This little strip of land, about three-quarters of a mile long and one block wide and a few blocks north of the Haight has been the site of many concerts including those by Big Brother, The Grateful Dead, The Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix.
On October 6, 1966, the day LSD became illegal, the “Love Pageant” was held in the Panhandle. The performers were Janis Joplin, Wildflower, The Grateful Dead and the Electric Chamber Orkustra.
On April 14, 1967, Country Joe and the Fish performed in the Panhandle on the eve of the “Peace March”. On May 24, 1969, the “Haight-Ashbury Festival” was held here.
