What do you get when you host a street fair at an intersection known for being the birthplace of the San Francisco Renaissance and the Summer of Love? An incredible, can’t-miss event! One of the most famous areas of San Francisco, Haight-Ashbury, is hosting a street fair on Sunday, June 10, from 11am to 6pm.
The annual event, which started in 1978, is a celebration of all the things Haight-Ashbury is traditionally known for: peace, love, and happiness. Music fills the air, people dance through the streets, and everyone enjoys delicious local food and good times. The event will host numerous activities including three stages with live music and entertainment, a large vendors area (six blocks!) selling arts, crafts, and food.
The event is sponsored by a nonprofit organization also named the Haight Ashbury Street Fair. The organization is dedicated to celebrating the culture and history of Haight-Ashbury, which is an important part of San Francisco’s culture and is a symbol of the Summer of Love in 1967. The organization’s main event is the annual street fair, but throughout the year the nonprofit also runs several other events, including the “Halloween Hootenanny”, an event that provides a safe place for children to celebrate Halloween.
