Friday Night Outdoor Roller Skate DJ Party: “Midnight Rollers” | SF
Strap on your skates and roller disco around the city at the Midnight Rollers Friday Night Skate party.
This weekly skate (as long as it’s not raining or during Burning Man) hits up San Francisco’s main attractions, all while blasting their own beats from two jogging strollers mounted with speakers.
So meet up with this active group of night owls for a unique, late-night adventure around the city complete with songs you can skate to – usually with lots of breaks built in for catching your breath and socializing. And for the adventurous, there’s often skating down the escalators down into BART.
Friday Night Skate
Every Friday | Arrive at 8:45 pm. Roll out at 9 pm.
Meet in front of Ferry Building in SF
Skaters arrive at about 8:45 pm. They skate and dance in the plaza as the beat blasts from the stereo. At 9 pm, the GodFather, David Miles, sends the skaters off with a roar over the microphone.
Seriously… every Friday?
Yup; the Friday night skate is scheduled every Friday, but may be canceled if there’s rain, or during Burning Man. We recommend always checking cora.org before heading out to make sure the event is still taking place because you never know what can happen.
