The festival features free shows from May through October, with Thursday lunchtime concerts and weekend sessions with performances on three outdoor stages. Organizers say the festival reflects the rich cultures and creativity of the Bay Area. They stress that the programs in the San Francisco park are family-friendly and accessible.
