2018 Holiday Events Calendar


Happy Holidays! There are just so many fun things to partake of this season. For a family-friendly evening try the Dance-Along Nutcracker, put on by the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band. If you have your own tutu, bring it along, but don’t worry if you don’t; they have rentals available. There are plenty of places to ice skate this season: In addition to the Union Square and Embarcadero, a new Winter Park is open in Civic Center. I hope your holidays are merry and bright!
