At The Crucible: 1260 7th St, Oakland, CA

What time should I arrive?

7:00pm! Arrive on time to participate in the action stations, nosh on yummy food and drinks, bid on fabulous items in our silent auction, and more.

How do I get there?

The Crucible is just across the street from the West Oakland BART station, so we encourage you to take public transportation.  For drivers, you may PARK in the BART station parking lot, or find street parking in the neighborhood.

And don’t worry about getting home on public transportation: BART has extended their Friday night service!  The last train of the night leaves West Oakland station headed for San Francisco at 12:55am, and leaves West Oakland headed for North Oakland/Berkeley at 12:32am.

What should I wear?

Whatever makes you look and feel fabulous! We encourage everyone to dress in their favorite party attire – bonus points for Ruckus colors: Black, Red, and Gold!
Please note that if you want to rappel, you will need to wear a harness over your clothing (which we will provide, of course), so dress accordingly.

What is included with my ticket?

Full event admission, tickets for artisanal small plates from each of our three vendors (Fist of Flour, Onigilly, and Boffo Cart), a delicious gourmet cupcake from Angel Cakes, and bottomless drinks from the bar (beer, wine, and a special Fire & Fury-themed Ruckus cocktail)!

What if some of my friends haven’t bought tickets yet?

They can still come! We will sell entrance-only admission at the door for $25-50 sliding scale, with a limited number of food and drink tickets available for sale while supplies last. Go ahead and invite them!


For the last 15 years, The Ruckus Society has been the movement’s premiere source of tools, training, and strategy for creative and effective ACTION. We’re in it to win it, and direct action gets the goods! 

After all these years, Ruckus’s fire is still burning strong…  Join us September 23rd to celebrate the past and help light the fire for the next 15 years!

This party will have everything. You won’t want to miss:

…and most importantly:

The chance to party with some of the hardest working hellraisers around, and support Ruckus’s critical work building movement through action for the next 15 years!

And – don’t miss your chance to take home some fabulous items from our silent auction thanks to generous donations from our partners! Including:
