HOW WEIRD STREET FAIRE 2012
Posted by Xeno on May 7, 2012
The 13th annual How Weird Street Faire will have 13 stages of world-class music and performances spread throughout 13 city blocks. This year’s theme is Time, in honor of 2012. Come join thousands of people in colorful costumes, as we celebrate peace and the 13 moons we’ve all been waiting for. All ages are welcome. Costumes are highly encouraged.
New this year is a performance stage hosted by members of Vau de Vire Society, a Beat Box Poetry stage on Natoma Street, and an entire alley of live and exhibited art on Minna Street.
The How Weird Street Faire features vendors from around the world with unique and creative goods for sale. Come prepared to find some special clothing, jewelry, art, decorations, hula hoops, and much more throughout the faire. And there will be plenty of food and drinks. If you get a Magic Sticker, you can enjoy the many discounts and specials throughout the faire. …
here is a requested donation of $10 for the How Weird Street Faire. The full donation buys a Magic Sticker that is potentially worth many times that amount, with discounts at the faire bars and after parties, as well as many of the vendors. The Magic Sticker is how people can support the faire, while getting something back in return.
The faire takes place from Noon to 8pm. The main entrance is at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, where you’ll find complimentary bike parking. It is only two blocks from the Montgomery BART station on Market Street, and near many MUNI lines. The faire’s location, in the heart of the San Francisco SoMa district, is a short walk to Yerba Buena Gardens and the emerging museum district, as well as the Transbay Terminal and Caltrain Station….
