San Francisco is known for its love of the blues. After years of producing our Blues Festival on Polk Street, approximately 5 years ago, we needed to move the event to Martinez, CA. and change the name to the Bay Area Blues Festival. We are excited to be bringing the festival back to Polk Street!
If people are looking to escape the crowded downtown San Francisco chain stores and want to enjoy a warm, friendly neighborhood atmosphere, Polk Street is the place. Polk Street runs from Ghirardelli Square at Beach Street at the northern end, south to Market Street near City Hall and the Civic Center. Located on the west side of upscale Nob and Russian Hills, the neighborhood is in a San Francisco micro climate relatively immune to foul weather, especially during Summer.
The FREE Festival will feature two main stages, a merchant marketplace, arts and crafts, food booths, cafe seating areas, and much more.
