Free Events

16th Annual Urban Youth Arts Festival
July 21, 2012 (1p-6p)
Precita Park (Precita Ave. & Alabama St.), SF

– Live Music & DJs
– Youth skate competition
– Skate deck painting
– Stencil Station

The Precita Eyes Mural Center puts on the event. Every year 200 to 300 people show up and organizers think that it’s a good way to keep kids out of trouble–given the 200 cans of aerosol paint that are used to make art on the walls, instead of tags on public spaces.

Extra incentive: the best art pieces are kept and shown throughout the year at galleries. The city’s Parks & Rec Dept even gave them their blessing this year by absorbing the cost of the permits.

Free Food Truck Sunday
Grub for free at any of 8 food trucks at the SOMA StrEat Food Park this Sunday! (sf.funcheap.com )
