within the tales and shadows that dwell there. She co-hosts the podcast, Down at the Crossroads, with her sweetheart, Christopher Orapello, and together, they founded Blacktree Coven- a traditional witchcraft coven which exists in the heart of southern New Jersey. Her first book, co-written with Chris, is currently available from Red Wheel/Weiser Books wherever books are sold.

Christopher Orapello

Christopher Orapello is an artist, Freemason, witch, and animist with a background in western occultism and ceremonial magick, and has been on his journey for over 30 years. He co-hosts the podcast Down at the Crossroads with his partner, Tara-Love Maguire, is an author with Red Wheel / Weiser Books, a signature artist with Sacred Source (a leading producer and distributor of ancient deity images in North America) and the sculptor of the popular Witch Lord and Witch Queen statues available through Sacred Source. After a growing desire for a more locally-based form of witchcraft, he and Tara-Love founded Blacktree coven in 2014, where they set out to forge a modern approach to Traditional Witchcraft for a new era of praxis. His first book- Besom, Stang, and Sword- co-written with Tara-Love, is currently available from Red Wheel/Weiser Books wherever books are sold.

!!! Covid-19 Mask Compliance !!!

The City of Philadelphia mandates that outdoor events of 1,000+ people must be wearing a mask. We estimate that we have no more than 250 people in the event space at a given time. However, we are STRONGLY ENCOURAGING that everyone wear a mask (regardless of vaccination status) when a 6-foot social distance cannot be maintained (ie. attending a workshop, interacting with vendors, etc.).

Covid-19 Event Guidelines


Event staff, volunteers, vendors, performers, workshop presenters, and general attendees are encouraged not to attend if they are exhibiting symptoms of covid-19.

If you are a Vendor and you cannot make it to the event due to covid-19 symptoms, please e-mail and we will discuss the best way to refund your Vendor Fee or apply it to next year’s event.

Masks/Facial Coverings

Event staff, volunteers, vendors, performers, and/or workshop presenters are expected to comply with any city/county/state/federal orders regarding masks/facial coverings at the time of our event. 

Should masks/facial coverings be required at the time of our event, Philadelphia Pagan Pride reserves the right to remove any event staff, volunteers, vendors, performers, and/or workshop presenters from the event area that do not comply with the mask/facial covering order. 

General attendees not adhering to the mask/facial covering order will be encouraged by event staff to wear a mask. A supply of courtesy masks will be available at both “Welcome” areas the day of the event if a mask/facial covering order is still in place. 

We also reserve our event staff, volunteers, vendors, performers, and/or workshop presenters the right to refuse service to anyone not adhering to the current mask/facial covering order should there be one in place at the time of our event.


Our typical standard spacing for vendors is measured in 10’ x 10’ spaces, allowing approximately 60 total vendors. We have increased this size to 15’ x 10’ spaces, allowing approximately 45 total vendors. This will allow more “padding” on each side of our vendors, allowing more room for people to move between.

Reduce Crowds

Event volunteers will be walking around the event space throughout the day looking for large crowds of people and encouraging them to disperse and spread out. 

Vendors are encouraged to assist with the dispersal of large crowds around their vending space.


Vendors are given a 15’ x 10’ foot space. 

Each individual vendor will be responsible for taking their own orders, payments, as well as structuring their space to accommodate social distancing.

Vendors are strongly encouraged to make use of physical barriers in their spaces, particularly at spaces where payments are made.


Hand sanitizing stations will be provided and maintained by our staff at both “Welcome” areas, portable toilets, performance area, and workshop areas. 

Vendors are encouraged to offer a hand sanitizing solution to general attendees on their tables.


Event staff will regularly sanitize the surfaces of both “Welcome” areas, portable toilets, performance areas, and workshop areas throughout the duration of the event. 

Vendors are encouraged to regularly sanitize their wares/tables surfaces throughout the duration of the event.


Signage explaining social distancing guidelines, mask/facial covering orders, and hand sanitizing suggestions will be posted at both “Welcome” areas, portable toilets, performance area, and workshop areas.
