Taking the lead in this concert series is singer-songwriter Sam Johnson, whose music career began in Fisherman’s Wharf as a street performer, where he played his original music five days a week. Amidst the chaos of the bustling wharf, the seagulls and fellow street performers vying for the attention of tourists, Sam’s musical abilities flourished. Today, his soulful voice, lyrical wit, and laid-back blend of pop, rock, and reggae styles, embodying what Sam refers to as “The California Sound” have captivated audiences and earned him a record deal with Lucent Records, a division of Universal Music Group.
Along with the weekly rotation of guest performers, the FWCBD, in collaboration with the Port of San Francisco, is kicking off OysterSFest, a five-week series of star-studded pop-ups debuting on July 14. Taking the spotlight to create an authentic, only-in-Fisherman’s Wharf experience, is one of the Bay Area’s hottest pop-up sensations, Small Change Oyster Bar. Raw oysters brought in locally will be served with a champagne and shallot mignonette sauce, as well as Oysters Rockefeller, and a seafood gumbo. For cocktails, Small Change will serve micheladas with a crab claw and shrimp on the rim, perfectly paired to complement the oyster dishes on offer. The OysterSFest pop-up series will also feature local culinary creations by Friends with Benedicts and Rocky Island Oyster Co.
Historically, Fisherman’s Wharf has been one of the top tourist destinations in California with approximately 65 percent of all visitors to San Francisco and more than 16 million people visiting the Wharf annually. Yet, like every neighborhood with a diversity of retail outlets and restaurants, the Wharf experienced steep economic challenges caused by the pandemic. To aid in the revitalization of this cherished locale, the FWCBD envisions a positive transformation by invigorating public spaces and generating a renewed sense of vitality amidst the closures.
