La Fiesta de Las Americas celebrates the independence of various Latin American countries as well as the unique culture, arts and music that can be from Patagonia all the way to the Arctic Circle.

The event will feature live performances, wrestling matches, and much more family friendly fun.
How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take the 12 Folsom/Pacific, 14 Mission, 14R Mission Rapid, 27 Bryant, 48 Quintara/24th Street, 49 Van Ness/Mission or the 67 Bernal Heights routes to the area of the event.
Muni Service Notes: The 48 will have reroutes in the area of the event and all routes may experience some minor delays and increased ridership.
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.
