The Bay Bridged Presents: The 2009 Rock Make Street Festival!
August 6, 2009
Written by The Bay Bridged
The Bay Bridged is proud to co-present the second annual Rock Make Street Festival, returning to San Francisco’s Mission District for a free all day local music and crafts street fair on Sunday, August 23rd. Last summer, thousands of San Franciscans sampled some of the best Bay Area arts, crafts and music at the first Rock Make event. This year, Rock Make returns to once again celebrate the Bay Area arts community’s innovative blend of DIY spirit and artistic creativity, with a festival that retains all of the best qualities of last year’s event while going even bigger and better.
Like last year, the street festival will be held on Treat Avenue between 17th St and 18th St and will feature performances by over a dozen great Bay Area bands on two stages. Alongside the music, local independent handicrafts, visual arts, and fashion vendors will be selling their wares, allowing patrons the opportunity to see a rare meeting of the flourishing local crafts and music communities.
