What is thePLAYCE?

thePLAYCE is an event-based project for adults in the San Francisco Bay Area to access play and creativity. Officially launched in May 2022, thePLAYCE started out as a series of pop-up events.  In the future, we hope to design a brick-and-mortar location where folks can enjoy a variety of innovative play structures and interactive activities, or sit back and relax with food, drink, and music.


Our goal is to provide spaces for adults to make play an essential part of their well-being, by hosting events with activities that make more joy and creative connection possible. Our hope is that people will make new friends, have fun, and want to keep coming back for more. When we individually thrive, the community thrives as a whole.


Curiosity - experiencing new activities with an open mind

Spontaneity - more exploring, less overthinking

Connection -  bringing communities together in shared space

Inclusion - centering the experiences of people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA+ folks
