The California Men's Gatherings is an educational and social experience for a large group of 100-400 men. It began as an annual event in 1978. Currently, there are three annual CMG weekend events held over Memorial Day weekend (Spring), Labor Day weekend (Summer), and Thanksgiving weekend (Fall), since 1999. We also have two smaller annual events, Rancho Cicada and a retreat in Harbin Hot Springs. These smaller events are more social and currently do not have workshops.
Each of our three annual gatherings is planned by a group of men in a different area of California. Men in the Los Angeles area plan the Spring CMG. Men in the San Francisco Bay area and Sacramento plan the Summer CMG. Men in the San Diego area plan the Fall CMG. There are also many social events and workshops created throughout the year by the five area Event Committees.

What is our mission? Our Mission Statement. We are: Men mentoring men to be men.

What is our vision?
‘Within 3 years, the CMG will be a recognized resource for modeling and mentoring leadership in the gay community, providing continuity to all men across the state, to revitalize their spiritual, emotional, and physical lives through Gatherings and local events.’

What are our activities?
The activities of the California Men's Gatherings, and, in particular, the community gatherings are designed to inspire creativity and to promote understanding, trust, respect, intimacy, compassion and love among men of varying sexual orientations and identities, differently-abled men, men of all races and ethnic origins, and men of varying religious traditions and spiritual practices.

The primary activity of the California Men's Gatherings is to create gatherings in a safe and supportive environment in which men can confront, risk and experience the challenges and discomfort necessary for genuine growth, transformation and empowerment as men. (Adopted January 2002)
