After taking a couple of years off, San Francisco’s kick off Street Fair is coming back for 2022! Taking place every year on the first weekend in June, the Union Street Festival brings a assortment of food trucks, food & drink vendors, live music, carnival rides, entertainment and lots of great merchants to Cow Hollow for a 2-day event. The Annual event has been taking place for over 40 years, with the inaugural festival taking place in 1976.
What to Expect

How to Get to the Union Street Festival
Parking in Cow Hollow and The Marina can be difficult on normal weekends, so you can expect it will be a lot worse during the festival. If you aren’t able to find a lucky spot within walking distance of the festival, then your best bet would be the parking garages on Fillmore & Lombard or on Pierce Street between Chestnut & Lombard.
Transportation in San Francisco
Instead of driving, we would recommend taking public transportation or grabbing an Uber or Lyft. There are several Muni lines (41, 22, 30, 45) that will get you close enough to walk to the event.
