Submitted by the Event Organizer
To celebrate the high holiday of 4/20, take a free sing-a-long tour of the Haight’s radical 1960’s past with Wild SF Tours, San Francisco’s quirkiest tour company. (Tour is also available on Sunday, 4/19)
Free, but tickets are required to keep the tour size manageable. Donations are gladly accepted for your hard working guide. Suggested donation $10-$20.
Armed with a mini-guitar, your witty troubadour and historian-guide shares tales of the Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, Hell’s Angels, the Diggers, Ken Kesey’s Acid Tests, the Summer of Love, and the psychedelic substances that rocked a conservative America into a technicolor wonderland.
Meet at the corner of Oak and Masonic on the park side.
You’re encouraged to sing along, and lyric sheets will be provided for:
- Mellow Yellow – Donovan
- If You’re Going to San Francisco – Scott McKenzie
- Friend of the Devil – Grateful Dead
- The Vietnam Rag – Country Joe McDonald
- One Night Stand – Janis Joplin
- Janis – Country Joe McDonald
The 1.5 hour tour concludes right at the entrance to Golden Gate Park, a short walk to continue the afternoon’s 4/20 celebrations at Hippie Hill.
Wild SF Tours are journeys through San Francisco’s history, civil rights and radical social movements, presented as the residents of these neighborhoods would tell it. Get ready to make new friends, learn about the city, and have an unforgettable experience in San Francisco’s most legendary neighborhoods.
