SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- In an effort to revitalize downtown and the city's art scene, San Francisco kicked off its "SFWednesdays" initiative this month, which will bring 30 free performances to public spaces in the city.

The performances will take place simultaneously at Union Square, Embarcadero Plaza and Mint Plaza on Wednesdays this summer.

The next performances are scheduled for this Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Performances are now planned through Aug. 18, but more will be added in September and October.
