It's almost summer, even if the fog is still rolling in. That means it's almost festival season in San Francisco, a season that was born out of the Summer of Love. Here's what you can't miss.

Perhaps no art form more exemplifies San Francisco's Summer of Love than the music of the era. It led an explosion of culture and expression in the balmy summer months of 1967, and a counterculture revolution swept through the city by the bay. Tens of thousands of young folks swarmed to the Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park, and they brought with them the sounds of change.
Celebrate San Francisco’s 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, which unleashed a cultural revolution that prominently included queer liberation. But don’t just celebrate it–live the summer like the original free-lovin’ hippies, with these amazing events.
