Event Programming

At Parks Alliance, our goal is to encourage people to get out and explore their parks. Over the years, we’ve found that one of the best ways to achieve this goal is through event programming. Check out some of our event-based programs, where we host and champion events all over the city!

City-Wide Public Space Initiative

The San Francisco Parks Alliance has partnered with San Francisco’s Office of Workforce Development to pilot a new program that helps communities improve their public spaces. Our goal for this ongoing project is to create and champion recurring, community-led activation and beautification projects that encourage park users to make the most of their public spaces.

Public Space Summit

Join civic leaders who have made a significant impact in public spaces, network with community groups and public space advocates and participate in break-out sessions covering best practices for community engagement, outreach, private and public fundraising.

Golden Gate Park 150th Anniversary

2020 marks the 150th Anniversary of Golden Gate Park (GGP150). As an international tourist attraction and urban oasis, Golden Gate Park serves as a public space where people can connect, relax, and enjoy nature. GGP150 will celebrate the park’s history and importance within the city.

Party for the Parks

Each year, the Parks Alliance hosts a gala like no other in San Francisco. The event includes a cocktail reception, extravagant buffet dinner, and live auction raising money for different important civic projects. Each year, the party is held in a different park or public space in San Francisco and encompasses a new theme. Learn more about last year’s event and join our newsletter to be first to know when next year’s date is confirmed!
