Dr. George Davis Senior Center | 1753 Carroll Ave, SF, CA


Bayview Hunters Point’s longest-running annual event, the Black Cuisine Festival, was created to highlight culinary talents passed through generations.

The Black Cuisine Festival shares delectable food rooted in African American tradition, bringing people together for a little taste of soul.

2019 Black Cuisine Festival
Saturday, March 2, 2019 | 11 am – 6 pm
1753 Carroll Avenue @ 3rd Street, SF (Bayview)
FREE, but bring along some cash for food purchases

The free event, presented by Bayview Senior Services, will feature live music, vendor booths, a Kid’s zone, and a dazzling variety of food venues. Some of the offerings include fried chicken, catfish, oxtails, ribs, links, black-eyed peas, red beans and rice, greens, yams, mac & cheese, cornbread, sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, pound cake and other soulful delights–all of which will be sure to rival mama and grandmas’ down-home cooking.

Black Cuisine Festival will also give soul food novices and chefs an opportunity to share their culinary talents by entering the Soul Food Cooking contest; winners will receive cash prizes. Last year’s festival drew more than 2,000 attendees and they anticipate that number increasing this year.
