Noise Pop is excited to announce the return of the fifth annual 20th Street Block Party taking place Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in San Francisco’s Mission District. Similar to last year, the event will once again benefit 19th Street neighbors Mission Language and Vocational School (MLVS).
The free neighborhood celebration will bring an eclectic mix of music and entertainment, food and drink, and art to multiple stages along 19th and 20th Streets. In 20th Street Block Party tradition, the music will include some of the best in the Bay Area and beyond. Past performances have included Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Mac Demarco, Two Gallants, Nick Waterhouse, Andrew St. James, and more. Last year’s Block Party saw 20,000 people in attendance and featured Chicano Batman, Miami Horror, Boulevards, Hazel English, and more.
This year’s culinary offerings will be carefully curated to represent a wide array of the Mission’s best flavors. Among the 2016 culinary highlights were Flour + Water, Burma Bear, Farmhouse Kitchen Thai, Universal Café, and many more. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements on this year’s program—including music, food, family-friendly Art Row activities, nonprofit vendors and partners, and more—in the coming months.
Admission to this event is free, but donations are suggested. The event is open to the public, and food and drink will be available for purchase. VIP tickets will also be available.
