Fall Gathering

September 2 @ 4:00 pm - September 6 @ 2:00 pm

FALL GATHERING IS CANCELED due to concerns about COVID-19


Come join us! This year’s Fall Gathering comes at the end of summer over Labor Day weekend. In preparation for the cooler months to come, we’ll be soaking up the last warmth of summer in the beautiful, natural surroundings of Saratoga Springs.

We anticipate a lovely, relaxed time to hang out and just be with each other, and we’re trying not to over plan. We’ve even built nap time into the schedule! There will still be plenty to do though. We’ll spend our time:

Enjoying delicious meals together

Sharing ourselves in heart circle

Ambling along the new trail through the woods

Reveling in the warmth of the day

Cooling off in the pool

Soaking up warmth in the hot tub

Painting our bodies (or someone else’s)

Filling up on hugs 

Falling into sweet puppy piles

Cuddling up for an outdoor movie

Sipping afternoon smoothies

Making new friends and reconnecting with old ones

Sharing a song, a piece of poetry, a performance or a story at Pass the Mic

Reading a good book under a tree

Gazing at the glorious star filled night sky

Curling up with a friend in a cuddle pod

Relaxing in hammocks

Making music and magic together and generally dillydallying, slacking and relaxing.

This gathering is open to EVERYONE: old Billys, new Billys, people of all identities and all genders. All are welcome!

Things to know:

We welcome people 18 or older of any gender.

You must pre-register to attend.

Please leave alcohol, recreational drugs and pets at home.

Please keep the space fragrance free to support Billys with chemical sensitivities.

All participants will be required to be fully vaccinated to attend this gathering. Verification will be requested as part of registration.

As a community, we all pitch in to make gatherings happen so when you register you will be asked to sign up for shifts to help out. Remember that many hands make light work, so lend us yours!

If you have questions or ideas, or if you’d like to contribute to the success of the gathering by serving as a sub-coordinator, please let us know.
