Welcome to Bedford Downtown in Bedford, OH

Cleveland Pagan Pride Days

Earth, Air, Water, Fire – these are the the elements basic to all life.  And, as human beings, many of us recognize a spirit that is the driving force behind it all.  Pagan is often a misunderstood term – it includes any person holding religious beliefs other than those of the main world religions.  They represent a form of worship that heralds back to an ancient time but yet celebrates the same “spirit” of mankind.  The mission of the Pagan Pride Project is to foster pride in Pagan identity through education, activism, charity and community.

On the last weekend in August, pagans come to Bedford Commons to demonstrate their beliefs and to encourage tolerance through education and information.  Open to the public, both Pagan and non-Pagan, suggested admission is a donation of two non-perishable food items for the Southeast Clergy Food Bank.

The Commons

Several events take place on our historical Square or “Commons”  which is located across the street from the historical 1832 Hezekiah Dunham House at 272 Broadway (State Route 14).  Also surrounding the Square are the 1874 Townhall, 1882 Wheeling and Lake Erie Train Depot and the 1892 Old Baptist Church.  Free parking is available and plentiful!

Swing by the Commons for our amazing events.
