Pagan Pride

Pagan Pride Project celebrates diversity within spirituality and bringing awareness about the peaceful paths of Paganism to all who want to participate. The Pagan Pride Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to foster pride in Pagan identity through education, activism, charity, and community.

Admission to all Pagan Pride events is the donation of a non-perishable food item. SMPPD has adopted Project FEED as our recipient for food donations and the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook for pet foods. At last year's SMPPD event, we collected just over 200 lbs. of food for Project FEED and almost 45 lbs. of food for the Pet Food Pantry. We hope to surpass those totals this year. For more information about either event, please contact us at

Southern Maine Pagan Pride Day is just one part of a national event that features hundreds of pride days all over the world, joining thousands of Pagans together to celebrate diversity within spirituality and bringing awareness about the peaceful paths of Paganism to all who want to participate. We celebrate this Day at Allen Avenue each August.

Each Pagan Pride event conducts a food drive and chooses a local charity to receive the collected donations. SMPPD has chosen Project FEED in Portland for donations of non-perishable food items for humans and the Pet Food Pantry at Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland for donations of pet foods.

PR Craft Confections

PR Craft Confections, LLC was established in the snowy winter of 2014 in historic Portland, Maine. Founder/Chocolatier Peter Robbins is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America and a veteran chef of critically acclaimed restaurants in New York, Brooklyn, Bar Harbor, Florida and now Portland, Maine.

We carefully craft every aspect of our chocolates. We use chocolate made from 100% single origin, fairly traded Venezuelan cacao beans and our flavorings and infusions are sourced organically and locally whenever possible. The resulting chocolate is of superior flavor, aroma and balance. Each business card and label is hand-stamped, our flavor keys hand drawn, and the boxes assembled by the chocolatier himself.

Women in Harmony

Recognizing the power of music to bring people together, we will work to build bridges among women through singing, striving for unity among all women, regardless of sexual orientation, race, class, economic background, or ethnicity.

Through music, we honor and celebrate those who have worked throughout history for the rights women enjoy today. We support those who continue to strive for political, social and economic equality on behalf of all women. We advocate peace, freedom and justice for all.

We provide learning opportunities for women of widely varying levels of musical experience, encouraging all members to expand their skills and grow musically within a supportive environment.

We will work to enhance the community’s awareness, appreciation and understanding of choral music, in particular bringing the work of women composers and musicians to the public.
