The 35th anniversary San Francisco Carnaval Parade on May 26th, 2013, is the city’s largest multi-cultural event and a breathtaking display of community and colors, drummers and dancers, traditions and fellowship. This Latin inspired moving party celebrates global heritage with this year’s theme of “Spanning Borders; Bridging Cultures.” From music and dancing of the Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica, Polynesia, Puerto Rico and Trinidad to African and Japanese drumming, the Memorial Day Weekend happening blossoms with intricate costumes, fantastic floats, stilt-walkers and thousands of people out to celebrate culture and international friendship.
Making its way through the Mission District with a simple message of love and peace through diversity, the Carnaval Parade is sure to awe and delight with its flashy dancers, passionate music, artistry, diversity and amazing percussion performances. Free to attend and family friendly, the Parade is a sensual intoxication both in spectacle of sight and sound and in the dynamic array of food from Latin America and the Caribbean. The Parade is the grand finale of the San Francisco Carnaval celebration and welcomes all who seek a message of peace and joy from the whole world.
