San Francisco Arts & Culture
Street festivals, food from the four corners of the culinary universe, destination museums and cutting-edge art, musical events for every ear, world-class shopping, coastline hikes through the fog — it's all here.
Street and Music Festivals
From Outside Lands to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, the J-Pop Summit to the Asian Heritage Street Festival, San Francisco stays outside year-round. Music festivals, street fairs, and cultural celebrations are an easy way to experience the city and its diverse communities.
USF’s campus is within walking distance to the de Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, a short bus ride to SFMOMA, the Exploratorium, and the Asian Art Museum, or an easy drive to world-class institutions in Berkeley, Oakland, Palo Alto, and San Jose.
When our students aren’t cheering for the Dons, they’re grabbing tickets to watch a variety of professional sports teams around the Bay Area, including: the Golden State Warriors, San Francisco Giants, Oakland A’s, San Jose Sharks, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers.
