Polk Street Blues FestivalFor many years, the city of San Francisco has been cultivating its love of blues. Now in its third year, the Polk Street Blues Festival helps to unite music lovers across the city for its much-acclaimed free blues fest on upper Polk Street. Blues aficionados from near and far venture into this historic, bay area city to witness some foot-tapping, finger-snapping tunes.
The festival showcases two main stages, featuring the musical talents of Little Brown Brother, Consonance, Jay "Buckaroo" Bonet, and more. As the music continues throughout the day, guests can also meander along the merchant marketplace, arts and crafts, gourmet food booths, and cafe seating areas for even more abounding entertainment. Not to mention, this is the only free blues event in San Francisco, making it a must-see for those looking to indulge in some infectious tunes.
Located on the west side of Nob and Russian Hills, Polk Street Blues Festival begins on Saturday, September 21st and continues until Sunday. The warm, homey atmosphere of Polk Street's neighborhood will immediately resonate with guests as they seek to escape the crowded downtown streets. Enjoy delectable bites of Italian ice, kettle corn, BBQ, and more as you dance the afternoon away.
This one-of-a-kind festival begins at 10:00am sharp, rain or shine — so make sure to bring along appropriate garb for a stomping good time. More than 30,000 people have attended in years past, so this year's festival is assured to be one of the best yet; the live performances and local foods are something you won't want to miss.
