Wise Woman Witches Walk 2019

What is Witches Walk Lafayette?

A festive stroll through downtown Lafayette where diverse women enjoy each other’s company while raising money for a local charity.

This year’s Witches Walk Lafayette begins in Lafayette Park on Mt. Diablo Blvd. We will gather, learn the broom dance, and then take a stroll through town with stops hosted by local businesses. Our final stop will be back at the park where you can picnic, take a few photos, head out to one of our wonderful restaurants in town, or just hang out to celebrate each other and talk about how we all need to step up as women in our community.

How can I get involved?

Please register below with your name, contact info, and donation amount. We ask each attendee donate $20 or more to support this year’s nonprofit, Planned Parenthood of Northern California.

Remember to dress in your craziest, sassiest, brainiest witch costume. All witches welcome!
