|San Francisco International Poetry Festival||Literary|
The San Francisco International Poetry Festival (SFIPF) honors the City's great legacy of hosting and encouraging cross-cultural dialogue. In 2007, the first ever SFIPF, a four-day extravaganza, drew thousands of people from the Bay Area and beyond to venues and celebrations throughout the City, including a street party in North Beach, youth events, book signings, translation workshops and more. Since then, Friends of the SFPL has presented smaller poetry festivals in a variety of languages, such as the Iranian Literary Arts Festival, Vietnamese Poets of the Diaspora and Flor y Canto en el Barrio: A Celebration of Latino Poetry, in their ongoing effort to continue to build cultural bridges, celebrate the literary arts and foster international dialogue.
Festival has a children/youth component.
