Arts + Culture50th Summer of Love gathering finally happening

50th Summer of Love gathering finally happening

Peace in the Park on Sat/23 features loads of music, talks, art, groovy vibes -- and Wavy Gravy, of course.

It’s been a long and winding road to bring a celebration of the 50th Summer of Love to the park — permit kuffufles, safety glitches, and communication frustrations abounded in the cosmic quest to feed the heads. But finally the huge, fifth annual Peace in the Park (Sat/23, 11am-6pm) is gonna be THE ONE — and it even features the valiant Boots Hughston, who tried so many times to make it happen during the actual summer. 

UPDATE: See comment below from the producers: While this celebration fetes the 50th Summer of Love, Peace in the Park is demanding permits for an official celebration, which this is not. Go and celebrate!   

This half-century long-hair blowout (not to be confused with the Human Be-In, which held a peaceful, oddly tech-funded 50th commemoration festival of its own this past January) promises to fulfill everyone’s dreams of spiritual connection, and perhaps a little astral projection, on the Music Concourse. Swing by before Folsom Street Fair and witness a whole different kind of Electric Ladyland.  

Full lineup and info below the poster.

  1. CLARIFICATION FROM PRODUCERS: This is Peace in the Park annual PEACE DAY in SF EVENT & NOT the Official Summer of Love 50th Anniversary. Like many events this year, we are honoring the 50th Anniversary but we are also DEMANDING the permit be given to the original Summer of Love Anniversary producers — The Council of Light. The amazing acts, performances and community of Summer of Love 50th Anniversary deserve their day in Golden Gate Park and the people of San Francisco have been demanding that loud and clear. We join that call to demand a permit to the Summer of Love.
