Cesar Chavez Parade & Festival
Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Mission District

Nearly a quarter century after his passing, Cesar Chavez continues to inspire and influence. Aiming to keep his message of labor solidarity and social justice alive, the Cesar Chavez Festival will celebrate his life, legacy and activism.

This year’s festivities will begin with a parade. Starting near Dolores Park, the parade will head down 19th Street turn onto Mission Street and end at 24th and Folsom streets. The accompanying street fair featuring arts and crafts, music, sidewalk sales and a classic car show will be held on 24th Street between Folsom and Bryant streets.

Public transportation will be your best option. Muni service on 12 Folsom/Pacific, 14 Mission, 14R Mission Rapid, 27 Bryant, 48 Quintara/24th Street, 49 Mission/Van Ness, and 67 Bernal Heights will get you close to the celebration.

Muni service note: Due to street closures the 12 Folsom/Pacific, 14 Mission, 14R Mission Rapid, 48 Quintara/24th Street, 49 Mission/Van Ness, and 67 Bernal Heights will have service adjustments.

Glen Park Festival
Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Glen Park

Since 1997, the Glen Park Festival has evolved into a popular, community supported family friendly event that promotes the very best of Glen Park’s eateries, artisans and musicians. A children’s entertainment area will feature a jumpy house, story time and fire trucks — not to mention puppet making and a visit by the tooth fairy.

Parking in the area will be limited, so consider taking public transportation. Muni service on the J Church Line, 23 Monterey, 35 Eureka, 36 Teresita, 44 O’Shaughnessy and 52 Felton routes will take you into Glen Park.

Muni service note:  the 35 Eureka, 36 Teresita and 52 Felton routes will have re-routes, while other service routes may see an increase in ridership.

Winter Storm Information:

The Department of Emergency Management has prepared a Comprehensive Guide to Everything El Niño in order to prepare and assist people on what to know and what to be aware of during the storms. We've been preparing for months and know you'll want to plan your trip before you head out into inclement weather. Sign up for Muni Alerts to get real-time service updates on your most used Muni routes and lines.
