#5 - May 12
(4 Bands performing each night / 1 winner each night)
FINAL BATTLE Fri, May 26th (Two bands will win and play this year's 40th HASF on Sunday June 11th)
HOW TO WIN, AND WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?:
Keep in mind, this is a Band competition AND FUNDRAISER for HASF. We want each act to turn out as many of their friends and fans as possible! HOW TO WIN? Simple! Get the biggest, best crowd response! There are NO JUDGES; only monitors who will gauge the crowd's response. 1 Winner will be chosen at the end of each night. So, get your people out to the shows, and get them to cheer loud and proud, while hopefully winning over some of the other people there as well. A second, and final "clap count" will happen at the end of the night, so KEEP YOUR CROWD IN THE VENUE UNTIL THE END!! You will be gauged by both "clap counts" )one after the band performs, and another at the end) to become the winner, so, again, hold your fans inside till the end.....If you are pro, well-rehearsed, and have presented your best material in the most energetic way possible, you can earn one of 2 open slots on the 2017 edition of the Fair, on Sunday June 11th!
NOTE: If 2 bands are close, we'll do another comparison, again asking the crowd to make the determination. If it's too close to call, we'll look at other factors, like how many people came to the show for your band, and how well the band conducted themselves. In the end, everyone wins, because this helps us to pay the enormous costs of putting on the Fair each year, which is FREE of charge to the public!

Every Haight-Ashbury Street Fair (HASF) has its own poster image since the event began in 1978. Each poster reflects the many facets that make this event memorable and one of the most anticipated events in San Francisco. Many of our posters have become Collector Items (good luck finding an original print of Poster #1).
And the winner of the 39th Haight Ashbury Street Fair poster contest is... CONGRATULATIONS Lily Prillinger!!
The official 2014 HASF Poster is now on sale via PayPal. The poster was designed by Shane Grogg who is a five-time winner of the annual HASF Poster Contest.

The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the cultural and historical significance of this district by sponsoring the annual community celebration and in supporting community programs that incorporate the neighborhood’s spirit of diversity, cooperation and humanism.
Since 1978, we have produced the annual, one-day street fair that allows the community to celebrate the cultural contributions this district has made to San Francisco. This festival provides the neighborhood with the opportunity to showcase the variety of mercantile, cultural and community services available in this district. By creating a festival atmosphere, the street fair creates a stage for many artisans, musicians, artists and performers to present their work to the public. And, as a community service, HASF enables many non-profit organizations a chance to conduct outreach campaigns.
Our activities are not limited to a one-day festival. We also sponsor other community events such as the annual Halloween Hootenanny that provides a safe environment for the children of the neighborhood to celebrate the spirit of Halloween. We hope to promote and create many more programs and events that help serve the cultural needs of the Haight-Ashbury and anyone else that want to join in on the fun.
