Ottawa’s Pagan Community has been around since at least the early 80’s (I arrived in 1985 and it was well established by then).
Got a question? With more than 600 members, our Ottawa area Yahoo! Groups: the Ottawa & Gatineau Pagan Peer Group, Ottawa Pagans Online, Pagan Pride Ottawa, or Red Maple Grove are a great resource! The links provided will take you to each group’s sign-on page. Go ahead, you’ll find our community quite welcoming.
Do you want to join in?
Whether newcomer or old hand, Paganism is more fun shared with others. When you’re ready to move beyond a solitary pursuit; ready to make the jump to meeting with like minded others, whether just socially or to share ritual space, there are many ways to join in. The three oldest regularly occurring activities are
- the now weekly brunches (both links take you to Facebook pages) —
Ottawa Pagan Brunch East (1st and 3rd Sunday of each month in private homes) &
Ottawa Pagan Brunch West (2nd, 4th and 5th Sunday at Buster’s Bar and Grill);
- the monthly Ottawa Pagan Meet & Greet (2nd Wednesday 7pm at Malone’s in the Dow’s Lake Pavilion);
- and our annual Kaleidoscope Gathering (1st weekend of August at Raven’s Knoll campground) — all of which date from the late 80’s.
That’s all you absolutely need to know if you’d like to find Ottawa’s Pagan community.
