Since 1978, Carnaval San Francisco has shared a welcoming heart to people from all ethnic backgrounds, gender orientations, religions, and socioeconomic statuses. Every year, more than 400,000 people attend our 2-day Festival and Grand Parade to enjoy the pageant of color and culture that exists in Carnaval. As we enter our 40th Anniversary, we want to welcome you all to join us in keeping the most vibrant and artistically diverse event in San Francisco going strong.

 

We are establishing a Donor Base Program, and our fundraising goal is $400,000. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your tax-deductible donation will make the difference between survival and extinction of this free, multicultural community celebration. 2018 marks our 40th Anniversary and we hope to celebrate by reaching our goal with your support!
