N Judah stop: Carl and Cole. Bus: 43, 6, 66, 7, 71

Join the neighborhood celebration at the Heart of Cole Festival at this charming and free event on Cole Street between Carl and Grattan. The festival features local art and fine crafts, food from neighborhood restaurants, live music, a display of historical Cole Valley photographs, a full block of vintage automobiles owned by neighborhood residents, events for children, and much more!

Booksmith will be joining us this year with an exciting selection of interesting and irresistible books for both children and adults. Aligning with our focus on local artists, Booksmith will be hosting a daylong celebration of local woman authors. They will be featuring some of San Francisco's most exciting and intriguing women authors with signings and appearances in their booth (in front of Cole Garage) all day long.

At noon, people are invited to bring their pets to Cole & Parnassus to show their tricks.  The show will be MC'd by Bill Hancock.

By the way, I did the poster this year :-)
You may buy them at the fair or order them from this website later.
