Friday, February 23, 2018 - 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm | Cost: FREE*

Dolores Park | 19th Street and Dolores Street, San Francisco, CA



Join San Francisco’s sixth annual Fauxtest (pronounced foe-test), a fake protest, rally and march to demonstrate for/against Dada (fake or nonsense) news. Originally conceived as a fake protest in response to complacency and arm chair activism, Fauxtest has evolved into a response to the fake (dada) news every one faces in these times.

Embrace hypocrisy and irony, air petty annoyances and gripes, facts, truth and nontroversy by making funny signs and marching down Valencia Street. Outlandish costumes are encouraged.
