 As pointed out by Amanda Witherell of the San Francisco Bay Guardian,
the future of our City's fabulous street fairs and music festivals is
threatened by policy changes and fee hikes currently being pushed by
various city departments.  In particular, the Rec and Parks Department
and Commission seems to have forgotten its mandate to serve the city as
a whole and instead, are making radical policy changes to appease select
neighbor groups and in one case, one individual who has harassed city
bureaucrats over sound levels at Sharon Meadow.

The SFLNC is joining with many other city groups to say we've had
enough, that the city's outdoor events are enjoyed by hundreds of
thousands of residents and tourists who come here for our world class
cultural attractions.  City policy should not be made in closed door
meetings between bureaucrats and small groups of neighbors, without
input from event organizers or thousands of attendees.

Please join the SFLNC in telling City politicians and bureaucrats that
our summer street events and music festivals are a crucial part of our
cultural fabric and need protection from neighbors who prefer the city
to sound like Walnut Creek.  Please tell the City that our special
events need protection not fee hikes that threaten their financial
viability.  Please tell the police department and mayor's office that
responsible adults should be able to drink a beer at city events without
being herded into small and unnecessary beer gardens that restrict our
civil liberties.  

Preliminary communications with Rec and Parks Commissioners indicate a
good chance that they will vote to deny North Beach Jazz Festival the
ability to serve beer and wine in Washington Square Park, which they
have done for 12 years without incident.  We need to express our outrage
that such a radical policy change is being made without adequate public
input or due process.  North Beach Jazz is a free festival whose budget
is largely paid by revenue from beer and wine sales.  Loss of that
revenue will kill the free festival, as simple as that.  It might be
understandable if the event had serious problems due to beer and wine
sales, but that has never been the case.  Rec and Park is taking away
the organizers ability to sell beer and wine to appease some neighbors
and an anti-alcohol local police captain.  No one asked the opinion of
the 35,000 people who attend the two day free event and who enjoy a
drink while listening to jazz in the Park

Please read the excellent articles in the Bay Guardian and ACT NOW to
save North Beach Jazz Festival and other city music festivals and street
fairs.  Instructions on how you can help are posted here from the
organizers of North Beach jazz.  Even if you are not a jazz lover, these
changes have a way of becoming city policy if we don't object and your
street fair or festival may be next.  ACT NOW!


"The death of fun "  By Amanda Witherell, SF Bay Guardian

Attack of the NIMBYs!  - By Marke B., SF Bay Guardian



*         North Beach Jazz Fest in Washington Square Park is a
12-year-old family friendly event that remains free by selling food,
beer, and wine

*         NBJF has always been permitted to sell alcoholic beverages in
Washington Square Park.  No problems have ever resulted from alcohol
sales at this event.

*         This year, the SF Police Department is pushing a "beer garden"
policy for outdoor events, forcing organizers to create small fenced in
21+ areas.   This policy limits access for those under 21, including
children with their parents.

*         Because of the access limitations created by beer gardens, the
SF Recreation and Parks Operations Committee voted on May 3rd to deny
NBJF the ability to sell alcohol in Washington Square Park.

*         This denial threatens NBJF since revenue from beverage sales
pay for the majority of festival expenses.  Without this revenue, NBJF
will go bankrupt. 

*         On Tuesday, May 30, 2pm in Room 416 of City Hall, the full
commission of SF Rec. & Park will vote to approve or deny their

*         SPEAK: Come to City Hall on the 30th and SPEAK YOUR MIND

(Please try to do ALL THREE if you can as we need your support every
step of the way) 


Here are some talking points for CUT & PASTE, and please be courteous in
all communications

*         Rec and Parks department policy should be made by all
stakeholders, not a select few

*         Beer and Wine sales have never been a problem at North Beach
Jazz Fest 

*         Without police imposed "beer gardens", people of all ages can
enjoy free jazz in Washington Square Park

*         Beer Gardens are an unnecessary intrusion on our civil

*         Responsible adults should be able to drink at licensed events
in City parks 

*         Without the revenue from beer and wine sales, the North Beach
Jazz Fest will cease to exist
