Past Programs

The Powell Street Festival Society’s programming has expanded so that we present a season of events, as well as partnerships with other organizations throughout the year. This expansion of programs allows us to collaborate with other organizations, artists, and communities that we wouldn’t normally have the capacity to do during our festival weekend. We are also able to present in other venues and areas of the city and outreach to new audiences.
