Howard & Main (SoMa) | Howard St. and Main St., San Francisco, CA



On May 6, 2018, a unique gathering of the tribes will occur in downtown San Francisco for a Celebration of Peace for The Disco Ball. It will be a parody of the 1970s, and a very groovy time. There will be dancing in the streets at 10 stages of world-class electronic music, spectacular performances, fantastic foods, unique vendors, visionary art, and inspiring creativity.

The heart of the emerging new downtown of San Francisco, at the intersection of Howard & 2nd Streets, will be the center of festivities, surrounded by thousands of people in colorful costumes.

2018 How Weird Street Faire
Sunday, May 6, 2018 | Noon to 8 pm
Howard and 2nd Streets, San Francisco
$11.11 early bird (Feb 6-11) /  $15 Adv / $20 door

Event Cost Update: Please note that in 2018 for the first time, paid tickets are required for entry. In the past the faire was free with a suggested donation.

The theme for 2018 is “The Disco Ball Inferno”, looking back at a time of high weirdness. It was a simpler time, a funkier time, a more colorful time. It was a time of bellbottoms and big collars. A time of big cars and bigger hair. A time when lava lamps lit the land, and rocks were pets.

This faire is dedicated to all the generations of people that have danced together, and taken their dance to the weird level.

How Weird is a menagerie of attractions, including a world renowned music festival featuring 10 stages of different styles of dance music, an open air art festival filling an expanded Art Alley, a unique market of interesting vendors and delicious food, and a platform for performers of every type.

This year, the four main entrances to the faire are at Howard and 1st Streets, at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, Folsom and 2nd Streets, and at Mission and 2nd Streets. We recommend taking public transportation to the faire.

The How Weird Street Faire is located a short walk from Market Street and the Montgomery BART station, as well as Caltrains Station, Transbay Terminal, and many MUNI lines.
