The majority of lolitas are most active online, however there are ways of finding local communities as well. Most communities, or "comms" as they are often called, can be found as Facebook groups. Most tend to go by their state or big city names, and there is a comm for just about every major location in most countries.
While the Western lolita community got its start on the EGL group on Livejournal, it is considered dead by most and is usually only active every January when lolitas make the journey back for wardrobe post season. A list of current active groups online can be found below. Last updated 01/15/2020.
The lolita fashion community can also be found on places such as Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Tumblr, Pinterest, Lookbook, and more, however as most sites are geared towards the individual there are no centralized hubs on these sites for all things lolita. Typically one can find other lolitas by checking hashtags or tags commonly used: lolitafashion, lolita_fashion, egl, elegantgothiclolita, sweetlolita, sweetlolita fashion, classiclolita, classiclolitafashion, gothiclolita, gothiclolitafashion
(Many lolitas also tag their posts with brand names when applicable [such as wearing that brand in their post] so these can also be used as methods of finding lolitas online.)
There are currently a few notable lolita fashion galas and conventions that happen annually in several countries, a list is available below with links to the events' webpages:

This public hosting of the Yaplog archives was created by Raine Dragon. Yaplog was a Japanese blogging platform that officially closed in January of 2020 after at least 10 years of service. Many lolitas and lolita clothing brands such as Angelic Pretty had their own blogs hosted there, some of which have been saved.
