40th Carnaval Festival and Parade

Carnaval San Francisco

Celebrate the 40th annual Carnaval San Francisco! The 2–day festival will be held on Harrison Street between 16th and 24th Streets. Experience global cuisine, international music, dance, arts & crafts, and other fun activities and entertainment on every street corner for the entire family to enjoy. This year's theme: Roots of Carnaval / Raíces del Carnaval.

This is what SF/Arts curator Laura Fraenza has to say about 40th Carnaval Festival and Parade :

The raices (roots) of Carnaval run deep and wide through the Mission, and in its 40th year the festival honors its past and present, with vibrant and gorgeous poster art by Michael Rios (who created the art for Santana's multi-platinum "Supernatural" album) and hometown heroes Malo, who take the stage (and play their '70s era hit "Suavecito") before La Princesa de Salsa India, direct from Puerto Rico.
