What? Come join us for kid-focused activities. Children must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult throughout the programming item.

Where? Kids programming will be in room 303 (across from entrances C and D to the 3rd floor conference center.) There is a quiet play space next door in room 304E.

Want to help? We’re still hoping for more volunteers for our Carnival of Games event from 3-5pm on Saturday. The more volunteers we have, the more games we can offer. Interested? Email programming@tcpaganpride.org .

Note: We are working on a few more programming options (and will also be including information here about kid-friendly entertainment acts.) Keep checking back for updates!


11am to noon: MN Besom Brigade Open Practice
Open to all ages; kids are especially welcome!

Ever wanted to “twirl” a broom with a bunch of Witches? Well, this is your chance! If you have a broom, bring it…if you don’t…come on down anyway! We’ll laugh and we’ll sing as we learn the routines. Then at 12noon we’ll perform and show off our Witchy pride!

3-5pm: Carnival of Games
Brought your kids and don’t know what there is for them to do? Bring them to the Children’s Carnival. This event will give your children a couple hours of fun as they play some carnival games and interact with
other pagan / pagan-friendly kids. The activity is open to “kids” of any age so drop on in! Sponsored by The Earth House Project, and Bonita and Mary.


11am to 12pm: Pagan Parenting with Wendy
Raising a child in the Pagan tradition comes with its own unique challenges. There’s no Vacation Bible School, no Children’s Church, no Veggie Tales. Come and discuss with other Pagan parents how you communicate your beliefs to your children.

1pm to 2:30pm : Quick and Fun Masks!
(Starts after the Three Poppet Opera show ends)
[led by “Firetongue”; also known as Bonita Blumenauer]

Hey…do you want to be a dragon, a bat, or … something else?? Come join us as we work on fun & easy mask projects to decorate ourselves with! I’ll supply the materials … you supply the imagination and we’ll have FUN! And if you’d like to make a “crown”…no problem…I’ll even have the supplies on hand to turn you into a Queen or King!

Open to kids of all ages; please bring a parent or guardian—especially for the youngest who may need help with glue and markers.

2:45 to 3:45pm : Dream Dragon [Led by “Firetongue”; also known as Bonita Blumenauer]
Come one, come all as we bless our Dreams and Dance with the Dragon!

We’ll decorate ourselves & the Dragon with the Dreams that we ALL share. Then we‘ll dance with the Dream Dragon and share the Magic of all of our Dreams!

Open to all ages; kids please bring a parent or guardian.
