The Feast of Fear honors Pan as the God who both rules and relieves Panic. During the festival, worshipers discuss with each other their own fears, and images, tokens or masks are made to represent these fears. Sometimes a dream incubation ritual is done at home in preparation for the festival.

After the theoxenia is over, each participant goes home and uses the mask in a personal ritual to Pan, where they offer their representation to Him asking that He help them face their fear (usually in a dream or guided meditation). The festival closes with a drum circle in honor of Pan giving thanks for His assistance.
