Accordion Day in San Francisco

Please join us Friday, June 11 for Accordion Day as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the accordion being named San Francisco's official musical instrument as well as National Accordion Awareness Month.

We are inviting all accordionists to come to the steps of city hall by 11:30 a.m. for a 30-minute mini concert of songs we all kind of know. we will be performing under the name The Blazing Bellows. At noon, I expect the mayor to give us a proclamation and we will launch into a rousing rendition of the song San Francisco (open your golden gate). The steps of city hall are located on Polk St.  between Grove and McAllister.

For everyone who participates, there will be free pizza, sodas and accordion-shaped cookies.

A parking garage is available down the block and there is a lot of metered street parking in this area. If anyone wishes to bring a chair and music stand, this is OK.

If you would like to be part of this fun, exciting event, please contact us at 415 440 0800 so we know how much pizza to order.
