Robert M. Leon Memorial Fund

It is with profound sadness that HASF announces the passing of Robert M. Leon on March 22, 2021.

Robert was a Board Member of the Haight Ashbury Street Fair (HASF) since 1979 and served as the Executive Director/Producer from 2007 – 2019. In June 2019, Robert was awarded a Certificate of Honor from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in recognition of his commitment in Community Arts & Events.

Through his community involvement Robert had the opportunity to meet many people and build relationships that meant a lot to him.

We have set up a GoFundMe fund raiser for Robert’s final arrangements. Any contribution you can find in your heart to make would be greatly appreciated. On behalf of Robert’s friends and family, we are grateful for your support.

  • Haight St. Merchants

At the core of every significant neighborhood in San Francisco are the small businesses that help define the community's identity and viability.  The Haight-Ashbury District is no different and it hosts a variety of merchants that not only cater to the tourist trade but, most importantly, provide the services and goods that make this street a commercial hub.  

The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair (HASF) began in 1978 as a tribute to the commercial turnaround that occurred in the mid-70's and which continues today.  Our event provides an economic boost and exposure for the many merchants on Haight Street.  One of our goals to ensure that the businesses in our community also benefit from our annual celebration.  
 
HASF salutes the establishments that have lent their support to our event over the years.  We hope that you will become familiar with the Haight Street merchants and patronize their businesses before, during and after the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair.
