Pagans and Wiccans love to celebrate, and as the Wheel of the Year turns, a number of milestones are reached. Each is a time for gathering together with friends and family, working on our spiritual development, and feasting and merrymaking! The following is a list of dates for 2009, as well as resources for celebration in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

Also, before you go to an event, make sure you read about proper Pagan and Wiccan Festival Etiquette. It'll make your experience even more enjoyable.
