(This is compilation of San Francisco events for the Clarice app)
Cherry Blossom Festival (April 9 – April 17)
Come celebrate the arrival of spring at Japantown!
When the cherry trees start to blossom, this is where you should be. Ever since 1967, this San Francisco neighbourhood has welcomed the season with a colorful parade and dazzles the audience with delicious Japanese treats.
Thousands of people join this festivity that features traditional activities, including art crafts and cultural performances.
The 2016 edition is divided between two weekends, April 9-10 and April 16-17 – keep an eye on the festival’s agenda so you don’t miss out on anything!
Union Street Festival (4th-5th of June)
Fashion, technology and food all cross paths at the Union Street festival!
Craft beer and wine aficionados will have three pavilions where they can sample drinks and food from local restaurants. Music concerts, cooking demonstrations and a fashion show are among the festival’s main features.
The highlight of Union Street is the waiters race on Sunday. This is your chance to see the city’s best servers trying to run with a tray of wine glasses without spilling it!
San Francisco Pride (25th-26th of June)
Let go of your inhibitions at the San Francisco Pride!
Taking over the streets since the 70’s, this celebration gathers lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders and anyone who likes to party during the last weekend of June.
The rainbow flag has become an international symbol of the LGBT community and was first shown at the 1978’s festival edition, a design by the artist Gilbert Baker. You can spot a large version of it flying over the Harvey Milk Plaza!
Before the famous Sunday parade, the city comes alive for the Pink Saturday party, a can’t miss event at the Castro district.
Outside Lands (August 5th-August 7th 2016)
Outside Lands is “the” music festival of the season!
Every year this three-day event fills up the Golden Gate Park with over 200,000 people. Artists like Radiohead, The Black Keys and Beck dazzled the San Francisco crowd with their performances on the festival’s first edition in 2008.
Tickets start at $115 but you really can’t put a prize on this experience!
