The First-Ever Valencia Evening Fair Kicks Off Tonight!

It’s no secret that the Mission is home to some of the best boutiques, restaurants, and coffee shops in the city. And tonight at the first-ever Valencia Evening Fair all of these awesome venues are coming together to celebrate the buzzy strip that they call home.

Staying open until 10 p.m. or later, many of the shops are really putting their party-planning skills to the test with Shoe Biz’s all-girls themed art show with DJ Jamaica, Benny Gold’s PBR-sponsored soirée, and The Mission Statement’s outdoor festivities.
