'Pagan Fest' returns to Oaks Amusement Park
After a two-year pandemic hiatus, the annual "Pagan Fair" returned to nonprofit Oaks Amusement Park this spring, in the Dance Pavilion.
"It's put on by 'SisterSpirit', founded in Portland in 1985, as a fundraiser for our organization," explained one of volunteer coordinators, Jamie Okulam. "This is an eclectic group of women, from different walks of life and different religions, who all come together to honor the 'female divine' in all traditions."
A surprising number of people — all of them checked for COVID-19 shots and wearing face masks — browsed among the 23 vendors.
"The vendors we have here are as eclectic as are the people who visit us here," Okulam observed. "Most of these vendors are selling items that they have made, created, or 'found', as well as blenders of special herbal compounds.
