Since 2015, the Tenderloin Museum has championed the resilient and inspiring history of the Tenderloin through its exhibitions, while engaging our unique community through cultural and educational programs.
The Tenderloin embodies the quintessential spirit of San Francisco—the outsider, the pioneer, the advocate. As we commemorate our fifth anniversary, we honor those same qualities in our neighbors today—and despite current hardships, it remains our mission to empower and unite our neighborhood through civic-centered programs and exhibitions.
On Saturday, September 12th, from 10am-4pm, the Tenderloin Museum will celebrate our fifth anniversary with an outdoor Community Day, where we’ll invite mask-wearing locals to safely experience an outdoor Shelter in Place gallery show, a family-centric giveaway with the Asian Art Museum, and to view eclectic performances from CounterPulse, Skywatchers, Larkin Street Youth Services, and Aunt Charlie’s.
These Saturdays, which are part of a new series called Play Streets, will offer car-free city blocks, encouraging residents with cabin fever to enjoy the outdoors in a safe, joyful setting. Each Saturday, a city street in the Tenderloin will be closed to traffic from 10 am to 4 pm. After months of remaining isolated indoors, streets will close to cars and open to Tenderloin residents—with diverse programs, surprise performances, and family activities that emphasize COVID-19-safety and community support.
The wellbeing of guests is our greatest concern. We will limit the number of attendees on the block, require mask-wearing and social distancing, provide multiple hand sanitizer stations, and sanitize all shared equipment and seating after each use. We invite our community to celebrate and to be well!
**Covid-19 safety information**
All public health guidelines must be adhered to while we continue to navigate Covid-19. On the block, everyone is required to wear a covering (either a bandana, mask, or scarf) over the nose and mouth. We will ask each of you to maintain physical distance of six feet from those you do not live with, and suggest you have hand sanitizer on-hand. Public restrooms are also likely not going to be an option.
