Top 5 Events of 2013: San Francisco

San Francisco has had quite a year of events! Looking back on 2013 there are a few standouts that I think really highlight the uniqueness of this city we call home. Here are some of our favorite events this past year (in no particular order).

5. Williams-Sonoma Classes

One of our most popular categories on Eventbrite are classes. Williams-Sonoma has some pretty amazing cooking classes that they’ve launched with their new cooking school at the Union Square location. Their 2013 events aren’t over yet — you can still sign up for their remaining classes in December as well as upcoming classes in 2014.

4. Bay to Breakers

A San Francisco staple, Bay to Breakers presented by craigslist has been deemed the “original fun run,” a category we’re seeing a huge rise in as a company. Even though the 2014 race is a few months out, you can actually register now to ensure you get a spot in the corral you want and before prices increase in January.

3. Ruby Skye Shows

Music events have been huge in 2013, especially with the rising popularity of EDM. One of the most popular SF venues to check out a show is Ruby Skye, a venue that hosted hundreds of events this past year.

Last May Wanderlust Yoga in the City took over the Little Marina Green. This 1-day event featured top local yoga instructors and encouraged city-dwellers to immerse themselves in the spirit of Wanderlust right in their own neighborhood. We love free events that bring a community together to experience something unique collectively. Thanks, Wanderlust!

1. SF PRIDE

And finally, the weekend following the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decisions on same-sex marriage, this year’s SF Pride was even bigger and better than ever. With over 200 parade contingents, 300 exhibitors, and more than 20 stages and venues, the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest LGBT gathering in the nation.
