Drum Circles

In Ventura County

COMMUNITY

DRUM CIRCLES are a fabulous way to meet others in our community. Bring the family, your own instruments, sunscreen, hat, water, high energy snack and don’t forget a chair or blanket to sit on. You don’t have to be a pro, just willing to have a great time! The circles are typically free of charge, but there might be a parking fee at some facilities.
