Free Concert Celebrating Cinco de Mayo at the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park

If you’re not trying to do Cinco de Drinko after work, maybe you’d like to celebrate more maturely in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo by taking in a free concert of Latin music at the bandshell in Golden Gate Park.

SF Rec & Parks and live music venue Peña Toribio, in association with Illuminate SF, are putting on a show at the Music Concourse bandshell (between the deYoung and Academy of Sciences) starting at 4 p.m. Thursday, and going until 7:30 p.m. The free concert is “celebrating the COURAGE of the VALIANT ‘little guy’ WORLDWIDE represented by the people of Puebla, Mexico facing a much stronger force, the French army,” per an event description.

It’s a fitting thing to celebrate in light of the war in Ukraine!

Performers include Callesón, salsa band Agua Pura, and rock band Los Nadies, with the latter playing from 6:20 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

No doubt there will be some debauchery elsewhere in the city this evening, this being the first Cinco de Mayo that people will be able to properly celebrate, in a (hopefully) fully vaccinated way, in three years.

But hey, maybe you just want to keep things a little more chill and listen to some holiday-appropriate tunes…

Otherwise, a San Fran Cinco pub crawl just kicked off at 2 p.m. at Mayes Oyster House on Polk.
