About Jingletown: Jingletown acquired its name at the turn of the century when Portuguese cannery workers whose earnings would “jingle” in their pockets at the end of the day as they walked home from the factories in the area, signifying prosperity. Over time the neighborhood went into disuse, and in the early 1980’s artists realized the potential and converted many of the neglected warehouses into functioning live/work spaces. It is now a thriving artist community and one of the fastest growing arts district in the Bay Area.
In a time when our neighborhood has been changing dramatically, the goal of the Jingletown Arts and Business Community is to heighten awareness about the rich and diverse population of working and exhibiting artists and the creative opportunities in Jingletown.
