The Parking area is currently limited as to the number of cars that can be comfortably parked. Because of this restriction we will have to limit the number of camping participants with cars to 150. The only exception is for those who stay at a local motel and can arrange to carpool or van pool to the Gathering. We will try to have a van or cars available to ferry participants from local motels to the Gathering.
Merry Meet! We invite you to attend the 44th annual Gathering of the Tribes. The Gathering provides us an opportunity to express our religious freedom of choice. We celebrate and honor the Old Ways of Spirit and Nature.
The Gathering of the Tribes is a Spiritual Retreat presented May 12th thru May 15th on county land near Waterloo Iowa. This is a community affair we hope will reach out to every Pagan, Heathen and Hopeful Spirit in the area!! All Respectful Seekers Welcome!!
The Gathering of the Tribes provides a common ground to appreciate the similarities between other paths and traditions. The Gathering provides us an opportunity to express our religious freedom of choice. We share the passion of our beliefs and what is sacred in our life, with others. Our Bardic and nightly Drum Circles provides a way to celebrate our coming together. We sing, dance, drum, and feel the vibrations rising from the Earth with each beat of our hearts. We celebrate and honor the Old Ways of Spirit and Nature.
With the times being as hard
as they are, folk are looking less and less at the brighter things in life,
and concentrating on what isnt in the wallet. We need this event, we need
it to reconnect with ourselves and
This is a grass roots effort, my friends. There are only a handful of us working to bring this about. We are hopeful to find our lost friends and brethren. If you are already a child of the Gods - you should not miss this Gathering. If you are looking for your religious path, - you should come this Gathering. If you have been away from the peace of the arms of the Goddess - you should come to this Gathering.
Come, help us achieve our goal, a Community Gathering in the Mid West to welcome all Respectful Seekers!
