The Mission Youth Arts Festival // SF


On Saturday, March 10, 2018, the Mission District’s Potrero del Sol Park becomes a high energy stage for some of the neighborhood’s finest youth performing groups, and young and old alike are invited to this free, outdoor festival that celebrates the voices and talents of young artists.

Presented by Dance Brigade’s Dance Mission Theater, the event, the only one of its kind in the Mission District, features performances by the following!

Dancers and taiko players of GRRRL Brigade, the sizzling samba drummers of Loco Bloco, the folkloric dancers of Cuicacalli, the bouyant musicians of Mariachi Juvenil La Mision, the martial artists of Abada Capoeira SF, the hip hop dancers of ODC Youth Program, the spoken word poets of Youth Speaks, Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts World Music and Dance, and more.

Audience members will have a chance to try a few moves during a mini dance class during the intermission, and local youth groups will be on hand to provide information about their programs and youth services.

The event stakes a claim for arts organizations and young people still based in the Mission despite growing gentrification and change.

The event is free for all ages, and picnics are encouraged.
