Fillmore Jazz Festival

If you want to really experience a city, you have to be exposed to its culture. And if you’re looking for culture, there’s no better place to start than the Bay Area. San Francisco attractions showcase a culture that is perhaps the most unique, diverse, and vibrant in the country.

For a fun, free cultural event this summer, look no further than the Fillmore Jazz Festival, the largest free jazz festival on the West Coast. Attracting more than 100,000 visitors anually, the Fillmore Jazz Fest is a fusion of art, soul, music, crafts, and gourment food, spread out over twelve blocks on Fillmore Street.

Get your swing dance on at the Fillmore Jazz Fest!

This year’s festival, which takes place on July 6th and 7th (a great way to extend your Independence Day festivities), features three stages of the most talented jazz musicians and bands, and two additional entertainment areas. In these ancillary areas, you can take part in interactive cultural sessions, such as swing dance lessons, social dancing to the sounds of live DJs, dance contests, and more. Food vendors are another big part of the festival—whether its Pam’s Sweet Fish BBQ, Peter’s Kettle Corn, or J’s Coffee House that makes you lick your lips, you certainly won’t go hungry.

An all-day event (10 AM – 6 PM, rain or shine!), the Fillmore Jazz Festival offers the best of San Francisco culture right in the heart of the city.
