Meet The Crossing at East Cut, a giant new community space located in SF’s Transbay neighborhood. It kicked off last year with a beer garden, food truck park, soccer fields, and a giant ground mural on the block between Howard, Main, Folsom, and Beale Streets.
These days, The Crossing has some excellent events on the calendar. Here are some of our favorites coming up:
- October 7 (7pm) – Comedy at the Crossing – watch stand-up comedy in The Crossing’s outdoor beer garden.
- October 16 (4pm) – Glassy Arts Festival & Marketplace – watch live glass blowing and art demos, and pick up a gift while you’re at it.
- October 21 (6-9pm) – Azucar Fridays – Learn bachata dance moves and then enjoy Latin beats in the beer garden.
- October 29 (11am) – Outdoor Yoga Under the Palms – An energizing yoga-based workout plus one non-alcoholic drink from the bar ($5 tickets).
In addition to these events, you can enjoy The Crossing’s year-round outdoor cinema, beer garden, food trucks, work space, public art, and fitness spaces on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
The 3.5 acre site is due to be turned into housing in mid-2023 under the Office of Community Development and Infrastructure. But until then, the Office hast trusted East Cut Landing Partners (ECLP) to spearhead a variety of activities in the area. The project is part of Mayor Breed’s Downtown Recovery Plan, which aims to speed up the downtown area’s economic recovery and bring more traffic to local businesses.
The space is meant to be a safe area for people to enjoy what the city has to offer outdoors. It’s available for fitness uses Monday-Friday from 7am-7pm. It’s open for other activities on Fridays 3pm-9pm, Saturdays 11am-9pm, and Sundays 11am-8pm.
Find The Crossing at the former Temporary Transbay Terminal site, located at 200 Folsom St. in San Francisco.
