“The theme of Carnaval, El Corazón de San Pancho/The Heart of San Francisco refers to the very essence of what it means to identify with the enriching love that this city has to offer. It’s about belonging, community-building, diversity and celebrating multicultural arts. It means passion, strength, and empathy. It recognizes a common struggle while promoting solidarity and compassion. It’s an acknowledgement that culture cures what’s ailing us, or “la cultura cura.”” Says Sylvia Ramirez, Director of Digital Content for Carnaval San Francisco.
