Spring comes to Union Street with the Easter Parade and Spring Celebration

Parade participants show off their Easter bonnets each year in the Union Street Easter Parade.

Union Street will celebrate 28 fabulous years at the family-friendly Easter Parade and Spring Celebration on Sunday, April 21, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

Set on Union Street, between Gough and Fillmore Streets in San Francisco’s renowned historic shopping district, the Easter Parade and Spring Celebration is considered to be a one-of-a-kind street fair and parade that is anything but average or formal. In addition to the parade, there will be an Easter Bonnet contest, and photos with the Easter Bunny. New this year is an interactive children’s arts and crafts area and entertainment zone with costumed fairytale characters.

Considered to be “The Biggest Little Parade in San Francisco,” the Union Street Easter Parade is a charming procession showcasing the uniqueness of the San Francisco Bay Area. Beginning at the corner of Gough and Union Streets, parade contingents of enthusiastic participants will make their way down the five blocks of Union Street to end at Fillmore Street. Over the years, this wildly colorful parade has seen everything from vintage cars, roller-blading cows and sophisticated fashion to innovative floats and costumed characters.

Union Street’s famed restaurants will be open for business, serving special Easter menus in a comfortable outdoor bistro setting.

Don’t miss this fun-filled day for the entire family!
