DPPD Event Policies

DPPD Welcomes Media

Durham Pagan Pride Day is a media friendly event.

As a public event held in a public place, our attendees acknowledge that photos or video of themselves may be taken by media for the purposes of showcasing the event. That said, we request that media personnel respect the wishes of attendees who may wish not to be interviewed.

Media and attendees must obtain permission of the ritual leader(s) before taking pictures or video of ritual observances. Please coordinate with the ritual leader(s) before the observance begins.

We welcome media personnel who wish to document our event and ask that you say hello at our Information Table. We will be happy to facilitate any interviews you wish to do and to point out photo opportunities.

Wishing to report on or to promote Durham Pagan Pride? Please ask about our Media Packets at the Information Table, or download our DPPD 2018 Media Packet.

No Alcohol
As we do not possess an alcohol permit, we ask that people refrain from its use in any way (ingestion, ritual offering, etc.).

No Drugs
We ask that the laws of this land be respected while on these premises. Anyone found to be in possession of, or under the influence of, illegal substances will be asked to leave the premises.

Bladed Ritual Tools
Bladed ritual tools such as athames and swords are not welcome at our event. While we respect everyone’s right to practice their religious beliefs, we ask that you store your Sacred Tools safely and securely outside of the park.

Mind the Event Assistance Team (E.A.T.)
The members of the Event Assistance Team are there to ensure the safety and well-being of all those in attendance. They are identified by the wearing of a blue arm band. We ask everyone to comply with their instructions while on the premises. Failure to do so may lead to eviction.

Responsibilities & Liabilities
Durham Pagan Pride, its organizers, vendors and/or volunteers are not responsible for any stolen or damaged property.
