San Francisco Events | Fillmore Jazz Festival
Fillmore Jazz Festival is one of the most popular San Francisco Events of the summer.
The Fillmore Jazz Festival is a hugely popular San Francisco Event that attracts both locals and guests at Hotel Diva and other nearby Hotels in San Francisco.
About the Fillmore Jazz Festival:
The first Fillmore Jazz Festival was held in 1985, but that certainly wasn’t the first time these streets were filled with music. During World War II, jazz clubs lined Fillmore Street, and the music continued for many years. Even periods of redevelopment could not permanently silence the music, and that first Fillmore Jazz Festival helped to bring jazz back to Fillmore Street.
Each year, more than 100,000 people attend this San Francisco Event making it the largest free jazz festival on the West Coast. While the amazing music, which takes place on multiple stages, is the highlight of the Event, there is much more to the Fillmore Jazz Festival.
Both established and emerging musicians will perform, and attendees can move from stage to stage. In addition to the music, a number of vendors will be on hand. Browse the selection of fine art and handmade craft items. Delicious food is also available at this San Francisco Event, and there is something to suit every taste.
Some of the festival-goers favorite food offerings last year were the garlic crab fries, BBQ oysters, tamales, and the authentic New Orleans offerings such as gumbo. You’ll also find lots of beer and liquor tents throughout the 12 blocks of this street fair.
Grassy areas are available near most of the stages, but if you want a seat you’ll have to bring a folding chair. Fillmore Street is lined with shops, restaurants, and bars, and these businesses are open during the Fillmore Jazz Festival. Some festival attendees like to pop in to one of these businesses for a rest before heading back out to enjoy the Festival.
