All the Creative Folks Are Gathering at SF Design Week


Music and comedy get all the love for hosting San Francisco festivals, but Bay Area designers were having their own gathering long before Outside Lands or Clusterfest hit the scene. This week, West Coast creators and makers will be meeting up with 45,000 of their friends at SF Design Week.

Events kick off Thursday, June 20 with a ticketed party at Pier 27 and continue through Saturday, June 29 with a Diane Dorrans Saeks-led tour through some of the top design workshops in the city. Altogether, there are more than 300 events and pop-ups throughout the city during Design Week, including tech talks, student workshops, interactive art installations, and maker studios. On Friday, June 21, don’t miss the always-popular studio crawl to peek inside architecture and design studios, shops, galleries, tech companies and startups around San Francisco.

Space is limited at many of the panels, so check out the full schedule online—you can filter by date and location if scrolling through hundreds of events isn’t your jam— and snag your tickets ASAP.
