The San Francisco International Arts Festival celebrates the unique spirits of the human being by bringing together a global community of artists and patrons. Their mission is to bring together world-renowned artists, performers and musicians to the Bay Area, either through collaborative works with local artists or simply performances during the annual event. Over the past 12 years, more than 150 art ensembles from the Bay Area have joined the cause, with another 100 partners presents, coordinating and producing shows.
