Artistic excellence, inclusion, diversity and innovation are at the heart of our mission. As the only curated arts park fully dedicated to the long-term presentation of free arts and cultural programs, Yerba Buena Gardens has a unique place in the cultural landscape of San Francisco.

We’ve commissioned some of the Bay Area’s most remarkable artists to create new work that will premiere in Yerba Buena Gardens. These are:

Other season highlights include astounding sounds from the Dafnis Prieto Sextet, heart-pumping Afro-beat from Brazilian group Bixiga 70, site-specific theater by Theater Rhinoceros’s John Fisher, the Bay Area premiere of Yosvany Terry’s Ancestral Memories, plus so much more, including outstanding artists yet to be announced.
