The Gathering Paths
August 5th - 7th, 2022

DoubleTree Hotel, San Jose, CA

About Between the Veils, The Gathering Paths, and Our Vendors:

The Gathering Paths is a conference during the weekend of August 5th-7th for those on a spiritual path that is outside of the mainstream including but not limited to Earth-based nature-based, pagan, polytheist, Native and/or Indigenous, diasporic, occult, and magical practices.

Between the Veils is a nonprofit organization that organizes and hosts the conference. We offer a wide range of workshops, presentations, and rituals from practitioners and teachers from around the world, as well as communal celebrations and other activities.

Our Vendor Room is an integral part of this conference. We are specifically looking for artisanal, handcrafted, or rare finds that our community will enjoy.

We ask that any products or imagery that could be cultural appropriation not be used during this event. This includes sage that was not ethically sourced, dream catchers, arrowheads, voodoo dolls, etc. If you are part of the culture that these products come from or you have permission to sell these products from that culture please let us know in the open field below. We will be vetting our vendors and do not want to deny anyone because of a misunderstanding. We will be bringing any concerns to our BIPOC advisory committee for review.

When purchasing your vendor spot, you will receive one free full-access registration pass and one half-off registration pass so that you may enjoy the presentations, workshops, and other events when you are not vending your wares!

 

TIMING & LOCATION:

The vendor room will open to vendors for load-in early in the morning on Friday, August 5th. We expect to open our vendor room to attendees for shopping 2pm-8pm that day, and then 10am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday the 6th and 7th.

This conference takes place at the Doubletree by Hilton in San Jose, CA.
The vendor room will be located on the first floor of the hotel in the ballroom right next to registration and the stairway to the main presentation rooms.

 

WHAT TO BRING:

You will be provided one table of about 6x2 feet and two chairs. You are free to bring in any additional equipment and your own decorations, but you cannot hang things on the walls of the hotel.

Since this is our first year, we expect a minimum of 500 attendees, but cannot guarantee more than 1,000. Because this event will be taking place during Covid we are requiring all our attendees, presenters, and vendors to show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the event.

ELECTRICITY:

Electricity is limited for safety (to avoid blowing a fuse) and vendors who need access to a wall plug for electricity will need to pay into a fund we have to provide this feature safely. You will be contacted to opt-in to this feature. Because of noise concerns, generators are not permitted inside the vendor room.

 

Further details will be emailed to vendors as the date approaches.

 

​Before entry, you will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test within the past 72 hours.
