This year’s theme was Resetting The Stage – showcasing San Francisco’s Performing Arts Community and looking forward to what is next for our City. San Francisco Chamber of Commerce CEO and President, Rodney Fong, said, “It is easy to get bogged down by all the challenges we face. But tonight’s theme is ‘Resetting the Stage’ and to me, that speaks to the unique opportunity we have to reimagine a stronger, more inclusive, San Francisco.”

The performing arts community was highlighted at the Ebbies, and there were performances by Disney’s FrozenThe American Conservatory Theater’s Young Conservatory, and Club Fugazi.
