**Pre-registration is closed for Saturday, December 1st, but you can still register at the door**

About Come Out and Play
Come Out & Play was founded in 2006 to offer the public new ways to enjoy and experience their city through games played in public spaces. It was the first festival of its kind in the world and remains a leader in identifying trends in public gaming and an inspiration for games festivals worldwide.

 

SOMArts and Come Out & Play would also like to thank  San Francisco Recreation & Parks for participating as a community partner for the Come Out & Play SF Festival and Exhibition and for allowing Victoria Manalo Draves Park to become an off-site location for festival games.
