About
The challenge of NOW! is to co-create the best possible version of our community for one extraordinary week. We do this by recruiting awesome people like YOU to put on great events that they have always wanted to do. This could be a bread making class, yoga in the park, or taking over a parking spot to give away free stuff for a few hours!

When
This Fall we are making sure NOW! gets out the vote. The fest will be held NOV 3-8th, ending on election day.

Get Involved
Take a look at the ideas here and "me too" ideas you support and would like to get involved with. Ask your friends and neighbors to “me too” ideas as well. This will help them stay updated on events you support during the NOW! festival. If you'd like to post your own event, read this How To Guide. Also, feel free to contact us: nowfestsf@gmail.com.
