Event Details

Rolligion is on a roll in San Francisco. The Church of 8 Wheels roller disco in San Francisco has people rediscovering just how much fun life with wheels on your feet can be. While most churches hold services on Sundays, the Holy Rollers of the Church of 8 Wheels hold their rolligious services every Sunday at Skatin’ Place, 6th Ave and Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park.

San Francisco Skaters Showcase
Sunday, July 24, 2016 | 1-4 pm
Skatin’ Place, 6th Ave. & JFK Drive, Golden Gate Park, SF

San Francisco’s roller skaters will gather at Skatin’ Place, 6th Ave and JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park for an event called, “The San Francisco Skaters Showcase”. Roller skaters from throughout the Bay Area will roll in to show off their skills on the wheels. There will be single, pairs and group performances. There’s even a segment for the audience to come join in the line dance as they all do the “Cupid Shuffle”.

The event is free. Just get a spot on the grass and watch the show. D. Miles, San Francisco’s GodFather of Skate will serve as your MC for the day. Roller skating is getting people moving and getting fit. It’s fun, interactive and they are inviting the public and check it all out. They plan to show you why they consider skating here a rolligious experience. Come out for a funky good time.

About Golden Gate Park’s Skatin’ Place
In 1985, David Miles and members of the Golden Gate Park Skate Patrol convinced the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Dept. to permanently close the 6th Ave. and Fulton entrance to Golden Gate Park to car traffic. Parks Planner Deborah Learner had the street redesigned to fit as an outdoor roller rink. 30 years later is the best example of how a public outdoor roller rink can bring joy to thousands of people. Whether you’re skating or on the hillside watching, spend a Sunday afternoon here and you will agree that this is the happiest place in Golden Gate Park.
