Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival
Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The San Francisco Center for the Book's 14th Annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival returns this Sunday in Potrero Hill. The event offers hands-on printmaking as well as demonstrations, 50 arts and crafts vendors, an art gallery and more. The highlight of the event is the use of a seven-ton steamroller from 1924 and a 12-ton steamroller from 1916 to create super-sized prints. All prints sold will benefit the San Francisco Center for the Book.
How to Get There on Muni: The 10 Townsend, 19 Polk and 55 16th Street routes will take riders to the event.
Muni Service Notes: The 10 and 19 will have reroutes. The 10, 19 and 55 may see delays due to increased ridership and traffic in the area of the event.
Friday to Sunday, various times
Fans can spend a day at the ballpark when the Giants host a three-game series this weekend against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Giants' post-season hopes may be dashed, but they can still play the role of spoiler as Arizona looks to unseat the Dodgers at the top of the division standings.
How to Get There on Muni: The E Embarcadero, K Ingleside/T Third and N Judah lines as well as the 8 Bayshore, 10 Townsend, 30 Stockton, 45 Union/Stockton and 47 Van Ness routes will take you close to the ballpark.
Muni Service Note: The E, K/T, N, 8, 10, 30, 45 and 47 may see delays and crowding due to increased ridership.
Reminder: N Judah Bus Substitutions
For the second of five planned weekends, N Judah rail service will be substituted by bus shuttles between Ocean Beach and Duboce & Church for construction on the Inner Sunset Streetscape Improvement Project. N trains will continue to run in the Muni Metro Subway to Caltrain during these times. For details, check out our service alert page.
Reminder: J Church Stop Changes at Balboa Park
Due to construction for the Balboa Park Station Area and Plaza Improvement Project, the J Church Line will continue to serve alternate stops on San Jose Avenue until the fall. For details, please visit our Green Light Rail Center Track Replacement Project page.
