Presented By

Zaccho Dance Theatre

Aug 16th Through Aug 18th

Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) presents Zaccho Dance Theatre’s biennial San Francisco Aerial Arts Festival on the FMCAC campus for FORT MASON ART’s Summer 2024 program. The San Francisco Aerial Arts Festival takes place Friday, August 16, 2024 through Sunday, August 18, 2024.

The city’s premiere aerial arts event, the San Francisco Aerial Arts Festival (SFAAF) features internationally recognized artists and exciting newcomers breaking into the field. This biennial festival brings together spectacle, daring athleticism, aerial dance, and circus. 

The 2024 festival features two evenings of showcase performances, a youth matinee, and a site-specific installation by Flyaway Productions designed for the fire escapes at FMCAC. New for 2024, SFAAF presents a curated selection of films that capture the grace, strength, and imagination of the aerial arts, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. The film festival screens parallel to the live performances at FMCAC.

Please visit SFAerialArtsFest.org for information about the SF Aerial Arts Festival, the artists, and the free Aerial Arts Film Festival.
