San Francisco International Arts Festival

The 2020 San Francisco International Arts Festival (SFIAF) returns to Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) May 19, 2020 to May 31, 2020 with a brilliant 12-day program. Co-presented with FMCAC, SFIAF features more than 40 performances of dance, theater, music, visual arts, and more by nearly 50 ensembles and individual artists from the U.S. and nine countries.

SFIAF is a festival that celebrates diversity, multiculturalism, curiosity, and the value of others. SFIAF advocates for experiencing the cultural expressions of different societies and civilizations as a way to help understand and embrace them.

For 2020, the festival theme is "IN DIASPORA: I.D. For The New Majority." This theme expresses changing demographics in the U.S. and how to apply social justice ideas to reflect on the conditions of minority, migrant, disenfranchised, and displaced people worldwide.

Save as much as 40 percent on SFIAF tickets by purchasing $15 Early Bird tickets from Sunday, March 1, 2020 through 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31, 2020.
