The Union Street Art Festival is
one of San Francisco's largest
street fairs, held in June.

From Little Italy to Chinatown, and every enclave or neighborhood in between, the City by the Bay is a warm and welcoming gem that puts out the red carpet for residents and visitors every summer.

Street fair season actually begins in spring with the Cherry Blossom Festival in March and the Union Street Spring Celebration in April, the How Weird Street Faire in May - followed by no-holds barred street parties throughout the season!

Many neighborhoods in San Francisco have annual street festivals featuring live music, arts and crafts vendors, and street performers of all descriptions. Among the largest are the Castro Street Fair, Union Street Art Festival, North Beach Festival, and Haight-Ashbury Street Fair.

And, did we mention San Francisco Fleet Week?

Music festivals like Fillmore Jazz and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass - as well as the universally infamous for the Folsom Street Fair - make San Francisco summer street life a season-long fun fest.
