San Francisco Bay Area Festivals – 2022

The San Francisco Bay Area is world-renowned for offering excellent foodie experiences, and its chock-full calendar of food and beverage events probably won’t surprise you. And, now you have a handy list to help you enjoy them!

"Pace Yourself" sign at San Francisco Street Food FestivalLike so many California travel destinations, the Bay Area is embraced by what one could call an epicurean trifecta — the Pacific Ocean’s varied seafood offerings, a variety of vineyards and, finally, amazingly fertile farmlands — and it’s also blessed with thoughtful men and women dedicated to making the most of those assets.

In fact, a main purpose of many of the festivals you’ll discover below is to showcase and celebrate their talents.

For each event entry, you’ll find where and on what date(s) it’s scheduled to occur and a link to a website where you can learn additional details. Given the ongoing pandemic, obviously plans may change. Accordingly, please plan to check again and verify the details closer to an event’s date.

You’ll notice that the list includes many dates for 2022 culinary events and others with 2021 dates. ***Events for which a 2022 date is not yet available are marked with a triple-asterisk.***

Many of these are annual events (in typical times, that is), held around the same time every year. While we plan to update the list periodically, you can of course click through to see if the organizer’s website has been updated to provide a 2022 date in the interim.

If you’re unsure about the location of any of the list’s SF Bay Area cities, the map in this article may be of assistance.

The list is quite extensive — the San Francisco Bay Area loves to celebrate food — so you may want to grab a beverage before looking through it. If you already know when you plan to visit the Bay Area, however, you can use these jump links to advance to a specific month’s events quickly:
