National Cohousing Open House Weekend in the East Bay

Welcome to National Cohousing Open House Weekend — in the East Bay, and Beyond!

Lots of area cohousing neighborhoods, established and forming, are doing events, both in person and virtual, this weekend (and in the week around it). You’ll find events in:National Cohousing Open House Weekend 2024

  • Berkeley: Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Berkeley Cohousing, Sunday morning (Boichik Bagels and an hands-on Global EcoVillage Network card deck experience with Cohousing Coach Betsy Morris included in the last hour). Plus a virtual gathering Sunday morning for the nearly “shovel-ready” community nearby, Berkeley Moshav.
  • Fremont: Mission Peak Cohousing will be hosting walks around its site on Sunday afternoon
  • Oakland: Virtual tour Saturday afternoon for Phoenix Commons, the area's only Senior Cohousing neighborhood.
  • Pleasant Hill: In-person tour and workday, Saturday morning.
  • Beyond: Events in West Sacramento, Fair Oaks, and the Sierra foothills, as well as a talk in West Marin next Wednesday, will be listed on the Cohousing California website.
  • Everywhere: There’s a virtual national gathering Sunday afternoon wrapping things up. And don't forget the monthly "Cohousing Commons" national virtual gathering on May 10.

Below you’ll find a listing of key events (including some national virtual ones) of interest, plus a map of the in-person gatherings.

Please click on each individual event to learn more about it and RSVP. Please note the date/time — these are communities of private homes (or a future community site), and they aren’t equipped for you to drop in unannounced.
