The 48th annual San Francisco Free Folk Festival will be live and in-person in Golden Gate Park on Saturday, July 13, 2024, in the same general location as the 2023 festival.  Our 2024 program will be posted here soon!

The  2023 festival program is still available for viewing, as well as photos, videos, and information about the festival site.

The 2023 and 2024 festivals are co-sponsored by Illuminate and San Francisco Recreation and Parks  .

All ages and musical interests are welcome at the festival. All events and workshops are open to anyone who wants to participate or just listen. Admission to everything is free!

We rely on donations and sponsors to cover the cost of renting the facility and other expenses. All the performers and workshop leaders donate their time and talent. Many of them are members of the San Francisco Folk Music Club.

The festival is run by the San Francisco Folk Music Club, a non-profit organization that was founded in 1948 and is still going strong. Membership is open to everyone.
