What is MORTIFIED?
Mortified stars everyday adults sharing their most embarrassing and real childhood letters, lyrics, journals, home movies and artwork… in front of total strangers. Part comedy, part theater, part therapy.
The largest and longest-running project of its kind, Mortified produces comedic content for the stage, the page, and the web. Its latest book, Mortified: Love Is a Battlefield, is in stores everywhere.
Participants include a wide range of people, from professional performers (comics, celebrities, singers) to total amateurs (architects, ad execs, salesmen) all in the noble pursuit of self-degradation. Personal redemption through public humiliation.

Sunday, June 11
Haight Street, San Francisco
11 AM, All Ages
The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair is a non-profit organization [501(c)(3)] dedicated to celebrating the cultural history and diversity of one of San Francisco’s most internationally celebrated neighborhoods – The Haight-Ashbury District. Since 1978, HASF has produced the annual street fair that features arts and crafts, food booths, three musical stages, a Family Area (Children’s Alley) and more. It also serves as a means for community groups and mercantile vendors to interact with the public and expand their base.
The street fair was developed in response to the re-birth of the economic and residential spirit of the community in the mid-1970’s. With the assistance of the late San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, the first District 5 and openly Gay supervisor, a group of neighborhood merchants, activists and residents developed this organization with the idea of sponsoring a day long community celebration. The first Haight-Ashbury Street Fair was held on April 30, 1978, to the fanfare of the neighborhood and the City.
Since then, the street fair was moved to the second weekend in June where it has become a San Francisco cultural event. The two stages – Main Stage and Masonic Stage – hosts a variety of musical presentations that have featured such bands as the Merle Saunders Band, Jefferson Starship, The Tubes, The Commander Cody Band and Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix Experience) among others. It is also a showcase for up-and-coming artists and musical groups. The Alley Stage at The Children’s Aalley hosts a line-up of Family entertainment for our future street fair generation.
The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair has been awarded a California State Senate Resolution (2012), three San Francisco Board of Supervisor’s “Certificate of Honor” (2007, 2010 & 2011) and a ” Best of The Bay” award from the San Francisco Bay Guardian newspaper (2007).
The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair wishes to thank all of the residents, businesses, musicians, artists and attendees for their continual support and in providing a jovial, harmonious and inspirational atmosphere. We also thank our lucky stars for having had Pablo Heising (HASF President, 1978 – 2006) to guide us from the very beginning.
