February 1, 2024 San Francisco: San Francisco International Arts Festival (SFIAF) is excited to announce the program for the 2024 Festival. Following a highly successful return to the Mission district in June 2023, this year SFIAF:

  • Will include multiple performances focused on the socio-political issues of our time and that speak to the Festival's I.D. for the New Majority theme (see below);

  • Welcomes international touring artists back to the lineup following the pandemic with Kassandra Production from Denmark, Fishamble from the Republic of Ireland and Mykalle Bielinski from Canada;

  • Will feature 50 individual artists and ensembles giving 100 concerts, performances and presentations;

  • Include a dozen world, California or San Francisco premiere performances;

  • Feature a number of concert and events that will have free admission;

  • Builds the program by initiating new partnerships with multiple venues including music venues and visual arts organizations.

The Festival will take place in at least a dozen Mission based venues in 2024. They range in type, size and atmosphere and include: Accion Latina, Bissap Baobab, Community Music Center, Dance Mission Theater, El Rio, La Casa de los Sentidos, Medicine for Nightmares, Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, Red Poppy Art House, Studio 210, and the great 94110 outdoors!

The Festival's theme continues to be IN DIASPORA: I.D. for the New Majority. I.D. asks artists to contemplate the changing demographics of the United States of America and / or apply the ideas of social justice to reflect on the conditions of minority, migrant, disenfranchised and/or displaced peoples in other countries and continents.

Festival Director, Andrew Wood, "On the one hand, we are very excited to build the Festival back to its pre-pandemic level of activity. It takes us two years to plan each program, so this is the first time we are presenting an international component to the Festival since 2019."

He also reflected, "On the other hand, this is also an experimental year for us. We are exploring the possibilities now that we are in the Mission again. There are many potential opportunities and we are taking an informal approach, building on current and past relationships, to figuring out what the most optimum direction might be. We welcome the community to join us as we consider the options for 2025 and beyond."

The Festival Box Office will be open and Early Bird Tickets will be on-sale on February 20.
