About San Francisco Cultural Arts Traditions (SFCAT)

The Mission of SFCAT in Their Words

San Francisco Cultural Arts Traditions, (SFCAT) strives to make multiculturalism a tangible reality by uniting people in the celebration of cultural arts traditions with music, dance, artistry and food,  and through this endeavor, benefit our communities.

San Francisco’s Carnaval celebration was initiated in Precita Park 32 years ago by its multicultural and multiethnic founders who dearly missed traditional Carnaval celebrations in their respective home countries.  Musicians, dancers, artists and a host of local residents continue today to join together in San Francisco’s Mission District to create a rich fantastical day long tapestry woven throughout what must be one of America’s most colorful and joyful parades.

The San Francisco Cultural Arts Traditions, current sponsor of the parade and formally established in 2009, is a cultural arts and education non profit organization comprised of members who celebrate both Carnaval and Cinco de Mayo.  Please visit their website for further information on their efforts in the community.
