In 1976, three Pagan covens in the greater Chicago area gathered to discuss forming a council of Pagan groups. Although their traditions varied slightly, these covens had been celebrating Festivals together for several years. Now, they felt, it was time to see if a door could be opened to bring other groups in the Chicago area into this Circle of Sharing.
They contacted several other groups and a meeting was held to exchange ideas. Slowly from that meeting, the Midwest Pagan Council was created.
What is the Council about?
The primary purpose of the Council is to share traditions, information, and exchange ideas to foster understanding and unity within the Pagan community. We do this through festivals, workshops, get-togethers, and more.
