The uniquely San Francisco How Weird Street Faire returned this Saturday with nine stages, dozens of live DJs spinning electronic music and hundreds of attendees dressed in far-out outfits, ranging from anime costumes to nothing at all.

Sporting the theme “Close Encounters of the Weird Kind,” How Weird celebrates San Francisco’s diversity and eclectic character, while raising funds for an educational nonprofit called the World Peace Technology Organization.

The festival was held on Howard Street in SoMa on the same day as the Leather Walk and Bearrison Street Fair—making a particularly eccentric afternoon on the streets of South of Market.

Alongside music performances, How Weird featured an Art Alley with artists selling their works, a marketplace with vendors and food trucks including Sunrise Deli and Curry Up Now.
