By the California Historical Society

The spring and summer of 1967 brought nearly 100,000 outsiders, activists, and dreamers to San Francisco. These young people traveled from far and wide to join a community of artists, musicians, poets, and radicals that would change the world—influencing popular culture through music and art; launching the natural and organic foods movement; protesting war with peace and love; and ushering in an era of greater connectivity through the growth of the personal computer movement.

This anniversary is more than “sex, drugs, & rock and roll.” It is the story of how today’s San Francisco came to be.

The California Historical Society is leading a regional effort to commemorate the Summer of Love with exhibitions, concerts, events, and other activities in the Bay Area and across California. Corporations interested in supporting this effort are encouraged to reach out to Adam Hirschfelder, Director of Strategic Initiatives via email at ahirschfelder@calhist.org
