Picture 80Famous for its top notch music scene (Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Metallica, Janis Joplin- just to name a few) and its “summer of love” appeal, the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair is a phenomenon like none other.  It was developed by Harvey Milk, the first openly Gay District supervisor who was played by Sean Penn in the 2008 eponymous Gus Van Sant movie. The annually held fair promises to feature plenty of arts and crafts, live music, food booths, and idyllic hippie hand-holding circles. It’s been going strong for 28 years, so it’s safe to say that there are very few places a person could go on June 13th that would have more cultural diversity than the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair.
