The Historic San Francisco Mint | 88 5th St., San Francisco, 94103

Inspired by the vibrant night markets of Asia, Undiscovered SF is a free monthly Music+Art+Food Festival and curated collection of emerging artists and merchants that celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the SOMA Pilipinas district located in the heart of San Francisco’s innovative South Of Market neighborhood.

Undiscovered SF will unveil to the world the emerging culture of Filipino-Americans (and beyond) involved in music, dance, visual arts, fashion, design, retail, food, technology, social activism, and health & wellness.

This fest is 94,000+ square ft. indoors and outdoors with 15 rooms of music, food, art dance and cool stuff.

The second edition of Undiscovered is scheduled for September 15, 2017 and the organizers promise us they’ll make the event bigger, better and more organized each month.
