YOU’RE INVITED TO SOFA’S BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR! The SOFA Arts District comes alive each November with Winterblast, best known for the electric sofa parade, where participants create whimsically decorated sofas and push them down the street, accompanied by the Hubbub Club marching band, costumed performers, giant puppets and many surprises. Streets will be blocked off for the parade, plus three stages with live music. FREE and family-friendly! Parades run twice, at 6pm and 8pm.
During Winterblast, over 30 artists and art galleries in the neighborhood open their doors to the public. Spinster Sisters Restaurant, Criminal Baking Company, Atlas Coffee along with an assortment of food trucks will offer food and beverages. Beer and wine will be offered for sale to benefit local non-profits. Thrill to the daredevil bicycle riders of the Whiskydrome and the Aries Fire Arts Collective, juggling, dancing, and playing with fire.
South A Street and Sebastopol Avenue will be closed for the event. Park at the First Street parking structure, City Hall parking lot, or the Santa Rosa Plaza parking structure nearby. Better yet, walk or bicycle down!
