9th annual: How Weird Street Faire!
Sunday May 4, 2008 — 11:11 am to 5:55 pm — San Francisco, Earth
What a great day! Thanks to everyone who supported the Weird. Pictures!
EXODUS! WE’RE BACK AND MOVING TO A NEW LOCATION!
The How Weird Street Faire is moving 10 blocks down Howard Street, but continues to bring together a diverse assortment of electronic music styles by collaborations of collectives and artists working together for a celebration of peace. You are invited to join us in starting a new era!
There will be nine stages of music during the day, seven city blocks filled with art and celebration, food and vendors from around the world selling unique and creative wares, non-profit organizations to educate and inspire you, performance artists and thousands of people in colorful costumes dancing in the streets, and the opportunity to meet members of your extended family and forge lasting connections.
The day is open to all ages, with requested donation of $10 (or $5 in costume).
This year, there will be a special Community Action Zone during the day inside Temple, located at 540 Howard Street (within the faire site). Technology that fosters peace and sustainability will be exhibited, and there will be talks and interactive workshops. So come inside from 1:00pm to 4:30pm to be inspired. Visit the Temple By Day page for more information.
Bring your used electronics to Green Citizen for recycling, located at Howard near 2nd Street.
Visit the DJ Game Show to test your skills and enjoy a fun music experience.
For information about vending, see the Vending page.
