For the Community, Embracing All Communities

The Nihonmachi Street Fair considers itself the original “melting pot” of street fairs, with many aspects of Asian-Pacific American life—and San Francisco’s cultural life—expressed through performance, tradition, art, music, food, and community outreach and service. 

Continually evolving to reflect the city it celebrates while staying true to its original idea: to use this event as a platform to mentor Asian Pacific American youths and foster their leadership and communication skills through volunteerism and community service. The Fair is produced, staffed, and organized by volunteers, thus providing practical, hands-on experience in collaboration, entrepreneurship, and problem solving.

This year's Fair will be held on the weekend of August 3 & 4 from 11am - 6pm in San Francisco's Japantown (on Post Street between Laguna and Fillmore Streets). Bring the entire family even your fur baby for 2 full days of activities, performances and just good fun!

The Nihonmachi Street Fair is proud of its 46 year history in serving the community through education, service, and youth mentorship. Nihonmachi Street Fair is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization. Tax ID: 94-3088515

San Francisco is frequently cited as one of America's most pet-friendly cities, especially dogs. It's a city with family and dog friendly experiences…and where dogs out number children. We welcome you to enter your pooch in our 8th Annual Doggie World Parade & Pageant.
