EVERYONE should read the Survival Guide before you come.


  1. ARRIVE EARLY! Enjoy the full day & keep the line shorter
  2. Take mass transit or bike; bike parking at 19th & Minnesota; No driving on Minnesota between 19th and 22nd this year. PARK cars at UCSF lot at 16th and 3rd — discount rate till Midnight!
  3. Respect our neighbors, no loud noises entering or leaving, don’t block driveways, use OUR toilets.
  4. NO boom boxes, renegade sound systems or unapproved fire and keep noise down after 10pm!
  5. Pack out all trash you bring, properly separate any discards you get from the event by putting them in the right bin, and LEAVE NO TRACE! We have 70% waste diversion and want to do even better!
  6. Come back Monday at 11am to help with our neighborhood-wide clean-up and help leave things cleaner than they were!
  7. Read the DECOMmandments/Survival Guide below.

FYI: Smoking is now prohibited on any open air public property in the city of SF, including the park as per Article 191: Prohibiting smoking in city park and recreation areas.
