Pagan Spirit Gathering

For immediate release: Please share this news via blogs, websites, social networking, e-zines, other ways.

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:

Registration is now open:

Proposals for workshops, rituals, concerts, and other presentations

are now being accepted from those who register. Vendor applications

are also being accepted from registrants.

Among the featured presenters at PSG 2011 will be authors Raven

Grimassi and Stephanie Taylor, Patrick McCollum, Nora Cedarwind Young,

Ruth Barrett, Falcon River, and Selena Fox. Shibaten from Japan, who

debuted his shamanic percussion and world music at PSG last year, will

be returning. More authors, musicians, and other presenters will be

announced in coming weeks. Bios and photos of some presenters are


Pagan Spirit Gathering, begun in 1980, is one of America's oldest and

largest festivals, and is sponsored by Circle Sanctuary. It brings

together Pagans of many paths from across the USA and other countries.
