26th Annual Potrero Hill Festival
Our Second Fall Festival Highlight comes to us courtesy ofc House, nestled up at 953 De Haro St., in San Francisco itself. This event is the crown jewel of the Potrero Hill neighborhood’s yearly events, and because of this the residents of this beautiful and famous area of the Bay Area don’t hold anything back when it comes to ensuring that their festival will stick in the minds of its attendees.
This year, the 26th consecutive Potrero Hill Festival, features all the traditional festival elements, such as live music, mouth-wateringly good food, local artists selling their original works, plenty of crafting spaces and beautiful crafts for purchase, rides for the young and the old.
The Potrero Hill Festival is a time when the normally quiet area of Potrero Hill opens itself up to the larger city and the world, when people from far flung corners of the region gather together to soak up that unique San Francisco Atmosphere in a more intimate way.
But don’t be fooled, this event traditionally attracts thousands and thousands of visitors to the area, all looking for something special, something off the beaten path (to borrow a cliche), and something that they’ll be able to look back on for years to come and say, “that was an extraordinary occasion.”
To make the 26th Potrero Hill Festival this event, the organizers have outdone themselves. This year, visitors to Potrero Hill will have a chance to see musical acts such as The Klipptones, Mj Brass Boppers, and Fei Tian. There will also be a whole series of collectible posters, a special area for kids, and a bevy of homemade food from local, Potrero Hill restaurants and food enthusiasts.
Regardless of what you come for, it will be the atmosphere that makes you stay as the generosity and care of this small relic of San Francisco past reaches out towards you with open arms. Embrace the Hill, come to the festival.
The Potrero Hill Festival takes place on Saturday, October 15th. It is a free event that runs all day long. It is also kid/dog friendly.
