First Annual Free Polk Street Blues Festival September 25-26th


Steven Restivo Event Services, LLC and The Polk District Merchants Association are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Polk Street Blues Festival. The free two-day festival brings live blues music to Upper Polk Street from Pacific to Union on Saturday and Sunday, September 25-26th.

San Francisco is already known for its love of the blues and Steven Restivo Event Services, LLC produces one of the nation’s largest free Jazz Festivals on Fillmore Street. When the Polk District Merchants Association described their desire to host a Blues Festival, this coincided with a long-time dream of Steven Restivo to produce a Blues Festival, “Since the earlier SF Blues Festival produced by Tom Mazzolini’s ended in 2008, we are excited that we were able to find a way to bring a blues festival back to San Francisco. The forward thinking Polk Street Merchants District Association had the original concept of this festival and we’ve been working on this for months to bring this festival to life.”

The festival will feature two main stages, a merchant marketplace, arts and crafts, gourmet food booths, a large family area, café seating areas, and much more. We expect that this event will have record turnout because it is now the only free blues event in San Francisco.

In addition to live blues from professional musicians, a local child music and art, Yoga and performance and education group, Bird-SF (, will have several of their student musicians playing. These extraordinary kids from 5-10 play an array of instruments from guitar, piano and of course blues guitar. The event should offer something for everyone from the dedicated blues purist, to parents looking for an afternoon of music and light entertainment for the kids, to gourmet food, arts and crafts.
