Top Things to Do in San Francisco in March 2017

March 9th, 2017

The rain has finally cleared up (for now), and it’s time to have some fun in the city. Here are a few of the top things to do in San Francisco in March, from the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival to celebrating The Summer of Love.


3/7 – 3/19 Eclipsed (at the newly renovated Curran Theatre)

Written by Dania Gurira, star of AMC’s The Walking Dead, Eclipsed tells the story of five Liberian women and their tale of survival near the end of the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003. Receiving high praise on Broadway for being the first all-female cast, director, and playwright, this is an empowering play for women of all ages and races.

3/26 United Airlines Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon San Francisco

Celebrating 20 years, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series has become an iconic race. As one of the only half marathons that cross the Golden Gate Bridge, this scenic race begins at Ocean Beach and has bands performing along the course.


3/29 Prince 30th Anniversary Concert “Sign O’ The Times” with The Purple Ones (1015 Folsom)

It’s still hard to believe Prince is gone. Lucky for us, his music will last forever. Come dance like it’s 1999 and pay homage to Prince’s critically acclaimed album and film.


3/30 – 3/31 San Francisco Giants vs Oakland Athletics (AT&T Park)

Baseball season is fast approaching. Enjoy a pre-season game as the San Francisco Giants host the Oakland A’s back home in AT&T Park.
