DESCRIPTION

We will have a small team of educators making Sharpie Tie Dye at Sunday Streets SOMA!  Sunday Streets is excited to announce the first new route in five years, spanning Folsom Street from Essex to 10th Street.

Home to the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural Districts, as well as the East Cut, SoMa West (coming soon) and Yerba Buena Community Benefit Districts, South of Market borders Potrero Hill and the Mission and contains many smaller neighborhoods, including South Park, South Beach and Financial District South. Pick up an Explore Local Guide at Sunday Streets info booths for a map of local businesses and resources.

After the 1906 earthquake destroyed the area, SoMa was rebuilt with wider streets (many of which, like Folsom, are one-way) to accommodate industrial development. Today, SoMa is still home to factories and light industry, as well as SROs, tech offices, arts incubators, nightclubs and new housing developments. This mixed-use neighborhood blends residential, commercial, cultural, institutional and entertainment uses and is known for its live-work spaces, design and art production.
