SF’s 47th Annual Nihonmachi Street Fair in Japantown (2021)

Japantown’s Nihonmachi Street Fair returns in 2021. Last year the Nihonmachi Street Fair was cancelled for the very first time in its history, but this year it’s back with multiple events on a few weekends.

The biggest change from previous years is that in order to support the local Japantown restaurant scene, there will be no food fest for 2021, and you’ll be encouraged to try out all of the neighborhood restaurants.
