Get ready to get weird at the 24th annual How Weird Street Faire in downtown SF on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2023. How Weird includes a daytime dance party, a vibrant marketplace, and an outdoor gallery of cutting-edge visionary art.
All guests are requested to wear costumes, which can range from “the best version of yourself,” to something you’d expect to see at Halloween. This year’s theme is “Time Travel: Stargate,” so a historic or alien-adjacent costume is a safe bet if you can’t decide. Have fun with it and express yourself in whatever way feels good. In general, the sky is the limit and the weirder the better.
The faire will feature 9 areas of world-class electronic music, representing diverse genres and styles on some of the highest-quality sound systems. The 2023 faire will feature stages by MiMOSA, Kowta & friends, Dov1, DJ Dragonfly, Iterate, Aaya, Cavemen, Nunya, Guidance, and Singe.
How Weird hasn’t released the full list of food and craft vendors yet, but if previous years are any indication you’ll be sure to find a wonderful mix of food, drink, clothing, crafts, and other unique objects.
The street fair is a ticketed event with ticket options at $35 now and $40 at the gate. Kids under 12 will get in for free but must be accompanied by an adult.
The How Weird Street Faire will go from 12pm-8pm on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2023. The event spans several blocks but is centered at the intersection of Howard and Second Streets in San Francisco.
