The Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade is a celebration of stupidity, so wear something silly, bring your solo socks, spare pennies and losing lottery tickets and gather with all the other stupids at the foot of Market Street to do the silliest walk of all.

38th Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade
Friday, April 1, 2016 | Noon
Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco

Though no details are available for 2016 yet, the sidewalk parade typically proceeds to make ritual stops at the Pacific Stock Exchange, where they encourage you to bring your lonely solo socks (i.e. the “sock” exchange), then to the “Banker’s Heart” sculpture to throw your pennies at it. Finally, the parade stops at none other than the Federal Reserve HQ, where you will part with your losing lotto tickets.

Odd costumes, noise makers, satiric signage on the ‘business of religion’ and ‘the religion of business’ are encouraged.
