It’s Your District (IYD) is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, a legendary phenomenon remembered throughout the world as a counterculture gathering in San Francisco, most notably the Haight-Ashbury district.

Working with Sunday Streets, IYD is sponsoring the arts and culture hub, thereby hosting the 2017 Summer of Love Street Festivals to be held at the 8 Sunday Street locations. These will include Summer of Love exhibitions, art projects, live performances, and family-friendly activities.

Activity Hubs will be located between 14th and 16th and 24th and 26th, with dozens of free activities in between offered by local merchants. There will be live music, education and professional development resources, blood pressure screenings, food demos and more. Combined with the always festive atmosphere of the Valencia Corridor, March 12th will be a special day to explore old and new.
