After nine wonderful years, Rainbow Skate event managers, Brad Leary and Kim Hardin, are going into skating retirement! We want to thank everyone who's come out over the years and made this a safe and fun place to hang out and get the groove on!
At this time, we are not sure what will happen with gay skate at the Redwood Roller Rink. The owners are still deciding whether to continue with Rainbow Skate with new managers or switch to another theme.
We will try to update this page if we find out more, but our official last night is October 29th. We are going out with a "bang" since this is our traditional Halloween Costume Contest. Please join us to say goodbye and you might even win a prize!!
What is Rainbow Skate?
Wednesday Night is a Roller Skating Session hosted primarily, but not exclusively, for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Communities. This session began about fourteen years ago and was held at the San Mateo Rolladium every Wednesday Night until The Rolladium closed in 2001. Rainbow Skate then moved to the Redwood Roller Rink in Redwood City.
Where is Rainbow Skate?
Rainbow Skate is held every Wednesday evening, from 8:00 until 10:30 at the Redwood Roller Rink. The Rink is located at 1303 Main Street in Redwood City (click here for directions). Admission is $9 (which includes free rollerskate rental or you can bring your own skates or blades).
We have tables throughout the lobby and benches along the side wall. There are video games along the side wall for those that don't wish to skate or just want something to do while taking a break. In addition, our snack-bar is open for the sale of candy, chips, ice cream, various soft-drinks and bottled water. Alcoholic beverages are not sold, or permitted, at the Redwood Roller Rink.
