THE 14TH ANNUAL HOW WEIRD STREET FAIRE
WEIRDI GRAS: A CARNIVAL OF PEACE!
Sunday April 28, 2013 | Noon to 8PM | Howard St SF
Join us for a spectacle of amazing art, music, and motion unlike anything you’ve seen before, as the greatest street faire in the galaxy takes over the streets of downtown San Francisco for a carnival of peace. The 14th annual How Weird Street Faire features 10 dance music stages, marching bands and parades, art and performances, and much more.
This year’s faire features dance music stages by Symbiosis, Muti Music, Groove Garden, Enchanted Forest, Opel, Opulent Temple, Pink Mammoth, SF House Music, Temple Nightclub, SWAG, Pulse SF, Space Shaping, Boombox Affair, Party Babas, Red Marines, Psycircle, Happy Camp, and more.
The center intersection will once again be a place to meet and relax. And Art Alley will be back with a block-long gallery of live and exhibited artwork. The How Weird vendors offer many unique and creative goods for sale, including designer clothing, jewelry, art, decorations, and more. And there will be plenty of tasty food and drinks. The faire is open to all ages.
The How Weird Street Faire is centered at Howard and 2nd Streets, in the SoMa district of San Francisco. The faire takes place from Noon to 8pm. The main entrance is at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, a short walk to MUNI, BART, the Transbay Terminal, and Caltrain Station.
For a $10 donation at the entrances to the faire, you get MAGIC BEADS, a collectible Weirdi Gras beaded necklace. The Magic Beads are worth many times their cost, with discounts and specials at all of the vendors at the faire. The Magic Beads are how people can support the faire, while getting something back in return.
This year everyone at the faire will be in costume. So come prepared. Go as yourself. Go as someone else. Go as something colorful, creative, fun, and weird. Weird is always in style.
Let the weird times roll!
You are invited to participate! Lead a parade through this year’s faire.
How Weird 2013 will be filled with the traditional Mardi Gras groups of Krewes, who will produce the many parades and music stages. If you’d like to participate, send a description of your idea to krewes at howweird.org
