Yerba Buena Night is back on October 8 from 6-10pm, promising dozens of free performances all across Downtown SoMa. The event’s 10th edition will be bigger than ever before with singers, musicians, local theater troupes, dance troupes, light sculptures, and even a sound garden at both indoor and outdoor venues.
Performers include singer-songwriter Jaleh; local theater groups Word for Word and the San Francisco Neo-Futurists; Theater Flamenco; Hope Mohr Dance; Nicole Maria Dance; aerialists, dancers, and circus performers; and country, rock and jazz singers. Rumor has it that there will also be a giant inflatable light display and sound garden. Visit the website for the full lineup.
SoMa’s Yerba Buena neighborhood will come alive at venues such as Jessie Square, Yerba Buena Lane, Yerba Buena Gardens,111 Minna Gallery, Executive Order, American Bookbinders Museum, The Museum of the African Diaspora, Fly Trap restaurant, and various other performance spaces and restaurants. Guests are encouraged to patronize local businesses throughout the neighborhood and make a night of it!
Yerba Buena Night comes to us courtesy of the Yerba Buena Community Development District (YBCBD). “After two years of cultural stagnancy without live music, dance, or theater performances, this is a great way to reconnect artists with audiences,” said Richard Ciccarone, Director of Branding, Activation and Marketing for YBCBD.
After two years off due to the pandemic, Yerba Buena Night’s 10th edition is not to be missed! Stay tuned as we learn more details and be sure to save the date for October 8 from 6-10pm.
