Spacious Grace is the annual free-form arts festival at the cathedral when we remove the pews and invoke the muse.
Now in its fifth year, Spacious Grace is the time when we open up our amazing space and invite you to experience the sprawling indoor labyrinth, soaring columns and glittering stained glass in a whole new way. We invite artists to present a wide range of cultural events — theater, dance, music and more. Just one of the enticing events: a world premiere by San Francisco’s leading contemporary dance ensemble. Events run from Friday, February 22 to Saturday, March 2.
