This Sunday, September 17, Brava joins Calle 24 and the Latino Cultural District in bringing Fiesta de las Américas back to the Mission! From 11am - 5pm, the 24th Street corridor will be alive with dance, music, food, and family friendly activities! Las Fiestas de Las Américas celebrates the culture, arts and music found from Patagonia to the Arctic Circle, with particular focus to the Latino diaspora who have made San Francisco their home for generations.
During the Festival, make your way down to Brava at 24th and York for a full day of music and dance. AND, stop in for a sneak peek of our newly renovated storefront spaces! After years of fundraising and planning, the renovations on the spaces are nearly complete. The new spaces boast a state of the art cabaret, offices for Brava's expanding staff and other neighborhood nonprofits, and dressing rooms and shower facilities for performers!
