Glen Park Art Festival

I'll be vending at this event! it's been a while- come say hi!

 

About the Festival

Glen Park has felt like a neighborhood for a very long time. In fact, the first Glen Park all-neighborhood gathering took place 90 years ago, in 1911!

But the modern-day Festival came to life in 1997, created by a group of neighbors who had been talking about the neighborhood's many artists and craftspeople. "Wouldn't it be great for them to come together to exhibit their work in Glen Park?" the conversation went. "How about a street fair?" Thus, the Glen Park Festival began.

Since then, the Festival has evolved from a folksy, spontaneous neighborhood get-together to a well-planned annual event that combines fun and community support. The Festival brings residents, neighbors and friends together for a day of entertainment, music, dancing, and good food. The day promotes neighborhood restaurants, artists and craftspeople from Glen Park and well beyond.

But it does something more: The Glen Park Festival raises money for children's programs based in Glen Park. In 2014, the festival donated over $25,000 to fund equipment, field trips, educational programs and other enhancements in and around the neighborhood. For more on where the festival's proceeds go, see our grant recipients page.

Applications for grants from the 2018 festival are now being accepted -- you can obtain an application here. Applications for grants must be received by May 19th, 2018.

Donations are accepted anytime, and a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all contributions to the festival are tax-deductible.

The artists and craftspeople are so popular that many come back year after year, and the entertainment and food are as eclectic as the neighborhood!

It doesn't matter whether you're from Glen Park or Glendora — you'll feel like part of the neighborhood. The Glen Park Festival is a great time and a great cause! We hope you'll join us on Sunday, April 29th.

Finding the Festival

The festival is held right in San Francisco's Glen Park village, along Diamond Street between Bosworth and Chenery, as well as extending down Wilder street. Chances are, if you live in the neighborhood you pass through here most every day.

The Glen Park BART station is right across the street and will be running Sunday hours during the festival. The MUNI routes 44 O'Shaugnessy36 Teresita and 52 Excelsior also pass right by; the J Church metro line is a block away. Street parking in the area tends to be hard to find on festival day, so we recommend taking public transit if possible.

The festival is a non-smoking event; smoking is not permitted within the festival boundaries.

Readings at Elementary Schools

So excited that I’m going to Glennview Elementary School tomorrow 9/20 to read my books and interact with the second graders!  Then next Tuesday 9/26 I am even more excited to be going to Nesbit, my old elementary school. (I haven’t been there since I was done with the fifth grade. Going back there will be a trip both physically and mentally.)  Thanks to all the people who helped me contact all these elementary schools so I can accomplished my grant project, which was to go to elementary schools, read my books, and help educate the students about disabilities.

Book Reading Event at Artvale Gallery

I'm excited to do my first event for a new grant project! I'll be reading my books to children, doing a few little art projects, and educating them about disabilities during the after school program from 2-5 at the Artvale Gallery in Oakland. I'm still looking for a few more schools and/or after school programs to complete my grant project, so if you think your children's schools would be interested in having me come and visit, read, and do a presentation about disability awareness, please let me know. Thanks! 

This  activity was supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Arts and Disability Center at the University of California Los Angeles.
