26th Aŭtuna Renkontiĝo de Esperanto

October 12–14, 2019 · Silver Bay, New York

Aŭtuna Renkontiĝo de Esperanto (ARE) brings together esperantists from the northeastern United States and eastern Canada for three days of fun and friendship. The event is held at the Silver Bay YMCA campus on the beautiful shores of Lake George at the foot of the Adirondacks.

Esperantists come mainly from Ontario, Quebec, New England, and New York, with past gatherings visited by esperantists from the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, and even Japan. This truly international experience is an opportunity to connect with others with different cultural backgrounds using a shared, second language.

What People are Saying

The perfect place to relax, meet new friends, and to improve your language skills. Awesome atmosphere, shared meals, and interesting discussions. ARE is my favorite event since moving to North America!

ARE is a fun event with a very unique flavor. The fall season, the Silver Bay campus, and the Esperanto communities from the U.S., Canada, Quebec, and a sprinkle of foreign guests, mix in the warm environment of Esperantujo to create a very special three-day weekend.

I was nervous because I’m only a beginner, but people were so welcoming that I can hardly wait to attend the next ARE!
