Fillmore Street comes alive with a neighborhood-wide Mardi Gras party during the annual Fat Tuesday in the Fillmore with a free blues concert.
Celebrating Fat Tuesday in the Fillmore with great blues, a second line processional, creative costumes, good food and colorful beads, the Village Project will host the 14th annual Mardi Gras, San Francisco Style on Tuesday, February 25th.
This year’s celebration again opens with a free community blues concert in the Fillmore Center Plaza, featuring blues songstress, Rhonda Benin, along with Freddie Hughes. The New Orleans style festival will bring San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Music District to life with Zydeco & blues, a colorful family friendly carnival atmosphere, and a second line parade led by the Gumbo Band. New Orleans’ own, Chief Takawaka will serve as Grand Marshall and will MC the event.
There will be face painting, street artists and performers. The free blues concert starts at 5 pm and ends at 7:30 pm.
