San Francisco Trolley Dances
Saturday - Sunday 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
4th & Channel Streets at Mission Creek Park
San Francisco Trolley Dances, now in its 15th anniversary season, is a two-day, free (with Muni fare) public performance curated by the Epiphany Dance Theater. Artists and dance ensembles are paired with specific sites along San Francisco’s Muni route, where they are invited to create an 8- to 15-minute dance piece in response to the physical environment, architecture and history of the area. This year’s route takes you from Mission Bay to SoMa. This admission-free festival has been dubbed “Art for citizens” and “A gift to the City” by past attendees, and a record of 5,000 people have joined us for a weekend of art and community. Line up for wristbands begins at 10 am. Show up early as they often have given out all of the wristbands hours in advance. Wristbands are given out on a first come, first serve basis.
How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take N Judah or the KT Ingleside.
Muni Service Notes: There are no planned service changes for this event, however, routes in the area may see minor delays or increased ridership near Mission Bay.
Potrero Hill Festival
Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Potrero Hill neighborhood will be hosting its 28th annual eponymous festival this Saturday on 20th Street between Missouri and Wisconsin streets. The Potrero Hill Festival celebrates the community with live music, food, drink and wares from local vendors, local historians, games and much more. There is something for the whole family to enjoy this weekend, so don't miss the opportunity to check out this iconic part of San Francisco.
How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take the 10 Townsend, 19 Polk or 22 Fillmore to near the event.
Muni Service Notes: The 10 will have a reroute for this event. The 19 and 22 may see minor delays or increased ridership in the area of the event.
Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Returning to Fisherman's Wharf for the sixth consecutive year, Wharf Fest showcases the historic wharf after the crowds of visitors have dissipated with a street fair atmosphere featuring over 50 booths of vendors, free activities, food and drink. The highlight of the event is surely the Clam Chowder Competition and Tastings, as Fisherman's Wharf restaurants battle it out to see whose clam chowder reigns supreme. Wharf Fest is a free event open to the public, however, tickets are required for the Clam Chowder Competition.
How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take the E Embarcadero or F Market and Wharves streetcar lines, as well as the 8 Bayshore, 19 Polk, 28 19th Avenue, 30 Stockton, 39 Coit, 47 Van Ness or the 49 Van Ness/Mission routes to near the event.
Muni Service Notes: There are no planned service changes for this event, however, routes in the area may see minor delays or increased ridership near the Wharf.
Remember that you can Muni 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.
“On Tap” gives you a heads up about the big events in town and what Muni routes and lines will get you to the party. Look for this feature to be posted usually on Thursdays for a look ahead to the weekend. Check out our Weekend Traffic & Transit Advisory for more details.
