Humanist Program - join us at the Avenue for All Festival

Columbus Metropolitan Library: Parsons Branch

This month we will meet at the Parson's Branch Library at noon and walk down to the Avenue for All Festival on Parson's Ave.

Please join us at noon and wear an HCCO shirt as we support this wonderful event!

You can read about the Avenue for All Festival here:

Avenue for All is a festival championing the vision that Parsons Avenue, and indeed the South Side, are a place for everyone, no matter our age, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation or economic background. While historically Parsons Avenue has been a dividing line, it has become a gathering space for the whole community. We invite the community to experience the beauty and power of the South Side’s rich history and diversity, and be a part of creating an Avenue for All!

Skeptics in the Pub

Hofbräuhaus Columbus

Skeptics in the Pub is an informal gathering of skeptics, science enthusiasts, critical thinkers, and like-minded individuals. Our hope is to provide an opportunity for rational minded people to socialize, talk, and discuss topics they find interesting. There is usually no predetermined format, and we usually do not have speakers or a particular topic for the day, although we're not opposed to the idea if you'd like to volunteer.

Hofbräuhaus has a great selection of traditional German beers, mixed drinks as well as non alcoholic options. The food is good and it seems to be pretty quiet with lots of seating - perfect for Skeptics in the Pub! There is free parking to the north of the building just off Rail Street.

2023 Pride

Dodge Park and Community Center

We are doing Pride 2023!

Please sign up here so that we can have your contact information

Show Columbus that HCCO supports the worth and dignity of ALL people! This June we are marching on Saturday morning and we need volunteers to march! All participants will be given a free HCCO Pride T-shirts, designed by our own Karla Norquist, will be available to show your humanist pride!

If you plan on marching please fill note:
Pride this year will be more structured than previous years. In order to be allowed into the staging area you are required to have a braclet. As such, our plan is to meet at Dodge Park and walk to the staging area. We will leave the park at 9:00 am to try to get a reasonable position in the parade. Please plan to arrive before 9:00am. If you have not found us by 9:00 am you are running the risk of not being able participate. This is due to changes in the rules for marching in Pride this year which we do not have any control over.

You can find these instructions with a map here:
