Welcome to the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club

Welcome to the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club (SFIAC), San Francisco's premier Italian fraternal organization located in the heart of San Francisco's Little Italy, North Beach. The SFIAC traces its roots back to 1917 and since 1936, has been located at its present location at 1630 Stockton St.

The SFIAC is the heartbeat of the Italian community in San Francisco and has catered weddings, parties, and cultural- and community-based events to Italians (and non Italians) for generations. Each year, the SFIAC hosts one of America’s oldest foot races (the Statuto Race), a Columbus Day celebration, an Italian Festival, a bocce tournament and picnic, regional dinners and spectacular member-only events.
