Upcoming Events

The Down Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area’s (DSCBA) number one concern is always the safety and health of our members, volunteers and staff.  As you know, we are in times of uncertainty regarding the effects of the COVID-19 Virus. 

We are committed to follow the recommendations of our local public health departments which includes cancelling or postponing programs where safe social distancing can be difficult.

Therefore, the DSCBA has made the difficult decision to postpone the ImprovaGanza Workshop and the Galactic Gala. Please Save the Dates for our upcoming events! 

 Galactic Gala


We are committed to following state and local safety guidelines and therefore made the decision to reschedule the DSCBA Galactic Gala to October 17th.  Our hope is that by fall restrictions will be lifted, the world will be healing, and we will be able to gather together to celebrate with all of you.   

However, due to the overwhelming uncertainty regarding the rest of the year, we have shifted gears and are excited to offer a spectacular online auction starting Saturday, May 23rd. Those of you that attend our Gala know the amazing items we procure from a very generous community.  So get ready to bid bid bid. 


Registration will be opening soon!


A three-hour Improv Workshop for our members with Down syndrome.
