The Come Out & Play San Francisco Festival happens every year in the fall. But CO&P SF is active all year round, running games all over the Bay Area.


Sandbox Playtests

Sandbox is a monthly playtesting event. Think of it as an open mic for real world game design, participatory theater, and immersive experiences.

Each month we create a space where you can test out your adventures and receive criticism on how to make it better. It’s open to everyone, whether you’re a veteran or novice designer. Invent a game/experience and try it out! Or come try out someone else’s.

You can contact us at Got an idea for a theme? Want to run a test at some weird outdoor location? Let us know.

For more info, check out the Sandbox Playtests group on Facebook.


Come Out & Play Festival

Every fall, the San Francisco edition of the Come Out and Play festival brings the Bay Area together for a full weekend of games played in public spaces. From playgrounds to galleries to to malls to sidewalks, the Come Out and Play festival fills the city with new, unique, and playful experiences.

The 2016 Season will feature a weeklong main festival (Sep. 24 – Oct. 2), as well as special events throughout the fall! Stay tuned for updates.
