Together we make a profound difference

Annual Communication

Each year, California Masons and friends gather at the Grand Lodge in San Francisco to celebrate the accomplishments of the past fraternal year, to vote upon fraternal legislation, and to plan for the year ahead.

170th Annual Communication

Annual Communication weekend, October 18–20, is an opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of your peers, salute the outgoing Grand Master, and welcome a new one. It’s a time to honor the bonds we form between brothers. Join us for this celebration of our fraternity.


Special Events: In addition to attending with attending business sessions, you and your guest are invited to join us at these special events.

Rockin '50s: Ladies and Families Lunch
Milkshakes, jukeboxes, checkered floors, doo-wop, and soda fountains—we're having a Rockin' 50s party, and everyone's invited. On Saturday afternoon, partners and kids are invited to pop on their poodle skirts and leather jacket, and dance the afternoon away to 50s favorites at the Fairmont Hotel’s Venetian Room. Reserve your space today and get ready for a thoroughly retro pre-Gala afternoon.

The Grand Master's Banquet
Toast the good work done and friendships formed on Saturday, October 19 at the Annual Communication gala. Held at the 110-year old Fairmont Hotel—a sparkling jewel atop Nob Hill—the night will reflect the luxury and revelry of San Francisco’s golden era, mixed with some old Hollywood flair. Mix and mingle during cocktail hour before enjoying a lavish seated dinner, with awards and recognitions throughout the night. Marking the culmination of a weekend steeped in tradition, the gala is a celebration of the bonds of brotherhood, and will be a night you’ll never forget. Space is limited—reserve your tickets today.
