In its 64th year, The North Beach Festival is considered one of the country’s original outdoor Festivals.

The event is situated in the historic North Beach District, known to locals and visitors alike as San Francisco’s Little Italy and the home of the famed beat generation. The Festival site includes numerous quaint streets in the heart of the district including Grant Avenue, Green Street, Vallejo Street and Columbus Avenue.

The event will feature over 125 arts and crafts booths, gourmet food booths, two stages of live entertainment, poetry readings, Italian street painting, beverage gardens, kids’ chalk art area and the blessing of the animals.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to participate in this San Francisco tradition which is known nationally and internationally.

Blessing of the Animals:

The animal blessing at The National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi (610 Vallejo Street) will take place from 2:00 – 3:00 both days during the festival.

Kids’ Chalk Art Area:

Let your kids creativity shine in North Beach and buy a square and street chalk at our kids chalk art area on Vallejo St. between Grant Ave. & Columbus from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM both days.
