The “Live” art is located on side-streets and main streets from Orange to Osage, Lilac to Treat, 24th Street spanning from Valencia to Harrison and on 22nd to 26th street. These are public and private locations, non-profit spaces and art galleries.
There will be live entertainment on multiple stages. Local art and crafts will be interspersed between local food vendors. The Mission District is renowned for its unique and flavorful cuisine, cultural and art.
