From the Inside Flap
Chasing The Rainbow is destined to become the quintessential guide for facilitating Pagan festivals. Author Tish Owen draws from over a decade of experience running one of the Mid-south's largest alternative-spirituality gathering. In her down to earth and often humorous style, she offers sound advise and common sense planning techniques that will help to make any festival coordinator's job a pleasure rather than a painbe it a small celebration or a large event on a regional scale.

So much in this book applies to ANY kind of festival you want to put on.
Tish paints vivid pictures and tells stories that had me alternating between cringing in familiarity to rolling on the floor laughing.
Thank you Tish! You are my hero!
Tish Owen's new book, Chasing the Rainbow: Facilitating A Pagan Festival is less a how to book than a conversation on paper in which the author relates through practical, been-there advice what to do and not do when organizing an event. Her experiences as the founder and organizer of one of the midsouth's most popular festivals shines through in this chatty, friendly tome. From what kind of festival you want to have to how many are coming for dinner, this book offers the best sort of advice to put a festival organizer, or anyone who might want to work at a festival, on the right path to creating a fantastic event.
This book should be useful not just for major festival staff, but for anyone putting on a Pagan event of any size. Tish relates not just the lessons she's learned as organizer of Pagan Unity Festival, but as a Coven leader and community organizer for everything from Pagan Pride Days to one day Sabbat celebrations. There are an number of things that can go right and go wrong with an event of any size; this book is great guide to how to make things go as right as possible.
My only complaint with this book is it could have gone into more detail on almost every subject, but at the same time, covering every possible aspect of festival management would require a book probably three or four times the size of this volume. We can only hope that this fine book is the first of many on the subject from this author.
