Announcement Read to the Haight Ashbury Round Table Conference, and Addressed to the People of San Francisco, and to all the Peoples of the World.

Original flyer, mimeographed on both sides, dated May 13th, 1967. 28x21.6cm.


The announcement begins: "This Summer, the youth of the world are making a holy pilgrimage to our city, to affirm and celebrate a new spiritual dawn…The activity of the youth of the nation which has given birth to Haight-Ashbury is a small part of a worldwide spiritual awakening…Already, individuals and groups who have been deeply into the situation are making preparations. Kitchens are being made ready. Food is being gathered…Hotels and houses are being prepared to supply free lodging. The Council for a Summer of Love expects to receive a huge tent, larger than a football field, which will be put up by the Haight-Ashbury community, and will be open all Summer."


The announcement goes on to promise small centres for meditation, and large festivals: a Summer Solstice Festival, a Tolkien Festival of Elves and Hobbits, Festivals of Christ, of Krishna, and of young and old. It concludes with the announcement of plans to buy "a beautiful statue of Saint Francis, located in Marin County, and carved from a holy California Redwood tree" and place it "in Golden Gate Park at the foot of Haight Street facing East toward the place of Dawn."
