Thanks to all who participated in the 19th How Weird Street Faire!

And thanks to San Francisco for staying weird and wonderful!

How Weird 2018

The center art this year was the
ZOA sculpture from Chromaforms Art Collective.

Thanks for bringing the weirdest disco ball in the world to How Weird!


Here is an interactive 360 video of How Weird 2018

(Click on the video and scroll around to see in all directions.)


In the not too far away future, we shall harken back to a simpler time, a funkier time, a more colorful time. It was a time of bellbottoms and big collars. A time of big cars and bigger hair. A time when lava lamps lit the land, and rocks were pets. Remember when fun was really fun?

The Fantastic Towering Disco Ball and the Far Out Funky Inferno.
Can You Dig It? It’s Out of Sight!

After 9,777 years of civilization, we all need weird.
Coming to a street faire near you!*

Join us as we gather the tribes once again to celebrate peace, dance together in the streets, be inspired by art, shop exotic stores, make new friends and greet old ones, generate waves of joy, and expand our consciousness.

The theme for 2018 is a parody of the 1970s,
a time of high weirdness and much dancing.

Feel the funk! Be the boogie! Get groovy!
