SF’s New “Bloomtown” Giant Inflatable Dahlias + Scavenger Hunt

Join us on Union Street to discover the magic of Bloomtown –  This multi-layered, interactive art experience is taking place on Union Street, between Steiner and Gough from September 15 to November 15, 2021

In partnership with Building 180, SF Parks Alliance is bringing eight large-scale inflatable dahlias and multiple never before seen murals, repurposed from the temporary Presidio Field Hospital, and more to the Union Street corridor.

September 15 – November 15, 2021
Union Street btwn Steiner and Gough, SF

Placed on rooftops and throughout storefronts, these installations aim to inspire curiosity and joy for visitors of all ages, while also encouraging the rediscovery of the corridor’s local merchants, restaurants and retail.
