Events in San Francisco this March

Black Cuisine Festival
When: March 4th, 2017
Where: Bayview Hunters Point at Dr. George W Davis Senior Center
1753 Carroll Avenue
San Francisco, CA

The free event, presented by Bayview Senior Services, will feature live music, vendor booths, a Kid’s zone, and a dazzling variety of food venues. Some of the offerings include fried chicken, catfish, oxtails, ribs, links, black-eyed peas, red beans and rice, greens, yams, mac & cheese, cornbread, sweet potato pie, peach cobbler, pound cake and other soulful delights–all of which will be sure to rival mama and grandmas’ down-home cooking.

Black Cuisine will also give soul food novices and chefs an opportunity to share their culinary talents by entering the Soul Food Cooking contest with winners receiving cash prizes. Last year’s festival drew more than 2,000 attendees and we anticipate that number increasing this year.
