SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF.— Journey to a land beyond reality in the annual strange, odd and interesting extravaganza of weird! The Critic holds up a mirror. The Trickster holds up a window. The Magician turns it into a door. And the Weirdo jumps through it. Howard & 2nd Street will be transformed into a Paxorium (place of peace) for this event.

Filling nine city blocks with thousands of people in colorful costumes dancing in the streets, eight stages of world-class music, art and performances, a tasty selection of food and drinks, non-profit organizations to educate and inspire, and all the weirdness that San Francisco is famous for, happens on this one day event. All ages are welcome, and costumes are highly encouraged.

Such are the mythical realms of the journey to a land filled with creative, peace-loving and simply weird people who take to the streets of San Francisco to express themselves annually.

San Francisco's street fair transforms the city into a celebration of peace and creativity, as thousands of people journey to the Mythical Realms of Howard Street. Each year a new theme brings new talent and creativity.)

The How Weird Street Faire features more than 60 vendors from around the world with unique clothing, jewelry, art, decorations, hula hoops, and more.

Diverse genres of electronic music, in past years have included Live Electronica, Dubstep, Electro, Breaks, Psytrance, House, Techno, Drum & Bass, World Beat, and music stages produced by collaborations of local collectives and music organizations.
