Event Details



Friends of SOMArts,


Do you like hot bands, cold beer and the warm glow of giving to a good cause? If so, we hope you will join us for the first-ever SOMArts Summer Shindig—an urban garden party, silent auction and fundraiser. We all know San Francisco is known for the Summer of Love: make it a SOMA of Love on July 20, 3–6pm and gather in the sunshine to support one of the city’s most essential cultural institutions.

Tickets by donation to the Summer Shindig ($25 & up) include:


  • Complimentary food by Fuki and a cocktail

  • Live music by Little Sister, GAYmous and more!

  • Free advance ticket to the annual Day of the Dead exhibition opening celebration in October or monthly queer performance series The News (up to $12 value)

  • An opportunity to mix and mingle with the extended SOMArts family, a colorful community of artists, activists, changemakers and risk takers


The Summer Shindig silent auction highlights San Francisco’s favorite things: food, bikes and dogs, all donated by artists and local businesses who support SOMArts. We’ll also announce our Volunteer of the Year, so you can high-five the special person who has contributed more than 75 hours of top-notch volunteerism at SOMArts events over the past few months.


Able to give more than $25 in support of SOMArts? We’re eternally grateful and eager to love you back:



Special thanks to our friends at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, Fuki Truck and One Brick who are helping to make this event possible!


One Brick provides support to local non-profit and community organizations by creating a unique, social and flexible volunteer environment for those interested in making a concrete difference in the community. One Brick enables people to get involved, have an impact and have fun, without the requirements of individual long-term commitments.

See you at the Shindig!

SOMArts Cultural Center

Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts

SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.

Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.

When a SOMArts produced event is ticketed, you can buy it here on EventBrite. SOMArts frequently hosts independent productions that manage advance tickets separately, so you may be directed elsewhere from an event page.
