Covenant of the River

The Northern Colorado Covenant of the River, of Fort Collins, CO, has been an active part of the greater Pagan community for over 9 years. We are a family friendly, eclectic group who gathers to explore, exchange knowledge, learn about and further understand our own Spiritual Paths, while finding acceptance within the comfort of an open circle atmosphere. The Northern Colorado Covenant of the River is a place where all with an open heart and mind are welcome. Come out and meet local Pagans, Asatru, Buddhists, Druids, Wiccans, Witches and other practitioners on a Pagan Path. Our activities and topics vary from week to week to support our diversity and also to celebrate the Wheel of the Year. Join us to share ideas and lore, make friends, craft tools and other items, write and perform ritual, participate in lively discussions and to explore the rich and varied practices of the Pagan traditions. This website is a living work of love and will be updated as often as possible, so please check in often to see what we have planned.

Yes, we are doing back to back weeks of Yard Sale. Last time we did this we found that it made everything a lot easier because we didn’t have to move as much out and then move it back in.

The more hands we have the easier this part goes. We will need to sort and price all the items we have for sale, as well as prep the space for displaying everything.

Not a potluck but snacks and beverages are always welcome. This is also a great time to drop off last minute donations at the hall.
