Yes, this is technically the last weekend of summer 2023, because the autumnal equinox is next Friday, September 22 at exactly 11:49 PM and San Francisco will be celebrating the last weekend of summer with lots of free events (though you might have) to escape a little drip), as this weekend offers a free Greek food festival, the inaugural Sunset Night Market, and the 44th annual Haight-Ashbury Street Fair.

Sunset Night Market

None other than Chef Martin Yan will be in the Sunset on Friday night for the inaugural Sunset Night Market, hosted by the Sunset Mercantile folks who also host the Sunset farmers markets. It runs from 5-10pm Friday night on Irving Street between 20th and 23rd avenues, with organizers promising “A family-friendly night market inspired by the night markets of Asia, featuring local food, entertainment, activities, merchants and artists.” And while this is the first ever such event, it could be a springboard for monthly First Friday events in the Sunset starting next spring.

Haight-Ashbury Street Fair

After a date switcheroo last year, the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair is now a mid-September street fair held this Sunday. And to honor hip-hop’s 50th anniversary, the Main Stage at Stanyan Street features DJ Qbert, the Excelsior District native of Invisibl Skratch Piklz fame, plus DJ Mind Motion and San Quinn. There will also be live music on the Mason Street stage, plus the performers, vendors and food this fair is known for, running from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Or if you’d rather get your peacock feather hat on on Sunday, the Emperor Norton Place Celebration will honor all things Emperor Norton on the newly renamed Emperor Norton Way in Chinatown, from 1pm to 4pm Sunday.
