Take advantage of the long holiday weekend by attending the largest free jazz festival on the west coast. The 32nd annual Fillmore Jazz Festival runs July 2-3 from 10am–6pm each day, attracting more than 100,000 visitors.

Spend Independence Day weekend enjoying the sights and sounds of incredible jazz musicians along San Francisco’s famed Fillmore Street corridor between Jackson and Eddy streets. This year’s special “In Tribute” theme means performers will be playing songs and sets honoring some of their favorite musicians who recently passed.

During the two-day festival, visitors can groove to the sounds of live music from three stages. Beyond the music, visitors can stroll down 12 blocks filled with fine art and crafts plus indulge on gourmet food and drinks.


This event blends art and soul in a unique neighborhood, with each musical act will choose to pay tribute in their own special way, playing a full set or song dedicated to their favorite of these music masters. From Prince to David Bowie, as well as Paul Bley, Maurice White, Mic Gillette, Paul Kantner, Dan Hicks and more, many of the greats will be honored appropriately. Check out the full lineup of performers below.
