Final PantheaCon 2020
February 14 – 17, 2020
at San Jose Doubletree Hotel, 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose CA
UPDATE: 10.9.19 The Final PantheaCon, 2020
This year in 2020 will be the 26th and Final PantheaCon. I once had a vision of the many tribes of Earth religions and neo-pagans coming together to network and share our varied views of spirituality. That vision came true for many years, but as time passed it grew bigger and the viewpoints diverged. I still hope PantheaCon has been of benefit to many individuals who met like-minded friends at it.
I will be retiring at the end of PantheaCon 2020. In doing so, I hope to create a space for new leaders and new faces to bring fresh visions. [read more]

All those who attend, staff, vend at, and present at PantheaCon acknowledge their acceptance of our policy on Diversity and Consent found HERE
We thank and acknowledge Hexenfest for our use of this policy statement.
UPDATE (10.2.19) Here is an update on the Expanded Statement on Diversity and Transparency and FAQ about Diversity and Enforcement of Policies. Thanks for the help editing those pages go to the Programming and Advisory teams.
UPDATE (9.17.19) We want people to know how we are applying our Diversity policy in both our desire to be Diverse and how we are choosing the presenters who use our community platform. May the Gods protect our Craft and our Community.
An expanded programming team is reviewing new and past presenters for their self-described bios, online presence, and body of work. We are also looking at and for endorsements of presenters from well-regarded community members with strong stances on social justice, LGBTQ rights/issues, and cultural appropriateness. In addition, we have another team who are Programming Advisors for Diversity. We will be sending them a preview of the tentative list of events to be sure we have not missed anything. These teams are in place to avoid bigoted or cultural appropriation workshops. We welcome and will be accepting diversity events.
Doubletree Hotel Rooms: Room rates are $146 a night. Late in the fall one or two blocks of rooms will open for these rooms in high demand. They typically are all snapped up in 5 minutes.
Parking for the event is $13 a day. Parking can be scarce, especially at the height of the con. Please consider taking public transit.
Overflow hotels – See the internet and the Hotel and Lodging part of the website for these hotels. Our main overflow hotel is the Fairfield Inn San Jose Airport. (They have free parking and free breakfast with nearby inexpensive restaurants.) It is only a few blocks away from the Doubletree.
