FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Carnaval San Francisco “LIVE STREAM 2020”-- Sunday May 24, 2020 2PM - 4PM PST
Dancers, Drummers, Musicians and More Slated to Participate in The 42nd Annual Celebration SAN FRANCISCO (May 13, 2020) – Carnaval San Francisco - Dave Martinez Ventures brings talent, tech & community together along with Mission District’s Calle 24 Latino Cultural District for its 42nd annual celebration. The purpose of this year’s celebration is to help raise funds to help feed 6,000 families in the Mission District where COVID19 has disproportionately affected Latinos.
According to a recent UCSF study: 1of nearly 3,000 residents and workers in a Mission District census tract who were tested in late April for active infection with the novel coronavirus, an overwhelming number (95 percent) were Hispanic or Latinx. The majority of those who tested positive (82 percent) reported having been financially affected by economic fallout of the pandemic and only 10 percent reported being able to work from home.
"Our community needs to stay strong, and in order to persevere it needs to stay healthy,” said Carnaval San Francisco Co-founder and Artistic Director Roberto Hernandez. “We welcome everyone to take an introspective look at their mental, spiritual and physical health, and seek balance and well-being, particularly in tumultuous times.”
San Francisco’s Carnaval celebration will feature music, dance, brilliant costumes from Latin America and the Caribbean.
Special Guest Address:
The live streaming event, powered by LATINLIVE™, HOWLiVE, Jaffe Events & Earshot Entertainment will include today’s top Latino artists including heritage artists, Mardi Gras & Fat Tuesday festivities. Proceeds will go to help feed 6,000 families. Donations will be accepted during the stream with a Donate Button.
