Haight-Ashbury - San Francisco
During your visit to San Francisco, be sure to stop by one of the city’s most infamous and photographed locations – Haight-Ashbury. Known locally as The Haight, the area gained worldwide recognition during the 1960s “Summer of Love.” Today, it’s a popular hang-out with tourists and locals alike, especially during its annual Haight-Ashbury Street Fair.
The Haight Ashbury neighborhood is located near Golden Gate Park. It’s a fun and relaxing place to visit, walk your dog, or enjoy dining out at one of the popular restaurants.
Haight-Ashbury Street Fair
Every June, for the last 30+ years, a special one-day Haight-Ashbury Street Fair takes place on Haight Street (at the corner of Haight and Stanyan Streets, between Stanyan Street & Masonic Avenue).
The fair is “dedicated to celebrating the cultural, history and diversity of one of San Francisco’s most internationally celebrated neighborhoods. The first ever Haight-Ashbury Street Fair was held on April 30, 1978.
Relive your 60s hippie days and the “Summer of Love” at one of San Francisco’s most infamous neighborhoods. Enjoy Rock music, tie-died clothes, jewelry, food, specialty shops, and people-watching.
The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair has a very different feel than all of the other San Francisco summer street fairs. And the vendor booths and shops are also very different… and fun!
