San Francisco's season of street fairs, festivals and block parties begins ramping up in May, and this week is chock-a-block with 'em. The city's first Asian Contemporary Art Week has talks by curators and artists, performance art in action, parties and exhibits, and is just one of many events for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Civic Center, the Asian Art Museum, and Little Saigon will be taken over on Saturday by the Asian Heritage Street Celebration. The San Francisco International Art Festival and Young at Art Festival continue through Sunday, and if you're a DIYer, you shouldn't miss the Maker Faire; our May events calendar has details on all of them.

Sunday, of course, is the incomparable Bay to Breakers.  Find out the essentials, whether you're a Bay to Breakers runner (official or unofficial) or you're a sideline spectator.
