Immerse yourself in SF culture by checking out some of these cool events 

Do you have some free time this month but you simply don’t know what else to do?

Fill your summer with wonderful memories by attending awesome festivities. Here are some events you can participate in:

Activities in San Francisco

On the Stage

Prepare to give a round of applause to these performances:

Get Your Groove On

If you have some free time during your lunch break today and you’re close to Golden Gate Park’s Conservatory of Flowers, check out some outdoor dance performances from 11AM to 2PM. This event, called “Free Day,” is showing just in front of the Conservatory of Flowers.

All That Jazz

If you’re a lover of jazz music, then the Fillmore Jazz Festival is the perfect event for you! This is happening on July 6 and 7 from 10:00 in the morning until 6:00 in the evening along Fillmore Street. Aside from the jazz, there will also be arts and gourmet food available along the 12 blocks that make up the Fillmore Jazz Festival.


Clowning Around

If you’re more into a circus type performance, you’re in luck because the Pickle Water Free Circus featuring Circus Bella & Prescott Circus Theater is happening on July 7 at 2:00 in the afternoon at 333 Post Street. Featuring original music, this performance rejoices in the brilliance of the human spirit with its circus acts.

Home Run!

If you’re sporty with a particular love for baseball, you’re in for a treat! The San Francisco Giants have several game schedules this month at the AT&T Park. They will be going against the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 5-7, the New York Mets on July 8-10, the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 19-21, the Cincinnati Reds on July 22-24, and the Chicago Cubs on July 26-28. So start preparing your cheers for the home team!

Gustatory Delights

If you love food, whether it’s cooking or eating, you might want to learn more about it. Of course, food becomes even more delectable when sprinkled with the perfect blend of herbs and spices. What better way to learn about these wonderful natural ingredients than from expert chefs. Every Saturday of July, from 11:00 in the morning, notable chefs from the SF Chefs Preview series will talk about herbs at the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market.

Did we mention that majority of the activities above are free (of course, with the exception of the baseball games)?
