San Francisco Carnaval blossomed from its inception in Precita Park in the Mission District in 1979. Its growth and development is attributable to the passion of its founding members who longed for the traditional Carnaval celebrations of their native homelands.

Those founding members were composed of people from many cultures, and walks of life ranging from musicians, dancers, artists and a host of local residents that saw the joy and happiness that came when they gathered in this multicultural celebration.

This year's theme of the 36th Annual Carnaval is La Rumba de la Copa Mundial – Celebration of the World Cup. San Francisco’s Mission District will be bursting with soccer, international music, dance, global cuisine and arts & crafts from the many countries that celebrate Carnaval. The 2–day Festival takes place on Harrison Street between 16th and 24th Streets and will include all of these and other fun activities and entertainment on every street corner for the entire family to enjoy.
