A Bridge-Building Community Event

With help from community partners, for every year since 1995 Sunset Youth Services has organized the annual Sunset Community Festival, celebrating the unique DNA of a region that boasts over 13 languages and cultures and an Asian population with ancestry from over 7 different countries. This free family-friendly event draws over 3,500 residents and celebrates the diversity of the region, building bridges among neighbors and providing performance opportunities for local residents.

Young people from our Sunset Youth Services community assist with setup and clean up, engineer sound for live music, and perform original songs on the main stage. Supporters and friends of SYS volunteer in the Kids Zone and at the beer and wine garden.

The festival features Sunset Mercantile’s pop-up marketplace––showcasing local merchants, makers, and artisans––and also serves as town hall and valuable gathering place for police, fire department, city officials, and nonprofits to meet with and get to know local residents. 

Our event partner Sunset Mercantile manages the vendor registration.
