The Lower Polk Community Benefit District and Steven Restivo Event Services, Inc. are hosting the 8th Annual Polk Street Blues Festival. For many years, San Francisco has been known for its love of the blues. We are bringing the festival back to Polk Street! If people are looking to escape the crowded downtown San Francisco chain stores and want to enjoy a warm, friendly neighborhood atmosphere, Polk Street is the place. Polk Street runs from Ghirardelli Square at Beach Street at the northern end, south to Market Street near City Hall and the Civic Center. Located on the west side of upscale Nob and Russian Hills, the neighborhood is in a San Francisco micro climate relatively immune to foul weather, especially during late September. The free Festival will feature two main stages, a merchant marketplace, arts and crafts, food booths, cafe seating areas, and much more. Check back for updates on the entertainment schedule. This is a Free Festival. There is No Admission Charge.
