From the organizer

50 years ago, San Francisco rocked the world…and it’s still rockin’. Be the first to get your groove on at ‘The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll.’ Live like its 1967 on this unforgettable day of celebration. The day includes an insider’s look at the show with artists of the exhibition, psychedelic sounds, screen-printing and poster making, a film screening of “Berkeley in the Sixties,” chalk painting, community activism and so much more. Spread the love and peace and see you there!
