With summer coming to an end there appears to be no slow down in events and things to do in our beautiful Bay Area! We’ve selected a few of our favorites for your consideration.
GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL
September 9th — 10th
Indulge for a good cause! Enjoy sweet and savory samples from wineries, breweries, to ice cream, and of course, chocolate. All profits from this decadent event go to Project Open Hand, an organization that provides meals to seniors and the critically ill. More Information on their website!
OKTOBERFEST BY THE BAY
October 1st, 2017
Experience San Francisco’s take on Oktoberfest with music, singing, dancing, and the very best in German food and drink! This event sells out fast, so reserve your tickets in advance and visit Pier 48 for some brews and views.
CASTRO STREET FAIR
October 1st, 2017
There is no better way to experience San Francisco’s beloved Castro than with amazing food, multiple stages of live entertainment, and shopping local merchants. This annual neighborhood celebration is not to be missed! Additional details on their website.
FLEET WEEK SAN FRANCISCO
October 2nd — 9th, 2017
The festival center is located on the Marina Green and the whole City gets to experience the sights and sounds of this spectacular week! From viewing the Blue Angel air show to touring the docked Navy ships, celebrating our service men and women in style is a San Francisco tradition. You’re approved for landing on their website for more information.
HARDLY STRICTLY BLUEGRASS
October 6th — 8th
Quoted by SF Gate as one of the things you “must do before you die” this free music festival is not to be missed. What once was solely a bluegrass festival has since expanded to include performers from all genres. Grab your layers (Karl the Fog often makes a visit) and head on down to Golden Gate Park to enjoy this fantastic music fest!
THE RENEGADE CRAFT FAIR
November 11th — 12th
The self-proclaimed world’s largest curated showcase of independent craft and design features an impressive mix of unique wearable and home items from local artists. After taking in some beautiful bay views, step inside Fort Mason to peruse some finely-crafted goods.
