SF’s Free 11-Hour Bluegrass Music Festival Returns to Polk St. for 2023
Like a mini Hardly Strictly Bluegrass taking over an entire neighborhood, Pickin’ on the Polk is a free districtwide bluegrass (and more) show in the Discover Polk Community Benefit District – April 22, 2023.
For 2023, this special Earth Day Festival will temporarily transform Polk Street into a free, all-day bluegrass (plus rock, R&B and funk) festival featuring renowned artists playing throughout the neighborhood.
Also, through a partnership with Aquarium of the Bay, the festival will offer other family-friendly conservation minded activities all day.
