34th Annual Haight-Ashbury Street Fair

Where: Haight between Ashbury and Masonic

When: Sun., June 12, 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: The historic Haight-Ashbury district, site of the Summer of Love more than 40 years ago, hosts a giant celebration every year on the second Sunday of June. Although the area is a bit more gentrified now, this neighborhood bash reminds that it can still be a place of peace, love, and happiness. The six blocks on Haight between Stanyan and Masonic will feature eclectic arts and crafts and, more importantly to some of us at SFoodie, 20 food booths with assorted cuisines and street food. There are four BBQ vendors, roasted corn, panini, Japanese, Thai, Venezuelan arepas from Pica Pica Maize Kitchen, and of course, Ben & Jerry's. A multitude of music bands will provide live entertainment on three stages, plus a children's area with acrobats, a puppet theatre, ice cream eating contest, and Monkey Butts (you have to attend to find out what that is).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
