About Us

Revel is a community for women 50+ that is first and foremost about friendship. Our Revel events and smaller groups are places to meet other women who are “Reveling” in mid-life-- physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

Our community is made up of a diverse group of women: single and partnered, working and retired, kids and no kids, new to their area or have lived there for decades. We’re each growing in different ways: engaging in new interests, reinventing ourselves and our work, or simply trying to find new friends. Our differences create a unique and vibrant community, and yet we are all united in our belief that we are each worthy of having a voice, of being seen, and feeling as though we matter. Revel began in 2019 in the San Francisco Bay Area, where our in-person events are focused, and where most of our current members call home. We have shifted virtually in light of Covid-19, since friendship and community matter now more than ever, and so we now welcome new Revelers to join us from across the US. Our virtual events and opportunities to connect online will continue even as our local area emerges from shelter-in-place advisories.

Our Community Experience

Our members from across the Bay Area gather together for joyous events that celebrate our entire community. The Revel New Year’s Soiree rang in 2020 with conversation, laughter and the spark of new friendships.

I met several people, and had real conversations. I loved it. I am convinced that Revel is for me, and just registered for two events.

Revel members build relationships from day one.

I signed up for a hike in Edgewood Park —my first Revel event—and asked the group if anyone was driving from SF. Lauren offered me a ride. We started talking and the conversation hasn’t stopped since. We became fast friends.”

Member from San Francisco, since Dec 2019

An intimate conversation at a local coffee shop, a walk through a new park or a lunch chat are the simple but real ways our members build fulfilling relationships. Small-group, recurring events offer opportunities to connect deeply - and laugh until your cheeks hurt.

I’ve met super interesting women through Revel. Every woman has a story to tell and everyone is supportive of your story.”

Learning from experts in their field alongside fellow women adds a rich dimension to Revel member relationships. After hearing from leading authors, researchers and thought leaders many members will meet again to discuss the topic or share their perspectives.

I liked how you made us feel like we - for the most part still strangers -  were long time friends.”

Member from Mountain View, since Oct 2019

Our Story

Lisa and I are still in our thirties, but even from this vantage point we can see that as men get older and grayer they’re held in more esteem, but we women tend to get more invisible. We wanted to start Revel as a place where women can “Revel” in their wisdom and experience and feel supported throughout the many transitions of mid-life. Revel began in 2019 in the San Francisco Bay Area and we’re well on our way to connecting women 50+ across the US in a meaningful way. We hope you’ll join us.
