Known around the world and beloved in the city of San Francisco, the North Beach Festival is a summertime tradition. Now in its 62nd year, the community event features a diverse array of attractions and activities, all set amidst the quaint streets of this historic neighborhood. Shop for a unique souvenir from more than 125 arts and crafts booths, which are all part of the juried fine arts competition. Visit the beer and wine gardens for refreshments throughout the day, and admire the colorful Italian street paintings and chalk art. Indulge in gourmet festival food, and don't miss the highlight of the weekend – the blessing of the animals (from 2 pm to 3 pm both days of the event). There will also be two stages of live entertainment, featuring local bands and up-and-coming artists. The North Beach Festival is free to attend, and takes place from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12. Are you planning a summertime getaway to the Bay Area?
