Summer “Now Festival” 2018 | June 22-24

Come on out June 22-24, 2018 to co-create the best possible version of the panhandle community for one extraordinary week as the NOW Summer Festival takes over the neighborhoods around San Francisco’s iconic Panhandle (plus a few others all over the city).

Join in for free events like build-your-own-boat race, flowers crowns, and their always popular bonfire at Ocean Beach. Most of the events are free, however, some events ask for donations or have a low cover.
