This year, the Festival’s theme is “High Tech on the High Seas: The Evolution of Maritime Culture and Technology.” Learn about capstans, the 1907 Hercules’ powerplant, and other “engines that made a difference” while sampling traditional music from internationally renowned acts and local performers on three stages at Hyde Street Pier. This is a chance to “Find Your Park” on the San Francisco waterfront!
Family-friendly activities will include: knot tying; rigging, caulking, steam bending, and rope-making demonstrations; a small boat launch; sail raising; living history performers; kids craft stations; and more.
Performers scheduled to appear: Kevin Burke, Diana Gameros and Maria Jose Montijo, Shay Black, The Holdstocks, Bu Falle African Drum and Dance Ensemble, Maureen Brennan, Ron and Natalie Daise, The Dogwatch Nautical Band, Patrick Landeza, Richard Adrianowicz, Simon Spalding, The Fire, Brass Farthing, Chris Maden, Megan Messinger, Sean Wahl, Laurel Wong, Amelia Hogan, Basil Trollop and Friends, Susan Walsh, Penny Opry, Steve Canright, Erin Rose Conner, and Bartholomew Faire.
