25th Annual

PantheaCon

February 15 – 18, 2019

 at San Jose Doubletree Hotel, 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose CA

 UPDATE (12/11/18) Main Hotel (Doubletree) Lottery        Apologies on the usual confusion around the first room release – which was Friday 12/7 at NOON Pacific Time.  Sorry about an old code that was left up on an old section of this website, but it turns out that it worked randomly for some people when the other “correct”one did not. Remember that as impossible as it may seem, ALL the released rooms really DO get booked up in 5 minutes or less.  Also we encourage you to book at nearby hotels, if necessary (some of which include breakfast in their rates). The website has a list of other hotels in the area.

We expect have the date of another  room release later in December and hope to give you more lead time.  Hotel parking costs $13/day.

Further Update on Program issues, coming soon, by Dec 18 or sooner. I prefer to take time to make a clear statement, rather than a fast incomplete one. Please be patient.  Here is a fine essay about the problems of the dominant culture style  of thinking. It can be applied  to both sexism as well as racism.  Link [here] to White Supremacy Culture.

Update November 27, 2018   Some issues have come up and Glenn addresses them here.

Update December 11, 2018 Glenn has added an article under Current Issues:White Supremacy Culture

Theme for 2019: Unity, Respect  for our Diversity, and  Connecting Webs to Heal the Earth      What are we doing to heal our mother,  our selves? What are we Willing to do for the Earth and for our Community?

This year we especially want to emphasize that PantheaCon is a Safe Space for all. We tolerate no harassment of anyone by others. This is called Pax Templi where differences of opinion are set aside for the duration of the Sacred Space. (We have need to focus more on how we can bridge our different opinions and will add some new programming around that along with our usual music, workshops and hospitality room parties and events.

Join our many and varied spiritual traditions – Pagan, Polytheist, Wiccan, Norse, Druid, Egyptian, African Diaspora, Ceremonial Magick, Reconstructionist, Indigenous, shamanic, spiritual and magical groups in education and celebration. Topics include tarot, divination, goddesses and many others. Enjoy musical performances, rituals, workshops, scholarly papers, slide shows and more.

We fill the whole hotel with 14 function rooms for events including 4 ballrooms with over 60 vendors of Pagan, magical and earth oriented products, and special hospitality rooms that host more events.
