New this year, Workshop @ the Treasure Trove is our own take on all things DIY and Craftastic! Hosted in association with Workshop, Etsy, GoGo Craft and Six-Word Memoirs, the Treasure Trove will be a place to create, learn, recycle, and build. Stop by the tent to get the full schedule of events or to just chill in the SF Zine Fest Library.
Treasure Chest - our exclusive vendor village offers an eclectic mix of the best Bay Area crafters, poster artists, designers and tastemakers sharing and selling their fantastic creations.
Festival favorite, Madu Salon, is back to give complimentary hair-dos and trims. We are excited to introduce some of our favorite burlesque acts from along the East and West Coasts who will be on hand to share their unique brands of irreverent (and sometimes foul-mouthed) humor. Also each day near sunset we will pay homage to the great city of New Orleans with Second Line performances from The San Francisco Bourbon Kings and Brass Mafia. The 30-foot live mural wall, presented by Pacific Art Collective, features the finest Bay Area graffiti artists.
Once again we’ve partnered with The Bay Bridged to bring you “Ferris Wheel Confessions.” Have an embarrassing musical or personal secret you'd like to share while rotating through the air? Tell them your story and a glorious 60-foot high Ferris wheel ride is on us.
Our festival wouldn’t be complete without the M.T. Pockets Traveling Midway of Curiosities and Delights, who bring back their host of delights such as “The Great Airship Race” and the “Bean Bag Burlesque”, Face Painting and several regulation size Skee-Ball alleys will also be on hand to round out the carnival theme.
And yes, there is more…
Robert James’ incredible flower sculpture, Wish, rises majestically in the middle of Treasure Island, as do Robert Bose’s ethereal Balloon Chains.
Dubbo brings their amazing visuals to the bridged stage using live camera feeds, animation and sampled visual media to wreak havoc on your eyeballs.
Roaming Hunger, our favorite food truck blog, brings us some of the latest and greatest Bay Area Street Food to the festival. Look for them near the ferris wheel.
