Hope you were there on Saturday as we selected the 2015 Carnaval SF King & Queen. A sold out house witnessed an exciting presentation that in the end resulted in a new Carnaval SF King and Queen. The winners of the competition will be the hosts, as King and Queen, of the 37th Annual Carnaval San Francisco Parade and Festival held on Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 23 to May 24, 2015. Contest winners will serve as the Official Ambassadors at the Carnaval San Francisco Grand Parade and a $500 cash prize! Thank you to outgoing King Delvis Savigne Frigñon & Queen Valencia Newton for a wonderful 2014!
