CAYA 2017 Rituals & Events

Come As You Are and be welcome at Pagan rituals honoring the seasons, full moon circles, polytheist temple ceremonies, and community events.

We host our rituals and events at several main locations around the Bay Area, CA and Portland, OR.  Specific event locations are linked in each entry below.

CAYA asks for a $10-$20 donation for each of our rituals and events, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.

All CAYA-sponsored events are open to all unless they are intended for a specific audience, clearly indicated in our listings. We strive to provide ceremonies and rituals in locations that are as accessible as possible by car, bicycle, and public transportation. Google works well for detailed directions from your location if you need assistance. Please arrive a few minutes early to get settled in before rituals and events begin.
