Spooky, Fun Shit to do for Halloween in SF
Since Halloween is on a tuesday this year, it more or less means there will be Halloween themed parties and events Oct 27th – Oct31st. Here are some of the interesting and fun things we like to do this time of year.
Oct 27 & 28
If you like big art, incredible costumes, and world class DJ’s then Pier 70’s Loveboat Halloween is your best choice this year. It’s the 10th anniversary of this party and it’s a well oiled, outdoor/indoor, burner-esque, bass lined, artistic, spookfest with a lot of everything. The sound system and DJ lineup is world class, and the art cars, carnival rides, and costumes really make you feel like you’re out on the playa at night. Fatboy Slim is headlining on Friday and Moby is on Saturday, but the DJ lineup on multiple stages and art cars is thick with dope SF talent as well (check Unimog & JankyBarge).

“Critical Mass is a mass bicycle ride that takes place on the last Friday of each month in cities around the world. Everyone is invited! No one is in charge! Bring your bike!” This Friday will be Halloween Edition. Next San Francisco Critical Mass: October 27th, 2017, 5:30pm, starting at Justin Herman Plaza (foot of Market Street). Bring a bike and a costume, its totally FREE & AWESOME.
Daybreakers HALLOWEEN AT SEA
If it’s a nice day on the bay, there is no better place in the world to get your morning rave and yoga on. If you haven’t been, you should try it, getting dance sweaty before work is a trip, and Halloween just means the costumes will be extra great. Hornblower Belle | Pier 3 on the Embarcadero, San Francisco. October 27, 2017 | Yoga 6 – 6:45 am / Dance Party 6:45 – 9 am.
Spookshow, Baby! Halloween Party & Art Show!

HALLOWEEN WITH YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
Ever watch a movie at the Symphony? Anyone will tell you it’s an awesome time. Watch Mel Brooks’ hilarious cult classic Young Frankenstein on the big screen*, paired with chart-topping piano duo Anderson & Roe performing haunting music and silent film accompaniment with spine-tingling twenty-fingered dexterity—so good it’s scary.

Witches Gathering on Halloween
Hex for the Future: A Halloween Romp: Instigated by Keith Hennessy & Annie Danger
“On this night of thin veils we will open the gates to a just future and a broad, deep, liberated political imagination”
Costume: Witch drag. Wear black or mostly black. We’ve got the witch hats for you!
Keep everything else simple: we’re going into City Hall for photo op and other activities (witching!) To enter City Hall we will have to walk through metal detectors and have bags scanned. Leave your broom & athame at home.
4:00pm gather Civic Center Plaza across the street from City Hall
4:30pm the hex begins!
Many SF natives will tell you this is the best patch around. And no wonder: it’s been a staple since 1979 (and transforms into a killer cut Christmas tree lot in December).
