Once a year, on the second Sunday in June, the Haight-Ashbury community hosts a special celebration and everyone in the World is invited. Music is in the air, people dance in the streets, a festive atmosphere springs up and Haight Street, once again, becomes the center of Peace, Love and Happiness. The Haight Ashbury Street Fair is one of the most highly anticipated public events in San Francisco. The fair stretches along Haight Street from Masonic to Stanyan Street and features a main stage of entertainment at each end, but you never know who will be appearing as the line-ups are never advertised.
The event attracts over 100,000 people who take to the streets in an atmosphere reminiscent of the Summer of Love for which the event is famous. This, the 35th anniversary celebration, promises to live up to its world-famous reputation with entertainment for families with children, many local bands, top-drawer comedy, music, food and drink and an opportunity to celebrate with many other like-minded people. Admission to the Fair is free, so don’t miss out on this joyful and historical event.
