Carnaval San Francisco
Carnaval San Francisco cultivates and celebrates the diverse Latin American and Caribbean roots of the Mission District and the San Francisco Bay Area.
We accomplish our mission through dance, music, the visual arts and through creating spaces for community learning, school-based education, and advocacy.
Carnaval San Francisco is a beloved Memorial Day Weekend event featuring a Grand Parade and 2–day Festival, celebrating music and cultural elements from Latin American and Caribbean traditions.
Now in its fourth decade of celebration, Carnaval San Francisco has been an opportunity for many cultures to come together in one spirit to share their creative expression. Come celebrate with us at our FREE 2–day family festival in San Francisco’s Mission District over Memorial Day weekend, May 26th and May 27th, where we will showcase the very best Latin American and Caribbean cultural arts and traditions. Carnaval San Francisco is the largest multi–cultural celebration on the West Coast.
