For over three decades, Carnaval San Francisco has been an event for many cultures to come together in one spirit to share their creative expression. It is a FREE festival in San Francisco’s Mission District over Memorial Day weekend that will showcase the very best Latin American and Caribbean cultural arts and traditions. Carnaval San Francisco is the largest multi-cultural celebration on the West Coast.

The Grand Parade on Sunday is a dazzling display of pageantry and color with great photo opportunities.

Date: Sunday, May 25, 2014

Meeting Time:  8:45 am to 9:00 am

Location:  The intersection of 24th and Mission Streets - there is a BART station here which is a great way to get to the parade.

Parking:  If you are planning to drive to the parade - be careful.  There are spaces with no parking meters in which you can park without paying anything but if there is a parking meter, you will probably to pay to park - even on Sunday. I recommend that you read all the signs as well as all the information on the parking meter itself because they are all different.  Tickets are expensive and you do not want to get one.

Cost: This is a FREE event.

    I ended up parking at 26th and Mission a little after 9:00, so I figured you'd moved by then. As you stated, the main thing is that we got some good shots. I would have liked to see you again, though.

    Didn't see many of you at 24th and Mission but can't beat the weather which was great. I enjoyed the shooting from under the large tree which provide nice shade. Hope everyone enjoyed the parade.

      I was by the McDonalds for a while. Maybe I missed it in the communications but I don't think it was called out that McDonalds would be the meeting point - I thought it would be the Bart Station, which is where I hung around for a bit at first till about 9am.

      Sorry I didn't meet up with you Edward. We got there kind of late and I didn't expect anyone to be hanging around. What a great event though! Thanks so much for putting this out there. If you hadn't posted this, I would never have known it was going on.

    Anyone going from Southbay?

  • Edward W.

    We will be meeting on the corner of 24th and Mission Streets between 8:45 and 9:00 am. There is a BART station right there so this is a good way to get to the parade. After 9 am, people will start moving to different locations to shoot so if you miss us, just enjoy the parade and take a lot of great images. On Saturday morning, I will send an email to everyone who has entered a yes rsvp with some additional information. Looks like the weather will be great so this should be a really wonderful event.

      28-105 mostly, but used[masked] also. Got them, bring them. When your standing on curb/sidewalk the dancers/parade is right in your face. See ya
