Join members of the Frederick CUUPS community for an informal hangout and check-in. The Witching Hour is a social time. Everyone should have their favorite beverage at the ready. There are no rules about this beverage. ALL beverages are equally welcome.

This event does not have a structure per se. You are invited to attend as your true self, in the company of other pagans. You may wear a hat, or not. You may paint your face, or not. Do you have a new tattoo? You can show us if you’d like! Did you just get a new item for your altar that is the absolute BEST THING YOU’VE EVER SEEN? Why yes, we would love to see that. Depending on the number of attendees, breakout rooms may be employed. See you there!
