Pagan Spirit Gathering (PSG), a weeklong national celebration of Summer Solstice & Community, has a new site.
PSG 2011 will be held June 19-26 at Stonehouse Park, a beautiful,
rural historical re-enactment campground near Earlville in Northern
Illinois, about 80 miles west of downtown Chicago.
"We are looking forward to having the Pagan Spirit Gathering within a
short drive from the greater Chicago area again," says PSG's founder
Selena Fox." We haven't been this close to Chicago since PSG 1983 when
our site was on private land along the Rock River. This is the first
time that PSG will be in Illinois, and we have been getting very
positive responses to the news from Illinois Pagans as well as Pagans
from around the country."
The new site for the PSG Community is a 50 acre wooded park with
plenty of level, shaded camping areas, plus a creek for wading, and a
sandy beach and pond for swimming. In addition, the Stonehouse Park
site has a large barn for indoor concerts and talks, plus a campstore,
showerhouse, and other buildings. Cell phone service works at this
site and there also is wi-fi. More details:
