San Francisco International Arts Festival

The San Francisco International Arts Festival (SFIAF) is a multidisciplinary performance and educational program that takes place at numerous venues in San Francisco's Mission district during the first two weeks of May. The next Festival will take place from  April 30 - May 11 2025 and in 2026 our dates are April 29 - May 10.

SFIAF presents the work of innovative artists from the Bay Area and around the world; many of the international artists make their US debut at the Festival. From 2003-24, SFIAF and more than 100 presenting partners have coordinated, presented and/or produced performances by over 700 arts ensembles from United States and 60 other countries, and presented hundreds of educational and community engagement  activities with diverse communities.

The Festival's ongoing theme is IN DIASPORA: I.D. for the New Majority and there are more details about it AT THIS LINK.
