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 10 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.

Location: 
River Hall - 901 E. Swallow Rd. Fort Collins, CO

How to find us: Pass through the gate on western (garage) side of house then enter through the yellow door into River Hall.

The formal full moon dinner has become a tradition for us that many seem to enjoy. Council spends the day cooking a small feast and we all come together to enjoy it in the Sanctuary. Formal attire is whatever you want it to mean. Some folks come dressed for a ball, others use ritual formal. Dress the way you wish. We recommend no high heels as they would be problematic in the rock yard.

We are asking for a $25 per person suggested donation for this fundraiser.

Doors open at 5:30, appetizers at 6, and dinner will be served at 7. Please bring a beverage to share.
