Once a year, on the second Sunday in June, the Haight-Ashbury community hosts a special celebration and everyone in the World is invited. Music is in the air; people dance in the streets; a festive atmosphere springs up; and Haight Street, once again, becomes the center of Peace, Love and Happiness. This annual event is the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair, one of the most highly anticipated public events in San Francisco.
The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair (HASF) is a one-day festival that is held annually on the second Sunday of June that celebrates and showcases the Haight-Ashbury District of San Francisco. Since 1978, this event has allowed people from the neighborhood, the Bay Area and the world, an opportunity to come together for one big happening. HASF features live music, a variety of foods, a festive atmosphere and a chance to to dance down Haight Street on a sunny afternoon.

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.
