Application Deadline: December 15, 2023

Founded in 2014, the San Francisco Aerial Arts Festival is the Bay Area’s premiere aerial arts event that features internationally recognized aerial artists and new artists breaking into the field. Produced by Zaccho Dance Theatre and co-presented with Fort Mason Center for Arts and Culture, this biennial festival brings together spectacle, daring athleticism and poetry to create a dynamic three day performance event.

We are seeking individual artists and companies with finished work to be featured in the San Francisco Aerial Arts Festival’s showcase at the Cowell Theater on Friday, August 16 and Saturday, August 17, 2024. 

Our mission is to create a world-class festival devoted to aerial artistry in all its shapes & forms. We bring together many of the finest performers and practitioners working today and showcase their artistry as it is rarely seen: side-by-side in a multi-faceted celebration, featuring concert and site-specific performances presented against the backdrop of Fort Mason in San Francisco’s beautiful Marina District.
