The How Weird Street Faire is centered at Howard and 2nd Streets, in the SoMa district of San Francisco. The Faire is a project of World Peace Through Technology Org, a non-profit organization. that began in 2000 with 1,000 people and has grown to an anticipated 20,000 participants this year.

The faire takes place from Noon to 8pm. The main entrance is at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, a short walk to MUNI, BART, the Transbay Terminal, and Caltrain Station. The center intersection will once again be a place to meet and relax. And Art Alley will be back with a block-long gallery of live and exhibited artwork. The faire is open to all ages.

This year's faire features dance music stages by Symbiosis, Muti Music, Groove Garden, Enchanted Forest, Opel, Opulent Temple, Pink Mammoth, SWAG, Temple Nightclub, SF House Music, Pulse SF, Space Shaping, PK Sound, The Boombox Affair, Party Babas, Psycircle, Red Marines, Happy Camp, and more.

National Dance Week Flash Mob: This year How Weird Street Fair is partnering with National Dance Week. There will be a National Dance Week flash mob in the Main Intersection at Howard and Second Street. Check back for the start time and details. If you like organized dance, learn the National Dance Week Flash Mob Choreography on the video and start off the dancing with your group of dancers. If you like to dance in your own unique way, then just begin with the music and show us what you've got in the "Weirdi Gras" Way.
