If you want to see events near you, the answer is to set up an event near you and see who says they can come. Don't wait for someone else to set it up.
It could be a nature hike, or a pub moot (getting together for dinner and drinks), or a book club, or a meet-and-greet, or visiting some local museum with Viking or Scandinavian or German themed exhibits, or a full-blown blót, or coffee at the local Starbucks, or a viewing party for the premier of Vikings on History Channel, or a movie night at your house, or anything else.
And if nobody shows up the first time? Keep doing it. You never know when someone is going to stumble on your event who's twenty minutes away from you. Keep at it. None of our kindreds or tribes were built overnight. We all kept at it, over years. Don't be afraid to try, and don't get discouraged right out of the gate.
|AHHHH! Demon cat!|
And don't be afraid of the personal touch. I make it a point to ask everyone I see wearing a Thor's hammer if they're Asatru or not. One of our newly regular faces was someone I happened to meet in the parking lot of the local supermarket. I gave him one of our flyers, and now he's a regular. (That's another thing; always have a card, or a flyer, or something handy. I keep a stack of them in my car at all times, for exactly this sort of case.)
And if I can offer any advice, or help, or anything else, just ask. Or better yet, ask your local AFA folkbuilders. That's what they're there for. I'm just a guy with a tribe in New Jersey.
