WNP Events Calendar
We're happy to appear at street fairs, festivals, and other community events to show old photos of the neighborhood, give out free booklets, and chat with people about west SF history.
We also do slide shows and lectures for community groups, classrooms, preschools, clubs, historical societies, and other organizations who'd like to hear more about topics like the Sunset district, the old Rancho San Miguel, earthquake shacks, and "Carville".
Special walks for WNP members and their guests occur at least quarterly. Past walks have included Lands End, Ocean Avenue, the Parkside District, and Forest Hill. Join the Western Neighborhoods Project and come learn more about these fascinating San Francisco neighborhoods.
