What we're about

Aqus Community is a 501c3 California Nonprofit. We create fun opportunities for people to connect, build relationships and enjoy a sense of belonging to community. Through a variety of social events, programs, lectures and activities, we get people connected through shared interests in vibrant and friendly settings.

Our events are held around Petaluma in various locations and in Aqus Cafe - a neighborhood hotbed of community. Aqus Cafe began in 2006 in order to provide a shared space for gatherings in the spirit of people sharing, connecting and just getting to know each other Since then, hundreds of people gather each day at the Café, creating a culture of community that has spread beyond the Café walls.

Aqus Cafe has a monthly events calendar packed with a myriad of offerings to attract interests from a diverse demographic. Almost every night there is something to gather around - whether it's live music, the Speak Easy Literary Saloon, poetry nights, Science Salon, game nights, language groups, speed networking, or our own lecture series'...

We welcome people of all ages, interests and talents. Check out our upcoming Meetups and join in! We look forward to meeting you!
