San Francisco’s Italian-American Community is hosting the 149th Italian Heritage Parade on October 8, 2017! This annual celebration features Italian and Italian-American dignitaries, music, performances, floats and representatives of Italian and Italian-American organizations and businesses. The Parade action begins at 12:30 pm at the foot of Jefferson and Stockton Streets in Fisherman’s Wharf, proceeds South through North Beach on Columbus Avenue, and ends in Washington Square in front of Saints Peter and Paul Church. Parade viewing is available along the entire route.

If you’re looking for another exciting performance opportunity in 2017, this is the perfect local event! This opportunity is open to all current and past performing members of any Vanguard Music and Performing Arts program. The uniform will be determined at a later date and will be provided by SCV.
