Saturday October 8th in San Francisco
Our annual Fall Classic, the TRPS Festival of Rock Posters is set to go for Saturday October 8th, 2011 at the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park in the beautiful city of San Francisco.
Featuring rock poster artists and dealers from around the country, this is the biggest rock poster event of its kind anywhere! Those of you who have attended this show in the past know that this is the one not to miss. We bring in the best of the best, and you’ll find everything from vintage psychedelic treasures to the best of the modern silkscreen movement. This year’s version promises to offer another stellar lineup!
The Hall of Flowers (Old County Fair Building) is at the corner of Ninth and Lincoln on the South edge of the Park, not far from the Haight, the DeYoung Museum, and the Academy of Sciences. There are plenty of great restaurants close by, too. Heck, make it a weekend and bring the family to enjoy the great weather, an awesome poster event, and everything else San Francisco has to offer!
The TRPS Festival of Rock Posters runs from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Admission is $10 for the public, and $5 for TRPS members with card. Yes, you can join up (or renew) there and take advantage of the member discount.

The Rock Poster Society will be presenting a very special version of our Rock Art By the Bay artists’ show at the Harmony Festival at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA on June 10th, 11th, & 12th, 2011.
The Harmony Festival has over the years become a premier music, arts, and cultural festival in Northern California. This year’s version features a stellar lineup of bands including The Flaming Lips, Primus, and Michael Franti & Spearhead, among dozens of others. The festival also features an array of speakers, unique arts, cultural events and exhibits, and of course vendors and food galore.
We’re stoked to have made a special arrangement to present our poster artists event as part of a very special “Arts Pavilion” at the Harmony Festival. We’ll be sharing Harmony Hall with Tribe 13, a nationally known collective of visionary artists. Anyone who’s a fan of rock posters and art will be treated with a special treat for the senses.

The Rock Poster Society (TRPS) is pleased to announce the rock poster art event of the summer. TRPS is teaming up with the American Poster Institute to present Flatstock 25 – By the Bay on Saturday July 10, 2010 at the Hall of Flowers in San Francisco’s beautiful Golden Gate Park. The show will run from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The FLATSTOCK poster show series is presented by the American Poster Institute (API). It is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today. The Flatstock shows in Austin, Seattle, Chicago, and Hamburg are known worldwide as premier events in the poster world. The very first Flatstock was held in San Francisco back in the nineties, and they’ve long wanted to come back out here for their landmark 25th show.
TRPS’ Rock Art By the Bay artists show has been a regular happening every summer for some years now. Melded with the Flatstock event, this will be a very special show. TRPS is thrilled to be working with API to bring this landmark event to San Francisco.
In keeping with Flatstock and Rock Art By the Bay tradition, this show will be artists-only, and admission is FREE to the public. We’re expecting an outstanding lineup of artists for this one, and this is a great opportunity for us to introduce a lot of new faces to the Bay Area poster community. Mark down the date Saturday July 10, 2010 on your calendars. You won’t want to miss this one! I hope to see you there!
