The Carnaval parade. Mint-condition lowriders. Live bands with dancing. The streets and venues of the Mission offer the most fun events in San Francisco — any time of year.
Experience what the Mission has to offer. And remember to #shopsmall at over 400+ businesses on #MissionStreetSF for that hard-to-find item or even a unique birthday present.
Rumba music originated in the Afro-Cuban neighborhoods of Havana and Matanzas as the soundtrack to community, partnered dancing and get-togethers as a means of cultural expression. Its global diaspora means rumba rhythms have found their way into other genres of music such as country, rock, and blues, and continue to impact the genres of today. Rumberos de Radio Habana bring their own contribution to the Red Poppy on the fourth Sunday of each month for a free afternoon of beat-making, hip-shaking, and good company.
Free; donations accepted for musicians ($5-10)
