Who We Are
The Excelsior Action Group tried something new in 2017. After 15 years holding a festival, EAG joined with SF Sunday Streets to host activities during the event in the Persia Triangle as guests enjoyed the overall event. EAG's 2017's team staffed the bouncy-house, a building blocks game and lawn bowling. In the Persia Triangle guests enjoyed a bluegrass band and visited several community information tables. Established in 2002, the Festival so outgrew its footprint that since 2011, we have partnered with Excelsior Sunday Streets. This year's overall event attracted almost 10,000 visitors!
Established in 2002, the Excelsior Festival was created to bring attention to one of San Francisco's most vibrant neighborhoods. .
