About this Event

This tour includes some of the oldest signs in the city and although they may no longer light up, it is a treasure hunt to discover these beautiful signs hidden in plain sight. We save the best for last: the glowing signs are at the end of the tour at twilight.

Spend an evening with San Francisco Neon authors and photographers Al Barna and Randall Ann Homan. Tours feature local history with architectural and graphic design insights to San Francisco's unique legacy of surviving neon signs. Photography and a lively Q&A are encouraged. Be prepared to walk 2 miles for approximately 1.5 hours, with rest stops. 

Reservations details: Please include your cell number in case of any last-minute changes due to obstructions or stormy weather. We'll email you all the details for your tour, including public transit and parking tips.
