Dull is a word that doesn’t exist in San Francisco’s vocabulary. The City by the Bay always has something going on whether it’s street festivals, art shows, concerts… you name it, San Francisco has it.

Now that the weather is warmer and the days are a little brighter, the City is hosting multiple outdoor events for San Franciscans to enjoy.
