Salesforce Winterfest

Thursday through Saturday, various times
Salesforce Park
Live music, holiday carolers, photos with Santa and a silent disco are just some of the festive activities planned for Salesforce Park's three-day Winterfest this Thursday, December 19, through Saturday. This event is free and open to the public and will also feature arts and crafts, face painting, and a performance by the Velocity Arts & Entertainment circus troupe.
How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take the 5 Fulton, 7 Haight/Noriega, 14 Mission, 14R Mission Rapid, 25 Treasure Island, 38 Geary or the 38R Geary Rapid routes to or near the Salesforce Transit Center.
Muni Service Notes: There are no planned service changes for this event, though there could be minor delays and some crowding on those Muni routes listed above due to possible increased ridership.
Remember that you can take Muni for the entire day for a single $5 fare. The new $5 Day Pass, available on MuniMobile®, is part of Muni’s recent fare changes. The pass is intended to encourage a safe, convenient way to pay your fare and quickly board Muni vehicles, which reduces overall travel time for everyone. The $5 Day Pass is Muni bus, rail and historic streetcars only.
“On Tap” gives you a heads up about the big events in town and what Muni routes and lines will get you to the party. Look for this feature to be posted usually on Thursdays for a look ahead to the weekend. Check out our Weekend Traffic & Transit Advisory for more details.
