This year’s “King of the Streets” event will feature food, arts and crafts vendors, lowrider swag, a DJ, and live entertainment.
“The San Francisco Lowrider Council was formed in response to community efforts to fight the racial injustice that made the council necessary to resist the San Francisco Police Department’s racist aggression against Latinos and people of color 41 years ago,” said Roberto Y. Hernández, founder and president of the San Francisco Lowrider Council.
The San Francisco Lowrider Council history is steeped in blood, sweat and tears as a trajectory of strong community service. Over four decades of service include but are not limited to working with the United Farm Workers, Our Mission No Eviction, Close the Camps, Free the Children, Immigration Reform, Police Reform, Black Lives Matter & Justice for Alex Nieto and more recently supporting the Mission Food Hub distribution of groceries to 9,000 families.
The 41th Anniversary “Kings of the Streets” Lowrider Show participants can still join with a $30 registration fee for cars and $20 for motorcycles. General tickets for show attendees to the event are $20.
