Potrero Hill Festival
Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The 30th annual Potrero Hill Festival takes place this Saturday in the iconic eponymous neighborhood (on 20th Street between Wisconsin and Missouri streets) beginning at 11 a.m. The event celebrates the Potrero community and features local food vendors, homegrown artists, musicians, historians and much more. Benefits from the Festival will support the Potrero Hill Neighborhood House (NABE), a community resource that provides programs designed to help the residents of the Potrero Hill community.
How to Get There on Muni: The 10 Townsend and 19 Polk routes will take riders close to the event.
Muni Service Notes: The 10 Townsend will have a reroute while both the 10 and the 19 routes may see minor delays or increased ridership during the event..
Corgi Con 2019
Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Corgis are longer than they are tall, mounted atop stubby little legs that don't look up to the task of supporting their weight, and hundreds of them will take over a portion of Ocean Beach during Corgi Con this Saturday. Dog and human alike will enjoy a beach day on the northern end of Ocean Beach near the Cliff House, partaking in events ranging from a costume contest, an obstacle course and a good old fashioned footrace.
How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take the 5 Fulton, 18 46th Avenue, 31 Balboa, 38 Geary or the 38R Geary Rapid routes to near the event.
Muni Service Notes: There are no planned service changes for this event, though corgi ridership may be increased on beach-bound routes.
Remember that you can take Muni for the entire day for a single $5 fare. The new $5 Day Pass, available on MuniMobile®, is part of Muni’s recent fare changes. The pass is intended to encourage a safe, convenient way to pay your fare and quickly board Muni vehicles, which reduces overall travel time for everyone. The $5 Day Pass is Muni bus, rail and historic streetcars only.
