2016 Pagan/Wiccan Calendar

Pagans love to celebrate, and as the Wheel of the Year turns, a number of milestones are reached. Each is a time for gathering together with friends and family, working on our spiritual development, and feasting and merrymaking! The following is a list of dates for 2016, as well as resources for celebration in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

Be sure to read about Celebrating the Sabbats Seasonally, to get a good idea as to how you can celebrate based upon agricultural markers rather than just dates on a calendar. If you're one of our readers below the Equator, you'll also want to check out Moon Phase Names in the Southern Hemisphere.

Please note that the full moon dates and times are based upon the Farmer's Almanac schedules, which is listed in Eastern Standard Time. You may need to adjust the time for these depending on where you live.

Also, before you go to an event, make sure you read about proper Pagan and Wiccan Festival Etiquette. It'll make your experience even more enjoyable.
