For the 14th annual How Weird Street Faire, SoMa will be filled with art and performances, vendors, tasty food and drinks, and all the colorful weirdness that San Francisco is famous for under the 2013 theme “Weirdi Gras.” All ages are welcome, and costumes are highly encouraged.

There will be 10 stages of world-class electronic music, a centerpiece of Jesters, overlooking the center park at Howard & 2nd Streets.

In 2013, the How Weird Street Faire is participating in 2013 Bay Area National Dance Week and there will be a special flash mob at 4pm at the brand new Marching Band Stage, next to the center intersection.

To celebrate Weirdi Gras, there will be five marching bands at the faire, including Blue Bone Express, Loyd Family Players, North Beach Brass Band, TrashKan Marchink Band, and Fanfare Zambaleta. They will be parading throughout the day and performing at the Marching Band Stage.
