Top 10 San Francisco Events for Party People

If you like to party with friends and people in your community, then check this list out to see what fellow San Franciscans will be up to throughout the year.
The Top Ten
1 Oktoberfest

Like beer, food, and music? Then you'll definitely love San Francisco's very own Oktoberfest.

2 Bay to Breakers

What better way to welcome summer than by attending Bay to Breakers? Wake up early in the morning to get drunk with thousands of San Franciscans, in costume nonetheless. Runners beware. This isn't your average marathon.

3 LovEvolution

The streets are shut down again for this party that brings the summer season to an end. Over 100,000 people flock to San Francisco to celebrate the love we have for our community. Dress up in bright colors and prepare for a day of music, dancing, and pure debauchery.

4 Outside Lands Music Festival

It seems almost common for 100,000 people to get together in San Francisco. This time, the event is in August, and the reason is to celebrate world-class musicians. Past artists have included Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, and M.I.A.

5 Exotic Erotic Ball & Expo

Feeling a little naughty? Every October, San Francisco has its very own Exotic Erotic Ball. Spend the weekend indulging in the adult entertainment industry. 2009 will mark the 30th year of this sultry event.

6 Burning Man

Although this party isn't in San Francisco, it is still high on my list because it seems like half of San Francisco flocks to the desert for this event. If you don't have friends who are going, don't worry. Ask your closest neighbor for a ride because I'm sure they already have a caravan lined up.

7 How Weird Street Faire

The mission is "an experiment in creating peace and to benefit the non-profit World Peace Through Technology Organization."

It's May. The weather is getting nice. Why not dress as weirdly as possible and party on the streets? After all, it is in the name of charity.

8 Noise Pop

If you love indie music, film, and arts, then Noise Pop is THE event to know about. Not only will you see the latest and greatest talents the world has to offer, but you will also get to celebrate with people who share the same appreciation for the arts.

9 Oysterfest

Oysters, beer, and music. For $20, you can consume as much as your heart desires before going home with the person you love - or maybe just a cute stranger.

10 ETD Pop

Electro Techno Disco Pop. If you like to listen to music, dance, party, and have a good time - or all of the above - check out ETD Pop. This party has been going strong for over a decade.

The Contenders
11 Bring your own Big Wheel

Adults riding little kids' plastic bikes and trikes? I would so do this.
