Downtown Santa Rosa Creating Pedestrian-Friendly Zones

Downtown Santa Rosa is closing three blocks of Fourth Street to create a downtown promenade that will allow businesses to use sidewalk and street parking areas to seat customers outdoors.  

The extended room for shoppers, diners and strollers is meant to create harmony between two opposing forces: The desire to have a thriving business-rich corridor along Fourth Street near Old Courthouse Square and the responsibility to help curb the spread of COVID-19, which is believed to be more prone to spread indoors than outside.

Location: Fourth Street between B and E streets

(Virtual) Museum Conversations with Alicia Sanchez

Join us for a fascinating conversation with labor organizer and activist Alicia Sanchez and Museum Associate Director and History Curator, Eric Stanley. Sanchez will be speaking about her experiences as a lifelong advocate for human rights and what inspired her to follow this path. She will also be answering questions from the audience. Sanchez is currently featured in the "From Suffrage to #MeToo: Groundbreaking Women in Sonoma County" exhibition.Alicia SanchezThe daughter of farm workers, Alicia Sanchez was born in in El Paso, Texas and later moved to Sonoma County with her family. Following graduation from Santa Rosa High School, she attended the University of Colorado, earning a degree in Political Science, and then went on to UC Hastings College of Law. Following law school, she went to work for United Farm Workers for Cesar Chavez, representing fired workers before the Labor Relations Board. As a labor organizer, Sanchez orchestrated successful union campaigns at several hotels in the county and helped shape the Workers’ Center on Corby Avenue in Santa Rosa, a clearinghouse for workers and their families. She also helped found a countywide women’s group, Mujeres Unidas, aimed at addressing Latina issues. She has played many roles over the years at KBBF, a bilingual radio station, and is currently the president of the board. Through her work, Sanchez has helped build a loose-knit system of support for Latino immigrant workers in California and Sonoma County. Her passionate advocacy now plays out over the airwaves, at events, and at protests.

Pre-registration for this free virtual program is required. Registration is limited.

To ensure an enjoyable viewing experience for all, we ask that microphones remain muted and questions be asked in the chat section only.

For assistance in registering, or to submit questions for Alicia in advance, please contact Jon Del Buono, programs@museumsc.org.

Mike McGuire's 2020 North Coast Chili Feed!  Drive-Thru & Zoom.

Step 1: DRIVE UP (1:00–3:00 PM on Sunday, August 16)

You’ll never get out of your car: Pick up your delicious chili lunch (or save it for supper) at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts. Enjoy our first-class, no-touch, curbside service at our lightning-fast drive-thru event. 

You may not be able to see the big smiles behind our masks, but the farm animals we’ll have on hand will bring big smiles to you and your kids. You might even get on the radio – we’ll be broadcasting live on KZST!

Step 2: ZOOM IN & Let’s Catch Up! (5:00-6:00pm on Sunday, August 16)

The real fun begins at our informal Zoom family happy hour! It’s been way too long since we’ve been together and we would love to catch up. The Zoom will be informal, fun and we encourage you to sit back, chow down on your chili, show off your favorite adult beverage or share the camera with your pooch. You won’t want to miss our goat cam – our version of a virtual petting zoo!

With all that’s going on, this event will be a break from reality and the highlight of the summer. Please join us!

HERE'S OUR COMMITMENT THIS YEAR: 100% TO CHARITY

Because we never fail to be inspired by your generosity when it comes to helping our neighbors in need, 100 percent of the proceeds of this year’s chili feed are going to two life-changing charities:

  • The Sawubona Black Student Scholarship Fund at the Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC). We’re launching this scholarship in partnership with the Black Student Union and the SRJC Foundation – and the Foundation will match the first $30,000 in contributions.
  • 10,000 Degrees, which helps students from low-income families get to and through college. Most of these students are Latinx and the first in their family to go to college.
