About the Season
Powell Street Festival Society’s programming includes a season of events and partnerships with other organizations throughout the year, outside of the Festival. This expansion of programs allows us to collaborate with other organizations, artists and communities that we wouldn’t normally have the capacity to during our festival weekend. We are also able to present in other venues and areas of the city and outreach to new audiences.
Season events include visual arts exhibits, performance events, concert series and film screenings.
