Event Description

The Bay Area Bomba y Plena Workshop invites you to remember and celebrate life and growth that results from loss and suffering. Through death and loss comes rebirth and strengthening.

Join us in remembering & celebrating by participating in our COMMUNITY ALTAR. This installation will represent, in an authentic and intentional way, the suffering, loss, and renewal of life that Puerto Rico and its people have and are experiencing as a result of hurricane Maria. We encourage you to bring pictures or object to add to the community altar!

Come hungry so we can enjoy a COMMUNITY MEAL with Puerto Rican cuisine by Cali-Rican catering. Menu coming soon! (Food not included with Ticket.)

Bring your dancing shoes, because DJ JOSE RUIZ will be throwing down his incredible collection of tropical music!

Plus, the Bay Area Bomba y Plena Workshop invites you to participate in a special BATEY BORICUA COMMUNITY BOMBAZO (BOMB & PLENA JAM). So bring your faldas, barriles, panderos, voice and positive vibes to join us in a community jam. Or just come enjoy the music and dance!

Doors open at 4:30pm
$10 Advance / $15 Door / $5 Kids under 12
