“SF Wednesdays” Free Outdoor Summer Concerts in Downtown

With SFWednesdaysSan Francisco is taking it to the streets with 30 performances, free and open-to-the-public, spread across 10 Wednesdays this summer in some of the City’s most iconic outdoor public spaces.

The series kicks off  Wednesday, July 14 (12pm – 2pm) — in three simultaneous offerings at Union Square, Embarcadero Plaza and Mint Plaza.

The series of free live events is designed to reactivate downtown public spaces and reconnect San Franciscans and visitors with the city streetscape. In an effort to support the economic recovery of the cultural and business community, the program employs local artists performing in popular venues where retail and hospitality naturally mix with day-to-day workers.

Sites such as Union Square, Embarcadero Plaza and Mechanics Monument Plaza (Market/Bush/Battery/1st St.) will feature music, dance and other live performances as San Francisco renews and recovers.
