Mendell Plaza Event Series Finale

Situated at the historic, cultural and transportation nexus in Bayview, Mendell Plaza is an active, yet under-utilized, outdoor meeting place in this community’s ‘town center’. A recent, citizen- sponsored strategic call for ‘closure’ of the Plaza served to galvanize several local community action groups and to capture the attention of city agencies. That action generated the creation of the Mendell Plaza planning collaborative - POP (Planning our Plaza)  - and a goal: developing a series of events for Mendell Plaza. On April 7, 2012, less than one month after the first meeting, Mendell Plaza Presents launched a series of music and entertainment activities on the plaza.  The results have been good, very well received, and have established the events as a ‘gift’ to our neighborhood.  However, a wider audience of Bayview residents is essential to the success of this endeavor. All are welcome and encouraged to join in a larger community effort on  Saturday afternoons in the Plaza. 

The Mendell Plaza Presents Event Series concludes the first phase of
this free community-wide music and arts entertainment with a celebration on
Saturday, June 30th 2012. On hand for this major event will be Senator
Mark Leno, Mayor Ed Lee,  Supervisor Malia Cohen, Capt. Paul Chignell,
and other civic and community leaders.

Entertainment will include Break-Dance opener and a main-event performance by
The Faye Carol Quartet. 

A handful of active and dedicated Bayview-based individuals, organizations such as BRITE, 4800 H.OA., the Bayview Opera House, Bayview Merchants Association, along with the San Francisco Department of Economic and Workforce Development, DPW, SFPD, have made these largely volunteer-supported events possible.  The community is grateful for their on-going support. 

Additional events will begin in August, 2012.

Saturday, June 30
1:30PM - 4:30PM
Mendell Plaza
at the corner of Third St and Palou St., San Francisco
