A neighborhood full of music history, fine dining, and upscale shopping, The Fillmore packs more into a few city blocks than you can believe.

Fillmore Jazz Festival
Blending art and soul in one of the country’s most unique neighborhoods, the San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Festival is the largest free Jazz festival on the West Coast, drawing over 100,000 visitors over the Independence Day weekend.

Fillmore Street, linking the Western Addition in the south to Pacific Heights in the north, is the dynamic axis of what locals call “The Fillmore.’’ A hub for san Francisco’s music scene, the area has a rich musical history. On the south side of Geary Boulevard, the legendary 1960s music emporium, The Fillmore, continues to rock with top-name performances. In early July, Fillmore Street between Jackson and Eddy streets transforms into a live music mecca, blending sounds of jazz and soul with art during the Fillmore Jazz Festival.

Fillmore Highlights:

The neighborhood is also home to some of San Francisco’s most historic churches, including Bethel A.M.E. Church, First A.M.E. Zion Church, St. John Coltrane African Orthodox Church and Third Baptist Church (all of which are stops on the African American Freedom Trail).

Upper Fillmore is one of the city’s top destinations for shopping. Find chic vintage shops alongside big fashion names like Rothy’s and Alice + Olivia.

Go casual with some delicious California-style pizza at Pizzeria Delfina or splurge on a decadent dinner at the acclaimed SPQR. Then, finish your evening in the Fillmore with a nightcap at The Snug.
