Paganicon 2012 was an awesome success! We came, we talked, we listened, we learned things, we danced all night, and we made lots of connections for next year. Last year’s attendees came largely from the upper Midwest, but we had attendees from both coasts and from Canada!
A big thank you to everyone who made the weekend a delight! The board of Twin Cities Pagan Pride would like to thank everyone who made Paganicon a huge success this weekend:
- Our guests of honor Christopher Penczak and SJ Tucker
- All the musicians, presenters, ritualists and artists who enriched our programming with so many offerings
- The vendors who dazzled us with magical and whimsical wares all weekend
- The volunteers who offered their time and energy to be of service to the community, especially Lynn who ran the hospitality suite.
- The generous individuals who donated supplies and expenses toward our hospitality suite.
- ALL the creative souls who made our ball more magical by dressing in costume, even if they didn’t win an award.
- And everyone who participated, especially those who smiled at someone, hugged someone, or spread good energy in some way.
We’re still riding high on the wave of magic, love, and success from this weekend, but we’re already thinking of next year. If you didn’t have time to fill out your feedback form at the con, the form is now up on our website. Please fill it out if you have the chance.
Our schedule can still be seen online, so you can find out what you missed.
We rocked the house Saturday night at our All Snakes Ball to a combination of DJ Silverwolf, Murphey’s Midnight Rounders and S.J. Tucker.
