Our 2015 season begins on July 8, 2015

This season of People in Plazas FREE public concert series will bring live music to thousands of workers, residents and visitors to San Francisco. We have added two new venues, Embarcdero Square near the Golden Gateway  and Civic Center / Joseph Alioto Performing Arts Plaza across from City Hall. The summer music festival promises more that 130 concerts. In addition we also program McCoppin Hub Plaza where we will have music, movies, dance, artisans and more!  Join us!
