Slow Fish 2018

Welcome! We’re thrilled you’re interested in being a part of Slow Fish 2018 in San Francisco. If you’re ready to buy tickets, head over to our event page now

We are Slow Food San Francisco, a relatively new Board that is passionate about seafood, the Earth’s waters, the work of fishing and harvesting folks, and consumer habits around fish consumption. We think San Francisco is a pretty special place, and defined in large part by the Pacific Ocean and the Bay. And we know that we can all be doing more to ensure that the waters around us stay healthy, and our coastal communities stay resilient.

So we were inspired to sponsor a community gathering for people that feel the same way about not only the Bay Area, but about the waters around the Earth and the seafood we eat.
