Nightlife Application

The California Academy of Sciences has teamed up with the San Francisco Bazaar for fun themed Nightlife handmade marketplaces throughout the year! NightLife events are an eclectic mix of science, music, and art. Our events include a handmade marketplace, live music, demonstrations and more.  Makers of all kinds are welcome to apply. Please note we can only host food vendors who are offering pre-packaged goods.

Nightlife of Tomorrow 

Do androids dream of electric penguins? Expand your mind with a night of futuristic art and science. NightLife is putting together a cyberpunk-themed evening and looking for folks to be a part of their themed marketplace. We’re looking for products and art that lean into the “high tech low life”  feel of cyberpunk—anything futuristic and/or incorporating tech is welcome to apply. Imagine Blade Runner at the Academy….see you there!
