SOFA’s largest art and musical event of the year features the Sofa Parade, street performers, open art studios, live music, fire dancers, food trucks and more. Costumes encouraged! Free and family friendly. Meet the artists of the SOFA district and celebrate!
SOFA is an arts neighborhood in Santa Rosa, California with approximately 40 artist studios, some galleries, small and locally owned shops and great places to eat.
WinterBlast is the largest event held by SOFA each year (think of it as the poor man’s Mardi Gras). The center piece of the celebration is a sofa parade. You are welcome to create a sofa for the parade, it needs to be mobile and not gas-powered. Typically, people push the sofas through the short parade. Parade sofas line up in the parking lot north of Atlas Coffee at 4:30 pm on the 17th. There are two parades during the event.
Artwork for this year’s WinterBlast poster is by the talented Collin Morrow.
