On Saturday, two big marches, the Walk for Life demonstration and the Women’s March, are planned to hit Market Street, both of them heated events as they following Friday’s presidential inauguration. The turnout is expected to be huge.

.Both events will march down Market from Civic Center to Justin Herman Plaza/Ferry Building. The Walk for Life March will gather in Civic Center Plaza sometime around 12:30 p.m., and then head down Market at around 1:30 pm.

The Women’s March will form anywhere from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will start heading down Market at 5 p.m.

Market Street from Civic Center to Embarcadero will be closed for most of the afternoon. Public transit will be the best option for those looking to travel into the city to attend either event.

According to SF MTA, “Muni will reroute bus lines that travel on or across Market Street east of 10th Street. Customers can expect delays and are encouraged to use the Muni Metro subway to enter or leave the downtown area.”
