Four entrances to Faire in 2022
This year, the four entrances to the faire are at Howard and 1st Streets, at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, Folsom and 2nd Streets, and at Mission and 2nd Streets. We strongly recommend taking public transportation to the faire. The How Weird Street Faire is located a short walk from Market Street and the Montgomery BART station, as well as Caltrains Station and many MUNI lines. The new Transbay Terminal is located right next to the faire.

How Weird Street Faire’s nine stages will feature world-class electronic music, played on some of the world’s best sound systems. Cutting-edge artists from across the Bay Area and the world will provide an unforgettable dance experience. For 2022, there will be music stages by Bootie Mashup & Heavy Petting Zoo, Opulent Temple, Opel & Opulent Chill, Muti Music & Northern Nights, Symbiosis & Raindance, Plur Alliance & So Stoked, Solid Gold Jacuzzi, Red Marines & Secret Psychedelica, Mountain Lion Hi Fi, and Beats and Rhymes. Additional artists will be announced on our social media closer to the date of the Faire.

Art Alley will showcase the visual arts, with live and exhibited artwork, interactive pieces, and artists selling their works. Patrons can stroll the legendary open air gallery, and be inspired by the abundance of creativity in an expanded space.

How Weird Marketplace will be filled with vendors from around the world selling unique goods. From clothing to art, jewelry, and accessories, Marketplace offers a unique shopping experience

Food trucks and local restaurants will provide a wide variety of food and drinks for sale.

A world-renowned experience, How Weird Street Faire has been named one of the 10 Best Cultural Festivals in America by USA Today in 2019, and awarded SF Weekly’s Best of SF Award for “street fair that continues to improve and blow our minds” in 2018. S.F. Chronicle has declared: “How Weird festival celebrates everything that makes SF special.”
