Since 1978, Carnaval has been more than a celebration, it’s been a space to reconnect with our African, Indigenous, and Mestizo roots.
The stories, dances, and colors of our forefathers come to life in the parade and festival to celebrate our triumphs and struggles. Although our roots are spread throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, our cultures unite in our annual Carnaval tradition.
For the 40th anniversary of Carnaval, Acción Latina and Carnaval SF are joining forces to bring you a very special group photo exhibition, featuring iconic images from four–decades of history of the Mission District’s biggest annual party.
