CREATE!, a visual and performing arts celebration of San Francisco’s creative past, present, and future, will take place at Landing at Leidesdorff200 Leidesdorff Street from 4-8 PM on Thursday, April 25th, 2024. The visual and performing arts activation will honor the artistically innovative roots of the downtown area, specifically those of Monkey Block, the artist enclave that once thrived where the Transamerica Pyramid stands today. In its nearly 100-year lifespan, this building hosted the likes of artists such as Frida Kahlo, Jack London, Robert Louis Stevenson, Dorothea Lange, and Diego Rivera.

Pulling from this artistic history, the Downtown SF Partnership brings the resilient imagination and wonder of downtown San Francisco to life through CREATE!. This interactive activation will provide a platform for a diverse array of local artists, performers, and chefs to honor downtown’s past, present, and future through performances and creations that invite public participation throughout the evening.

The event is free and open to the public, however, we request that guests RSVP in advance if possible.
