Carnaval

Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Mission District

Memorial Day weekend in San Francisco means that it's once again time for Carnaval. As a proud sponsor for this event, look for our booth at stall 126. For 41 years, this free two-day festival, which runs along Harrison Street between 16th and 24th streets, will feature multiple stages for live music, performances and DJs.  In addition to music and dancing, there will be great food, arts & crafts and plenty of entertainment for the kids. This year's theme is La Cultura Cura/Culture Heals and the concept is as simple as it is complicated, which is to use the power of individual and shared culture to build support systems for the community while also aiming to help heal the polarized political environment in America today.


How to Get There on Muni: The 9 San Bruno, 12 Folsom-Pacific, 14 Mission, 14R Mission Rapid, 22 Fillmore, 27 Bryant, 33 Ashbury/18th St., 48 Quintara/24th Street, 49 Van Ness/Mission, 55 16th Street and 67 Bernal Heights routes will take you close to the festival.

Muni Service Note: There are no planned service changes for the festival, though all listed routes may also experience some increased ridership and minor delays in the area of the event.

Carnaval Grand Parade

Sunday, 9:30 a.m.
Mission District

The highlight of the weekend will undoubtedly be the Grand Parade filled with a cavalcade of exotically festooned dancers, lively floats and musicians marching in rhythm. Beginning at Harrison and 24th street, the parade will proceed west on 24th Street then move north along Mission Street until it reaches 17th Street where the parade will end. 

How to Get There on Muni: The 9 San Bruno, 12 Folsom-Pacific, 14 Mission, 14R Mission Rapid, 22 Fillmore, 27 Bryant, 33 Ashbury/18th St., 48 Quintara/24th Street, 49 Van Ness/Mission, 55 16th Street and 67 Bernal Heights routes will take you close to the festival.

Muni Service Note: The 12, 14, 14R, 22, 27, 33, 48, 49, 55 and 67 will see reroutes. Again, all listed routes may see some increased ridership and minor delays in the area of the event.

Remember that you can take Muni for the entire day for a single $5 fare. The new $5 Day Pass, available on MuniMobile®, is part of Muni’s recent fare changes. The pass is intended to encourage a safe, convenient way to pay your fare and quickly board Muni vehicles, which reduces overall travel time for everyone. The $5 Day Pass is Muni bus, rail and historic streetcars only.
