The CDC updated their recommendations for large group gatherings. Please Read.

Originally, they recommended that gatherings of 100 or more scheduled in the next 2 weeks be postponed or cancelled. They have now upgraded that recommendation to gatherings of 50 people or more for the next 8 weeks.

Unfortunately that moves the window out to cover the dates for FPG Beltaine 2020.For the safety of our Guests, Vendors and Staff we are cancelling FPG Beltaine 2020. Anyone who pre-registered will have their registration rolled over to FPG Samhain 2020. If you are on need of a refund, please email Bobbi Jo at register@flapagan.org. We will post details of FPG Samhain 2020 in the coming weeks as we get more updates from the CDC.

Please stay healthy and safe!

How FPG Came to Be

For many years, the Church of Iron Oak, ATC has sponsored the Florida Pagan Gathering. When it started, it was an important part of the legal battle we were embroiled in but it soon succeeded in getting the message out beyond our wildest imagination!

First it was called the Freedom Fest and was held at a small resort on the East Coast of Florida. Then, the battle was over, the dust settled and the lawyers put away their briefs but the festivals continued. We changed the name to the Florida Pagan Gathering when we moved it to a place that could accommodate more people. Over the next two years, the festival grew to more than 300 people! It became a wonderful chance to bring together the Pagan community as well as attract popular authors to Florida, many for the first time. By that time, most of the FPG staff were from different groups or were solitaries so we were already a Florida-wide staff.

Well, we of the Church of Iron Oak, want the festival to continue under a statewide community event as our thanks to the wonderful Pagan community inside and outside of Florida, people who helped us during our difficulties. We decided to continue the festival under the watchful and caring hands of the Florida Pagan community, since it pretty much was already. On October 4, 2000, the Temple of Earth Gathering, Inc (TEG). was formed as an independent Pagan council. It is composed of Pagans from all over Florida expressly to manage FPG.

Since this is a community event, we are always looking for good people who are willing to help this festival become a success. Please consider helping us continue to make this festival successful by joining TEG! We always have openings for people who can work along with us and keep the spirit growing. Please contact the festival coordinator or the TEG president and be a member the Temple of Earth Gathering.

Be sure to bookmark our new web site, the home page of the Temple of Earth Gathering, and check it for exciting festival news!

Blessed Be,
