Description

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.

The 2day 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.
