About The Event

CSPC absolutely could not do what we do without you! The CSPC wouldn’t exist without its volunteers. You do so much and it’s time to relax and appreciate all we’ve accomplished! This event is open to current volunteers and members interested in learning more about the volunteer corps.

 This free, self-governed event will be available to all members who are volunteers or who are interested in finding out more about volunteering.  There will be a volunteer orientation at the beginning.  If you are or know someone who wants to get volunteer certified but hasn’t been able to make the Thursday orientations, here’s one on a Saturday!  Because this is a self-governed event, we ask that you help out as you can.  First to arrive please help put out chairs, everyone please help with putting out and cleaning up dishes and foodstuffs, the last ones there help with clean-up. 

 After volunteer orientation is an opportunity to relax and socialize in Gallery Erato. This is not a play party and as such will not have monitors. Clothes-on cuddle piles, chatting, and sharing of food are highly encouraged. Sex and BDSM play will not be allowed. This will be a potluck, so bring a dish if you can! Wear something comfortable. PJs and soft blankets encouraged!  We'll have a few board games available, but bring your favorites if you have them!

About our home:

Gallery Erato is Pioneer Square’s hottest new kinky art gallery which boasts two floors of play space situated against backdrop of historic exposed brick and beams. The main floor of this space is wheelchair accessible, but our basement area is only accessible by a staircase. Restrooms are gender neutral. This is not a scent free space.

Directions and Parking

Gallery Erato is located at 309 1st Ave S. Pioneer Square has free on-street parking after 6pm and this neighborhood is very well served by public transportation, including many bus lines, the streetcar, and the LINK light rail.


  • There is a small lip from the sidewalk into the Gallery.

  • We have a wheelchair ramp that our registration volunteers can put down to transition over this lip so that our main floor will be accessible to folks in wheelchairs. Please let us know when you arrive if you need the ramp.

  • There will be play stations, refreshments, and restrooms on the main floor. Unfortunately, the basement of our space is only accessible via stairs.

  • This is not a scent free space.
