San Francisco's Annual Italian Heritage Parade, the City's oldest civic event and the nation's oldest Italian-American parade and community celebration, winds its way from Fisherman's Wharf to North Beach. The parade, a San Francisco institution since it was established in 1868, promises to be bigger, better and more colorful than ever this year.
The Parade begins at 12:30 pm at the foot of Jefferson and Stockton Streets in Fisherman's Wharf, proceeds south through North Beach on Columbus Avenue, and ends in Washington Square in front of Saints Peter and Paul Church. Parade viewing is available throughout the route.
Admission to all parade activities, including the Ferrari Sports Car display in Washington Square Park and a variety of hands-on activities for children and families, is FREE!
