Register for Journey
Journey to the End of the Night is designed to change the way you see San Francisco; to put players in the middle of a cinematic chase scene through a city at night. Find out why thousands play each year.
Journey will always be free to play. But it is not free to put on. And we do not accept corporate donations. Help us make this an unforgettable experience for thousands of San Franciscans.
Our volunteers do everything from helping with registration to photography to operating the various stations throughout the game. Volunteers also design and run the checkpoints runners experience throughout the night. Let us know if you’d like to help.
Every year thousands of players Journey throughout San Francisco. If you’d like to learn more, let us know.
What is Journey?
Journey to the End of the Night is an annual San Francisco street game that has been running since 2006. The game is free and open to the public. Its like a game of virus tag throughout the city with thousands of your closest friends: players try to make it through the checkpoints spread around the city without getting tagged, and if they are tagged by a chaser, they become a chaser as well. Teams of artists set up interactive checkpoints that the players try to reach as they travel through the evening. Players who manage to find all the checkpoints without getting tagged will go to the endzone to celebrate sweet sweet victory. The game was originally designed by San Francisco natives Sam Lavigne and Ian Kizu-Blair as well as Sean Mahan, and it has since been run in cities around the globe.
