We are The Pagan Fringe. We are the pagan folk who live, work and play on the fringe of Sydney. Based in the far West of Sydney bordering the Blue Mountains, we find ourselves meeting others in the Nepean, Blacktown and Hawkesbury regions and beyond, stretching North, West and South. We’re also fringe-dwellers when it comes to our religious and magical practice. This is an effort to create, and in some cases revive, old connections of witchy/pagan/magical folk in the region of Western Sydney NSW.

We have a core group supporting us in sending out the call to rebuild this ‘network’. Many of us are experienced practitioners who in years passed, have spent time teaching, presenting, running groups, events, covens and circles over the last 25yrs. Combined, we have well over 75yrs+ experience practicing magic and witchcraft.

Over the last 9yrs (2015-to date), we have built a vibrant little group of regular people who attend our events. We’ve connected with local covens, new practitioners, old friends and people new to the pagan scene. And we’d like to meet more.

So, why the goat skull? We used to bring a goat skull to our events so we were easy to find in a public space. There was no mistaking him! Otherwise, we like the imagery of the goat (related to the goat-foot God Pan) which is also associated with hardy survival in tough terrain. Pagans don’t tend to stay pagan for very long without some thick skin in that regard. These days we bring a statue of a meerkat so keep an eye out for the meerkat if you come to our events now.

Who can attend? Generally everyone. We also run family-friendly events too. Most of our events are free to attend, or may have the option for you to purchase your own drinks or meals.

Are you affiliated with any other organised groups? Do I have to ‘join’ you? 
No we’re not a part of other groups and no, there’s no requirement to ‘join’ anything other than us for a drink/chat. We’re primarily a social group, however, we may facilitate introductions to covens, teachers, share information about upcoming workshops or down the track, host the delivery of learning or training opportunities.

Who will I meet? Witches. Occultists. Druids. Pagans. Many of us are experienced practitioners who have spent time teaching, presenting and running groups, events, circles and covens over the last 25yrs+
