Paseo Artístico, the Mission District’s historic Latinx art walk, returns June 8. The free, bilingual event features art shows, live concerts and performances across cultural venues on 24th Street. 

This upcoming Paseo will celebrate the neighborhood’s street vendors, artists, and small businesses. Rooted in Native and Latin American movable markets, street vending serves as a cultural and economic backbone of the Mission.

Since San Francisco imposed a vending ban along the bustling-but-troubled Mission Street in November 2023, the street vendors who’ve long depended on the highly-trafficked street have been struggling to make ends meet. 

To help support their sales, Paseo will host a dance performance at La Placita vendor market, the city’s last remaining sanctioned site for displaced Mission vendors. There will also be additional vending sites along 24th Street. 

Here’s the schedule of events:

12:00pm | Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, Mission Street & 25th Street | Teatro Comunitario directed by Berta Hernandez En Español screen printing and artisan market

The Paseo Artístico arts walk has been hosted along the Calle 24 Business Corridor for the past eight years. Housed under the arts and media nonprofit Acción Latina, Paseo and El Teco work together to serve San Francisco’s vibrant Latinx communities. To learn more about Paseo Artistico, visit
