Pagan Freedom Day Movement

The Pagan Freedom Day initiative was birthed on 11.11.2003 to facilitate an annual national and regional celebration of 10 years of Pagan Religious Freedom in South Africa on Freedom Day 27 April 2004.

In January 2004, this initiative was formerly chartered as the Pagan Freedom Day Movement (PFDM).

Since its inception, Pagans across the country have willingly embraced the ideal of Pagan Freedom Day, namely to encourage Cooperative Community building amongst Pagans and between Pagans and non-Pagans. It is hoped that by fostering a positive and holistic South African Pagan identity, we can promote understanding and tolerance amongst Pagans and between Pagans and non-Pagan South Africans.

Regional Communities have been formed to facilitate these ideals and to foster both Pagan identity and consolidate cooperative community building. Diverse Pagan individuals and groups have rallied together under the banner of Freedom and Unity in Diversity.

All Pagan Freedom Day events fall under the coordination of the National Coordinator of the South African Pagan Council.

Each regional event (in Tshwane, Johannesburg, Mpumalanga, Kwazulu-Natal, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town) has a Regional Coordinator directly appointed by the National Coordinator and Convenor of the South African Pagan Council.

Regional Coordinators are responsible for organising Pagan Freedom Day events in their selected regions.

Please consider giving your support and assistance to Regional Coordinators, and attend Pagan Freedom Day events in your region.

For more information and updates on regional Pagan Freedom Day events for 27 April every year, please contact The South African Pagan Council at

Pagan Freedom Day - 27 April 2020

Good Folk of the Community,

It is with a very heavy heart that I come to you today.

The decision was taken, and with consultation with all relevant parties and the SAPC Executive en mostly our Pagan Freedom Day Organisers, to cancel the Pagan Freedom Day Celebrations for 2020, due to the international and local cases of the COVID-19 Virus.

The World Health Organization has officially declared this a World Pandemic. They asked for a proactive approach, and that is what we are doing.

We feel that in the interest of our Community and the general population at large, we have a duty to safeguard individuals and communities. This is not dictated by panic or fear, but understanding the necessity of containing the spreading of the disease.

We are currently keeping a close eye on the situation, and will keep the Community updated on relevant information.

We ask that everyone please keep their well being first. If you do suspect that you have contracted or show symptoms of any sort, please contact the toll free hotline: 0800 029 999.
