The Port of San Francisco was established in 1863 just following the Gold Rush era, while Abraham Lincoln was president and the country was embroiled in a Civil War.
On Wednesday, April 24th at 11am, the Port will hold a "Big Birthday Bash" at Pier 39 to celebrate 150 years of activity.
Until the end of the year, the Port will host other events and activities on the waterfront, from Heron's Head Park (Pier 98) north to Hyde Street Pier. Events will highlight maritime and cultural history.
Maritime Day on the Waterfront, a day-long celebration, is planned for Sunday, April 28th from 10am to 5pm. Activities will include public boat tours, bicycle tours, exhibits, lectures, public tours, a film festival and interpretive displays.
