For many years, San Francisco
has been known for its love of the blues. Since our company already produces one of the nation's largest
free Jazz Festivals on Fillmore Street,
it made complete sense to us and our
client, the Polk District Merchants
Association, to create a free Blues
Festival on upper Polk Street.
If people are looking to escape the crowded downtown San Francisco
chain stores and want to enjoy a warm, friendly neighborhood
atmosphere, Polk Street is the place. Polk Street runs from Ghirardelli
Square at Beach Street at the northern end, south to Market Street near
City Hall and the Civic Center. Located on the west side of upscale
Nob and Russian Hills, the neighborhood is in a San Francisco micro climate
relatively immune to foul weather, especially during late September.
The Festival will feature two
main stages, a merchant marketplace, arts and crafts, gourmet food
booths, a large family area, cafe
seating areas, and much more. We
expect the event will receive a huge
amount of press since it is now the only
free blues event in San Francisco.
Please join us and help us build this
event into one of the best in the country.
