How Weird Street Faire

  • 200 2nd St SF, CA, 94105 United States (map)

On the 5th day of May, your esteemed presence is requested upon the streets of San Francisco. A Costumed Cotillion shall take place from High Noon until 8 of the Eve, at Howard and Second Streets in the faire City by the Bay. Be cloaked in costumes as colorful as the sunsets, and as dazzling as the stars.

How Weird is an experience that transcends the normal. And 2019 will be exceptionally so. This year’s theme is a tribute to all time, and a Time Warp back to the 80s. The 1880s and the 1980s, in a dance-off for the ages. Dress accordingly.

So much to see. So much to do. So much to be. Come celebrate peace and creativity and the eternal urge of humans to be weird!
