We're improving the SPUR event registration process.
Later this summer, we will launch a new ticketing system and we'll be asking you to register for each event you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes and better tailor our schedules and offerings.


Workforce development and employment-based practices have been proven to help end homelessness while also complementing “housing first” efforts. Groups like San Jose’s Downtown Streets Team work to change perceptions, rebuild positive work habits and restore community for those experiencing homelessness. Join us for a conversation with these important groups that are partnering to train and provide employment opportunities for the San Jose community.
