Haight-Ashbury Street Fair Description

In the 1960s, Haight-Ashbury – a district in San Francisco, California – became the center of the hippie movement. The neighborhood was a haven for popular contemporary psychedelic rockers like Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, and Jefferson Airplane, and a local group called The Diggers provided free food and theater performances for area residents. Thousands of people from across the nation and world flocked to Haight-Ashbury to participate in the birth of America’s subculture.

The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair, held on the second Sunday of every June since 1977, exemplifies and celebrates the neighborhood’s unique past – as well as its present and future – with song, arts and crafts, food, and drink.

Children and adults alike can enjoy the musical performances that take place on three separate stages -- past performers at the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair have included The Tubes, Chuck Prophet, and Jenni Williams -- or simply stroll along the six-block vending area that features booths sponsored by popular local businesses. Haight-Ashbury Street Fair attendees can also pop in to historic bars like Club Deluxe, where they can enjoy an excellent White Russian and listen to some sweet jazz tunes with well-dressed local youths.

Admission to the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair is free. You can arrive in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood via Metro. Don’t miss out on the best celebration of America’s subculture in the country!
