The Polk Street Blues Festival
Date(s) & Time(s)::
Daily at 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM from September 24, 2011 until September 25, 2011
Location: Polk Street ~ Jackson to California Streets in San Francisco
For many years, San Francisco has been known for its love of the blues. Since our company already produces one of the nation's largest free Jazz Festivals on Fillmore Street, it made complete sense to us and our client, the Polk District Merchants Association, to create a free Blues Festival on upper Polk Street.Return to event list.
If people are looking to escape the crowded downtown San Francisco chain stores and want to enjoy a warm, friendly neighborhood atmosphere, Polk Street is the place. Polk Street runs from Ghirardelli Square at Beach Street at the northern end, south to Market Street near City Hall and the Civic Center. Located on the west side of upscale Nob and Russian Hills, the neighborhood is in a San Francisco micro climate relatively immune to foul weather, especially during late September.
The Festival will feature two main stages, a merchant marketplace, arts and crafts, gourmet food booths, a large family area, cafe seating areas, and much more. We expect the event will receive a huge amount of press since it is now the only free blues event in San Francisco.
Please join us and help us build this event into one of the best in the country.
