Reminder! Mission Bazaar This Weekend

Reminder! Mission Bazaar This Weekend

Originally uploaded by Thomas Roche

Mission Bazaar is going down at the Armory this weekend, 10am-8pm Saturday and Sunday, 1800 Mission @ 14th Street. You can’t miss it — it’s the only Moorish castle on the block!

Kickass Berkeley artist Suzanne Rachel Forbes will be showing this painting “Defending the Electronic Frontier,” and selling prints of it as a benefit for the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

But wait! There’s more!! Lots more in fact:

“Set amidst one of the San Francisco’s most dramatic historical landmark buildings, Mission Bazaar is a unique craft and performance expo that will showcase some of the Bay Area’s most vibrant creative talent. Mission Bazaar will take place on Saturday, May 17th and Sunday, May 18th from 10 am – 8 pm at The Armory at 14th & Mission in San Francisco.”

“Mission Bazaar will showcase a diverse collection of artisans exhibiting their creative works, products, fashion and accessories. There will be over 20 hours of live performances on three stages featuring live music, circus and dance acts, performance artists and DJs, including gypsy jazz, bellydance, spoken word, beatbox, choral ensembles, fashion shows, puppetry, flamenco guitar, and much more.”

I tell ya, this Armory place is truly amazing, and this is a rare opportunity to get a look inside it. I saw them putting the facility together today and it looks like it’s gonna be AMAZING.

Oh, and in case it’s like 100 degrees, that big stone building really keeps things nice and comfy-cool. Just sayin.

All this for five clams — less than you’d spend to see Iron Man for the seventh time! Be there!
