South By San José

Thank you to all the bands and vendors who came out and made our 25th Anniversary completely unforgettable, and to all of YOU—our community—who came this week to listen, dance, shop, drink and hang!

Since 2000, we’ve hosted South by San José in the parking lot we share with Jo’s Coffee. Each year, we come together for live music, local vendors, and good times. Music starts at noon each day, rain or shine, and the party is always and forever free to attend.
