44th Annual San Francisco Carnaval & Parade
May 28 - May 29
Carnaval is back in San Francisco for 2022! The annual, free, two-day festival and grand parade drawing thousands of attendees and featuring international music, dance, arts & crafts and cuisine — is making a celebratory return in 2022 after a two-year pandemic related hiatus.
The 44th annual event, themed “Colores de Amor – Inclusivity, Family and Community,” will take place Memorial Day weekend, May 28 and 29, 2022 in San Francisco’s Calle 24 Latino Cultural District. New to this year’s festival is the city’s first-ever community-lead, permitted cannabis garden; a new tech & gaming pavilion, and a LGBTQ dedicated stage.
Throughout the weekend, hundreds of Carnaval San Francisco artists will transform the district into an enormous celebration featuring music, dance, brilliant costumes and delicious food from Brazil, Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, Trinidad, Tobago, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Guatemala, Africa, Chile, Haiti and more.
