The Sokoto House hosts a variety of events, some regular and some unique, but all to the benefit the participants, our community, and the free and healthy exchange of ideas and knowledge.

Free Community Markets

These recurring events, organized by the Lowercase Leaders, feature an open market of donated goods that are all free to the community. Think of them as large yard sales where no money is needed.

Outdoor Movie
