  • Private House

Welcome to the North Jersey Poly Potluck! 


Poly Friendly people gathering together to share food and community in Northern New Jersey.

"Relationships thrive when they are supported in a community that holds them sacred." Lisa, Event Host

What to expect: Poly friendly gathering for all ages, genders and relationship descriptions. 


This is a relaxed, casual event for experienced Poly's, newbies, curious, sexuality positive and open minded people. And anyone who enjoys community, transparent communication and intimacy.

This is come as you are space. Share what is true for you now; relate with each other, ourselves and grow a community, cultivate relationship skills and to have some light hearted fun!

The formal discussion circle starts with a topic and is open to questions and concerns after the topic discussion. Each month will have a new topic.

For the potluck, bring your favorite dish or dessert, enough for yourself and to share with 6 people. Include ingredients written on index cards for people with food allergies. This is an alcohol free event. Soft drinks will be provided by the host.

The event is Poly Family Friendly, kids are welcome and must be supervised by the adults who bring them. Teens and children are "at choice" to sit with the adults in the discussion group as long as they agree to the rules of the circle. Anyone of any age who becomes disruptive or disrespects boundaries will be asked to leave the discussion circle. Contact Lisa at [masked] for information.
