Come celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, and the 18th ongoing historic counter-cultural gathering of How Weird. Once again to celebrate peace, dance in the streets, be inspired by art, shop exotic stores, make new friends and greet old ones, generate waves of joy, and expand consciousness.

For the 18th annual How Weird Street Faire, SoMa will be filled with art and performances, vendors, tasty food and drinks, and all of the colorful weirdness that San Francisco is famous for. All ages are welcome.

2017 How Weird Street Faire
Sunday, May 7, 2017 | Noon to 8 pm
Howard and 2nd Streets, San Francisco
FREE, but $15/adv ($20/door) gets you a collectible Magic Sticker

The theme for 2017 is “Summer of Weird”, honoring the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and celebrating the current generation of creative events. Bring flowers, bring costumes, bring love, bring peace.

There will be a special Summer of Love pavilion at the center intersection providing art and music from the 60s, and information. Tie-dye art and activities will be provided by Love On Haight. The California Historical Society will be providing information on the events of 1967 and the 50th anniversary events of 2017.

There will be dancing in the streets at 11 stages of world-class electronic music, spectacular performances, fantastic foods, unique vendors, visionary art, and inspiring creativity.

The Magic Sticker
When $15 (or $20) is better than “free”
At $20, the faire is an incredible deal. Plus you could save many times that amount through the many discounts and specials that make the stickers magical. Plus you get a collectible Magic Sticker that makes you look great and shows off that you’re a giving person. They come with lots of savings, exciting specials, plus many free things.

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.
