Imbolc Events Around the Bay

See also

Depending on your tradition of Paganism, Imbolc might be happening right as I type this out or it might be tomorrow or even the next day, but if you want to honor this time of the year with community it isn't too late to find a public gathering.

This is the time of the year when we in Northern California start to see the signs of Spring. Of course, this year with the severe drought the normal signs seem to be experiencing their own confusion. But the Wheel of the Year keeps turning, drought or not!

No matter how you celebrate Imbolc, Candlemas, or Brigid perhaps one of these Pagan gatherings can help you to find your own way through the last bit of darkness.
