Getting Started with Circle Events

Circle Sanctuary hosts a variety of events throughout the year where our warm, caring and colorful community comes together to worship, visit and commune with Nature.  If you've never come to a Circle event, it's easy to get started!

Full Moon Circles: These are held on weeknights within a day or two of the Full Moon, and are free to attend.  Full Moon Circles are held outdoors if weather permits.  For more information, a schedule of upcoming Full Moon events and our sign-up form, CLICK HERE.

Sanctuary Days: Our regular volunteer opportunities are held monthly on Saturdays, with the April and October events being full weekends.  These are also free to attend.  Food is provided for the April & October weekend events, but not for the single-day ones.  For more information and to RSVP, CLICK HERE.

Visiting Days: For those who want to explore Circle's nature preserve without the distractions of our other events, we offer visiting days on some Wednesdays and Saturdays.  For more information, a schedule of upcoming days, and to sign up, CLICK HERE.

One-day Festivals: We offer full-day festivals on Saturdays near Imbolc (2/1), Spring equinox (mid-March), Earth Day (mid-April), Summer solstice (early June), Fall equinox (mid-September), and Yule (mid-December).  These festivals feature workshops and a seasonally-themed ritual, as well as childrens' programming.  Food is included, and we ask that you pre-register and pay an entry fee.  

Three-day Festivals: We offer 3-day festivals from Fridays - Sundays near Beltane (5/1), Lughnassadh / Green Spirit (early August), and Samhain (10/31).  These are overnight camping events which feature workshops, rituals, special presenters, musical guests, childrens' programming and much more.  You can come for some or all of these festivals, and you may choose to stay onsite in a tent/RV, in a nearby hotel, or commute from your home.  Food is included, and we ask that you pre-register and pay an entry fee.

Sacred Fire Circles: These are spiritual intensives, held on Presidents' Day weekend (mid-February) in an offsite location with indoor facilities, and Labor Day weekend (late August) on Circle Sanctuary land..  Fire Circles run from Thursday - Monday, though many arrive on Friday, and are overnight camping events.  The Circles begin at midnight and go until dawn.  Food is included, and we ask that you pre-register and pay an entry fee.  For more information and a schedule, please CLICK HERE.

Pagan Spirit Gathering: Our annual 8-day-long celebration of the Summer Solstice is held at an offsite location in mid-June.  PSG features workshops, conferences, concerts, rituals, rites of passage and much more.  Food is not included, though there are food vendors at the site.  Pre-registration is required, and there is a fee to attend.  This is a camping-oriented event which can accommodate tent and RV camping.  For more information and to register, CLICK HERE.
