Mission Bazaar returns to San Francisco’s historic Armory this weekend, December 6th & 7th. A unique hybrid of craft fair, performance event, and community center, Mission Bazaar seeks to showcase an incredibly diverse range of vibrant Bay Area creative talents.
Mission Bazaar features a diverse collection of artisans exhibiting their creative works, products, fashion and accessories. There will be over 20 hours of live performances on three stages featuring live music, circus and dance acts, performance artists and DJs, including gypsy jazz, bellydance, spoken word, beatbox, choral ensembles, fashion shows, puppetry, flamenco guitar, and much more. In addition, Mission Bazaar has invited a cross-section of Mission-based non-profit organizations to attend.
Worth checking out, if for no other reason than to see inside of the State Armory and Arsenal building, one of the city’s most unusual historic landmarks, which was purchased in 2007 by local netporn success story Kink.com, and is currently being reborn as the Armory Community Center.
