The Wharf’s PokéNIGHT is a gathering for all Pokémon GO players to meet up, make new friends, and explore the Fisherman’s Wharf district. For three hours (6-9PM), all 70 Pokéstops in the Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood will have active lures! This means that the 30-block area will be filled with Pokémon characters. Not only will the Wharf be overflowing with Pokémon, but you will also likely see a wide variety of water characters, normal/urban characters, and grass/park characters. Catch ‘em all!

There will not be a group leader, a set starting place, or a route. It is completely up to you to plan your route through the area. We suggest starting at either PIER 39 or Ghirardelli Square and walking along Jefferson Street and through Aquatic Park. Don’t forget to stop along the way for drinks, tasty food, a bit of shopping, and check out the views! Businesses are open past 9PM for more fun after the event.    

Participating Fisherman’s Wharf businesses will be offering great deals, raffles, and special events to Pokémon trainers. Present your Eventbrite ticket on your phone at time of purchase to receive your PokéNIGHT discount.

A map of all Pokéstops, Gyms, and businesses with special offers can be viewed at or at bottom of this webpage.
