Union Street Festival
Next Show Dates: May 31 – June 1, 2008
The 30th Annual Union Street Festival is one of San Francisco’s largest free art festivals. More than 100,000 attendees come from all over the United States to enjoy the event. The festival features 200 artists, 20 gourmet food booths, live entertainment on two stages, bistro style cafes, spacious wine & beer gardens and a large family adventure area with children’s activities and hands-on art projects.
To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of this great Festival, they will be featuring a number of activities at the event this year that represent the unique history of the Union Street Festival. Take a walk back in time at a special photographic exhibit we are creating that will show what Union Street was like 100 years ago.
The Festival is held on Union Street between Gough & Steiner Streets in San Francisco’s Cow Hollow district. The district was one of the first neighborhoods in San Francisco to convert its historic Victorians into popular boutiques, art galleries and restaurants. From an architectural perspective, the distinct turn-of-the-century atmosphere makes a walk along Union Street a delightful journey back in time. The atmosphere along modern day Union Street is anything but old-fashioned. The street is where some of the City’s most fashionable, upscale residents live and play.
