Comedy, trivia nights, fitness events, and more!
Meet The Crossing at East Cut, a giant new community space located in SF’s Transbay neighborhood. It kicked off this 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:
- Friday, April 1 – Trade Zoom for Zumba and April Fools’ Comedy
- Saturday, April 2 – Watercolor in Bloom and Rollin’ Through The Crossing (roller disco)
In addition to these events, you can enjoy The Crossing’s 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.
“This year has shown us just how essential access to outdoor space is for the well-being of our communities and the overall development of our city,” said Mayor Breed. “This beautifully designed site will provide a safe and engaging space for both community members and visitors of our city to get outside and enjoy the vibrancy of our downtown core.”
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.
