The Mission truly represents the Bay Area’s artistic soul, and it’s our intention to reflect and celebrate this richness. We’ll solicit participation from artisans in the Mission District and beyond to engage the public in this community celebration of the artistic and cultural life of the Bay Area. With this event, the San Francisco’s historic Mission District will come alive as the Bay Area’s preeminent melting pot of – and destination for – multicultural arts and artists.
Mission Bazaar Dates & Hours
Our inaugural event is Saturday and Sunday May 17th and 18th. Hours are from 10 am to 8 pm both days. This is an indoor event; the Bazaar goes on rain or shine. Admission is only $5 for the public.
• APPLICATIONS must be filled out online or postmarked by Friday, April 11th.
• SELECTION RESULTS will be emailed or otherwise confirmed by Friday, April 18th.
• BOOTH & TABLE FEES are due May 2nd.
Marketing & Promotion
Mission Bazaar will be widely promoted beginning in April throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The campaign will include media partnerships with weekly newspapers, online services, email providers, publicity and a broad postering and post card distribution outreach.
Mission Bazaar will also be marketed through its community of participants that include over 150 artisan vendors, 20 non-profit organizations and over 50 performing acts featured throughout the weekend.
Transportation & Parking
The Armory is located just two blocks from the 16th Street Mission BART Station. There will be limited parking lot spaces and street parking available around the building.
About The Armory
Mission Bazaar is proud to present the first public event at the historic San Francisco Armory in over thirty years. This 200,000 square foot reproduction Moorish Castle was completed in 1914 and was used as a National Guard facility until 1976. It is full of period detail including cavernous dungeon-like basements, stone staircases, sweeping corridors, and a gigantic drill court spanning almost an acre.
The Armory was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and has been out of official use since this time.
