SFWednesdays Free Summer Performance Series Continues Through October 20

San Francisco Mayor Breed’s Initiative to Spur Downtown Revival Features Performances in Union Square, Along the Embarcadero & Mint Plaza

27 August 2021 — San Francisco:  Artists have danced, sung, entertained and enlivened San Francisco outdoor public spaces as part of the popular  SFWednesdays ( series of FREE public performances this summer in some of the City’s most iconic outdoor public spaces. The series continues this Wednesday, September 1 (12pm – 2pm) in three simultaneous offerings at Union Square, Embarcadero Plaza and Mint Plaza.

The series of free live events is designed to reactivate downtown public spaces and reconnect San Franciscans and visitors with the city streetscape.  In an effort to support the economic recovery of the cultural and business community, the program employs local artists performing in popular venues where retail and hospitality naturally mix with day-to-day workers. Sites such as Union Square, Embarcadero Plaza, Mint Plaza and Mechanics Monument Plaza will feature music, dance and other live performances as San Francisco renews and recovers. Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences online via social media with the hashtag #sfwednesdays
