For over 20 years, drummers have gathered at the Land Trust on the first and third Saturdays of each month, starting around dark. The drumming ends promptly at 11:00 with a closing circle, where participants share announcements and heartsongs.
The Drum Circle is free, but we are very thankful for your contributions. Suggested donation is $1 each for drummers, other musicians, and dancers, $5 each for spectators. If you enjoy your experience, please help spread the word!
No drugs or alcohol are allowed at the Drum Circle. Flash cameras are also not permitted.
Please be considerate of our neighbors when attending. Drive slowly and be careful not to block driveways or fire hydrants when parking. Orange cones mark reserved parking. If you can, park on the surrounding streets to minimize impact on our immediate neighbors. The Clifton Sanctuary, four short blocks away, makes its parking lot available on Land Trust event nights. When leaving, respect neighbors’ need for quiet and keep voices low.

Once you enter the wood-chip covered paths leading into the Land Trust, you begin to forget that you are in the city. The drumming lures you to the firepit and you are transformed by the magic. Stay for the closing circle to share spontaneous feelings prompted by the experience, and add your voice to a harmonious chant of OM!
