Really Really Free Market - Saturday, April 14th, 12 - 3pm 

No money. No trades. Everything is free! On the second Saturday in April because of rain on the first Saturday.

This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism sucks. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki; we can help you set up if you let us know before hand). Come and take what you can use. We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited. Requirements: Mutual respect. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.  https://www.facebook.com/events/1928860253855345/

Another Dope Queer Skate Day & Show at SubRosa - Sunday, April 15th, 2 - 10pm

From the facebook post (https://www.facebook.com/events/157734634934110/) Du 2 Popular Demand...Come one, Come all, Girls, Boys, POC, Trans, Non-Binaries, & Queers!! 

Santa Cruz is STILL a cultural hub for white/macho male, inflated ego bro's with an agenda to bash others who aren't heteronormative surf jocks or skater bois. A large proportion of the shopping in downtown Santa Cruz is made up of corporate skate and surf shops who capitalize on the culture of what normie's would consider cool and fashionable. Those who are stylistically unique, or just learning the basics of skating are often scrutinized or made fun of because of the overwhelming insecurities surrounding the collective heteronormative male ego. 

In response... We are going to be hosting our SECOND Queer Skateboarding Day with help from Oakland's Unity Skateboards! The last Queer Skateboarding Day & Show went so well that we are gunna try to make this a regular thingy. Let's keep making a space where people can come, skate, and hang out w/o getting vibed or made fun of!! 

Unity Queer Skateboarding is a DIY venture from Oakland, CA. Support or check them out here... https://www.unityzines.com/skate-team & https://www.instagram.com/unityskateboarding/

Last time, Unity was able to come out and hang w us for the event. This time around they're gunna be in New York and their sweet bod's aren't gunna be able to make it. Boo Hoo! However, they are still gunna help us out with a lovely flyer.

This is a formal invite to all of you queer, radical, skateboarders, rollerbladers, roller skaters, bikers, scooter kids, and the sort to come hang out with more people like yourselves! Let's have fun and roll around!! This is our opportunity to further and solidify the network of cool, friendly, queerdo sk8ers in the Santa Cruz area c: 

Embarrassed about not knowing any cool moves yet? Don't be tricked!!


Come learn how to ride, roll, and skate in a supportive, nurturing environment. <33 We will be meeting at 2pm at Derby Skatepark (508 Woodland Way, Santa Cruz, CA.)


After our skate session is all wrapped up, we are going to have a show at Subrosa featuring local acts who are made up of locals, queers, and skateboarders. <33

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
