Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) connects the San Francisco Peninsula with Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont, Walnut Creek, Dublin/Pleasanton and other cities in the East Bay. For more than 35 years BART has provided fast, reliable transportation to downtown offices, shopping centers, tourist attractions, entertainment venues, universities and other destinations for Bay Area residents and visitors alike.

Arts Providers Alliance of San Francisco

The Arts Providers Alliance of San Francisco is a group of professional artists and arts organizations dedicated to the advancement of arts education in San Francisco. APASF members are all actively engaged in providing children and youth with educational opportunities in the creative arts. The APASF provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among members and the arts education field at large.

East Bay Express

The East Bay counties are very different from the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area, the East Bay Express is a very different paper. Every week, the Express provides the only medium dedicated exclusively to the East Bay. From our authoritative cover stories; to our in-depth local reporting, arts and dining coverage; to the area's most comprehensive weekly calendar; the East Bay Express has been this vibrant region's leading voice since 1978.

SF Weekly

SF Weekly is San Francisco's smartest publication. That's because we take journalism seriously, but not so seriously that we let ourselves be guided by an agenda. In fact, we cherish our political independence: The paper has repeatedly challenged massive public subsidies for private developments by leading San Francisco business interests--but it has also blamed liberal political advocates for fostering inhumane conditions at a city jail. Add to our array of public-interest stories a comprehensive entertainment guide--led by incisive, award-winning writing on the cultural scene--and you'll see why SF Weekly has acquired a loyal audience of active, urban professionals, an audience as diverse as the city we cover.


Through day-to-day advocacy, education, and working partnerships with government and community agencies, the SFBC is dedicated to creating safer streets and more livable communities for all San Franciscans. Our active 9,500 members represent San Franciscans of all ages, from all neighborhoods, who are working towards more safe, efficient, and green ways to move around our city. Because of our efforts, the number of residents biking for transportation has doubled in the past 10 years. Today, over 30,000 San Franciscans use bicycles as their primary mode of transportation.

SF Station
Since 1996, SF Station has been providing users with comprehensive and up-to-the-minute Event Calendar listings, a dynamic Business Directory, and a "hip and progressive" editorial voice that reviews anything from films, music shows, restaurants, retail shops, and more.

By providing the most pure, premium, seasonal whole leaf teas possible, we hope to introduce to the consumer the enjoyment, health benefits, and the serenity that comes with drinking tea. Teance is named for tea and all of the elegant thoughts associated with it: nuance, ambiance, elegance. The best teas from the Far East-competition winners, rare and available nowhere else in the country-can be sampled at Teance. The KPFA Crafts & Music Fair, would like to thank Teance for their generous donations.
Jeremiah's Pick Coffee

It was a long love affair with coffee that led Jeremiah Pick to the specialty coffee business 20 years ago. Then in 1993 he started our company, a business dedicated to providing the finest coffees to supermarkets, restaurants and natural food stores. What sets our coffees and our company apart? A simple concept: "Right Roast. Right Taste." Starting with the finest green coffee beans, selected by Jeremiah, each small batch is hand-roasted and married carefully to the right color profile to highlight the nuances of each coffee's origin and varietal character. The KPFA Crafts & Music Fair, would like to thank Jeremiah's Pick Coffee for their generous donations.
