All Out SF Seeks to “Show Love” to San Francisco

City Business, Nonprofit, Government and Community Groups
Unite for Weeklong Celebration
October 16 – 23 

3 October 2022 – San Francisco, CA:  Today a unique partnership of small businesses, community groups and local government announced a week-long festival of events called All Out SF ( that will celebrate all things San Francisco. The events, themed each day by an aspect of what makes the City great, are designed to inspire civic pride and support the City’s local and small business community impacted by the COVID induced economic downturn. 

“All Out for SF is a great way to bring residents together to celebrate all that San Francisco has to offer,” said Mayor Breed. “From our beautiful outdoor parks, to our incredible waterfront views, small business community, and our arts and culture, it’s important that we take time to appreciate our City while we work to make it better.”

“This is the perfect time to gather round and remind ourselves why we love our City,” says Manny Yekutiel, 32, founder of the Mission District community engagement space, Manny’s, and one of the lead organizers of All Out SF.  “After the darkness of the last few years I’m proud to have helped organize something that will bring levity and joy back to San Franciscans right when we need it.”

All Out SF is a dedicated week to celebrate San Francisco and get people involved in making it better. Citywide events will span the week ranging from beautification projects, civic conversations and advocacy, arts, culture, and community.

“All Out SF is a truly group endeavor with partner organizations across the City bonding together to make this week possible,” says Yekutiel.

All Out SF is a partnership between Refuse Refuse, Sunday Streets, Porchfest, the San Francisco Office of Small Business, Illuminate, Together SF, the San Francisco Entertainment Commission, San Francisco Public Works, and the San Francisco Office of Economic & Workforce Development, and countless small businesses and individual volunteers and activists.

According to Yekutiel, the partner organizations have curated a week of events around the City with the goal of celebrating San Francisco and giving people ways to make it better.  Each day is themed around celebrating a different aspect of San Francisco: streets, outdoors small business, arts, civics, music, beautification, and community.  Participants will be encouraged to participate in each day’s activities and take photos and tag #AllOutSF throughout the week.

“Illuminate is delighted to reinvigorate and build upon the rich tradition of live free concerts in Golden Gate Park,” said Ben Davis, founder of Illuminate.

Keeping our city clean is up to us,” said Refuse Refuse Founder Vincent Yuen. “We aim to motivate fellow San Franciscans to take actions needed to clean our streets, beautify our neighborhoods, and encourage others to join our cause. We’re excited to be a part of All Out SF with the ultimate goal of keeping San Francisco free of refuse.”

“Small businesses do so much to improve our daily lives,” said Katy Tang, Director of the San Francisco Office of Small Business. “Let’s overwhelm this incredible community with our love, especially after these challenging years.”

The themes are:
Sunday, October 16: – Phoenix Day from Sunday Streets, with streets closed to cars and open to pedestrians only for block parties around the city.

Monday, October 17:  Outdoors with people encouraged to walk the San Francisco Crosstown trail together culminating with a picnic at Land’s End.
