Busy parents hardly get the time to step out or kick-back during the whirwind of childrearing. For those strapped on time, energy, and resources, the Yerba Buena Arts District is your social salvation. Enjoy a daylong block party in downtown San Francisco with complimentary admission to five of the city's leading cultural institutions. SFMOMA, Contemporary Jewish Museum, Museum of the African Diaspora, Children’s Creativity Museum, and the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival welcome families to a day of free arts and crafts, screenings, workshops, and live performances. Among the exciting, hands-on, and kid-friendly activities at this year’s Yerba Buena Family Day are opportunities to create abstract chalk art, experiment with stop-motion film, finger paint, and take wildly transformative photos of friends and family. The event also features a performance by Latin Jazz phenomenon, Eddie Palmieri. The Yerba Buena Family Day is a parent-ready party in one convenient and easily accessible location.
