About the Epicenter
EpicenterSF is a community calendar and directory website for San Francisco’s Central Market area including Civic Center, Tenderloin and SOMA neighborhoods. Our goal is to offer a valuable service to the community to promote the diverse range of events, special programs, community meetings and opportunities that happen in this area daily.This site project is brought to the community through the collaboration of three neighborhood benefit corporations – Central Market, Civic Center, and North of Market-Tenderloin, San Francisco Arts Commission and the Mayors Office of Economic and Workforce Development. EpicenterSF launches the site as a Beta release in early 2013. We encourage your feedback to help us make the site and its features the best they can be!
The Central Market Community Benefit Corporation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) community-based organization formed in 2006 to provide programs and services to improve the quality of life experienced in the public realm of San Francisco’s Central Market Community Benefit District.
The goal of the Civic Center Community Benefit District is to improve coordination and communication around the management, image, safety, beautification and cleanliness of the greater Civic Center area for the benefit of patrons, residents, employees, merchants, property owners and other visitors within the district.
The Office of Economic and Workforce Development’s (OEWD) mission is simple – we support the ongoing economic vitality of San Francisco. Under the direction of Mayor Edwin M.

The San Francisco Arts Commission is the City agency that champions the arts in San Francisco. We believe that a creative cultural environment is essential to the City’s well-being. Our programs integrate the arts into all aspects of City life. The Commission was established by charter in 1932 (Charter sections 5.103 and 16.106).
