SF’s Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2022 (May 7 – October 29)
A beloved Father’s Day tradition celebrating the creativity of North America’s indigenous peoples, the 19th Annual Native Contemporary Arts Festival showcases a diverse program of Native music, dance, spoken word performances and crafts.
The family-friendly festival opens and closes with sacred invocations by songstress L Frank and features amazing magician Tamaka; activist and rap artist Frank Waln; spoken word with Tanaya Winder Mountain Ute and Duck Water Shoshone; singer-songwriter Jeremy Goodfeather; and ever-popular All Nations Singers and Medicine Warrior Dancers .
The program is emcee’d by comedian Charlie Ballard, and coordinated by Janeen Antoine.
All young-at-heart creatives are invited to participate in art activities with artists Christy Galbadon with hand drilling beads, Kanyon Sayers-Roods making talking sticks, Celeste Aguilar making beaded bracelets, and Jeffrey Martinez making stamped prints.
