San Francisco Ballet
Lights dim. History comes alive. This year SF Ballet celebrates the centennial of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition with its production of Nutcracker, which is set in San Francisco in 1915, the year the Exposition brought the world to San Francisco’s doorstep.

Palace of Fine Arts
After the fair closed, this ephemeral “city within a city” was all but erased from the landscape. The only building saved from demolition—and still standing in its original location—was the Palace of Fine Arts. Repaired in the 1930s, reconstructed in the 1960s, and recently restored, this beloved city landmark is one of architect Bernard Maybeck’s San Francisco masterworks.

To commemorate the exact Centennial of the Closing Day of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, the '1915' lights on San Francisco's Ferry Building are being turned off!
Please join us for a fun ceremonial salute to 'closing day' on the Embarcadero in front of the Ferry Building. There will be wonderful souvenirs to the first 500 attendees, music, a tribute to Lincoln Beachey, CC Moore and Sunny Jim Rolph, and surprises galore! Vintage attire is encouraged!
Program is 4:15 - 5:15 - get there early!
