PIER 39's 39th Anniversary Celebration in 2017
In the late 1970s, San Francisco developer Warren Simmons dreamed of an urban park along the city's undeveloped waterfront. On Oct. 4, 1978, Simmons's dream became a reality when PIER 39, a former dilapidated cargo pier, opened as an eclectic collection of specialty shops, restaurants and attractions. As the first project built along The Embarcadero since World War II, PIER 39 paved the way for future developments beside the Bay. Today, more than 11 million guests visit the PIER each year.
What better way to celebrate PIER 39's 39th Anniversary on the San Francisco waterfront than with a one-of-a-kind celebration? Each Friday for 39 weeks, starting Jan. 20, 2017, guests are invited to the PIER to celebrate nearly four decades of amazing views, fresh seafood, unique local shopping and, of course, sea lions.
Each week will offer something different, from discounts and giveaways to fun special events like Movie Nights, beer and wine pours, and more. There’s something for everyone to enjoy throughout the year.
The anniversary celebration culminates with the PIER’s 39th Birthday Bash on Oct. 14, with live music and entertainment over San Francisco Bay from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. Enjoy roving glow-in-the-dark activities, DJs, a silent disco, and a live performance by The Party Crashers. While there, guests can party with a purpose, as the PIER will be accepting donations for the victims of the North Bay fires at the Entrance Plaza from noon - 10 p.m., in partnership with the American Red Cross.
