Date, time, itinerary for the San Francisco celebration

Fans across the Bay Area are expected to take to the streets on Monday for a Warriors Championship Parade on Market Street in San Francisco, celebrating Golden State’s dramatic win over the Boston Celtics for the NBA title on Thursday night.

If the post-game celebrations were any indication, Monday’s parade will likely be big.

Officials said the Warriors and City of San Francisco officials are hosting a “smooth and engaging celebratory event for fans, with the opportunity to share the up-close excitement of the 2022 NBA Championship with the Warriors, their players, coaches, legends and staff.” No speeches are expected, the team said.

Here’s what you need to know.

What time is the Warriors parade?

Monday, June 20, from approximately 11:20 a.m. PT until 2:00 p.m.

What is the Warriors parade route in 2022?

The parade will begin on Market and Main streets in downtown San Francisco. The Golden State Warriors will travel to Market and Eighth Streets, where the parade will end around 2 p.m. The stretch is just over a mile.

Will there be a rally at the end of the parade route?

According to BART, unlike previous victory celebrations in downtown San Francisco, there will be no post-parade rally at the Civic Center in 2022.

Can I watch the Warriors parade online?

Yes. There will be live coverage of the parade beginning at 10:30 a.m. from NBC Sports Bay Area as well as on the radio beginning at 6:00 a.m. on 95.7 FM The Game.

How do I get to the parade?

To avoid costly parking and potential traffic jams, fans are encouraged to use public transportation to get to town. BART officials urged people to take public transportation to avoid rushing for limited parking at city-owned downtown garages.

BART released “Top Tips for Driving BART to San Francisco’s Victory Celebration,” including a reminder that masks are required at all BART stations and on all trains, that parking at BART stations could be fill Monday and that “without a post-rally parade, there is no need to rush into the Civic Center station.”

BART says Embarcadero, Montgomery Street, Powell Street, and Civic Center stations can all be used to get to the parade route, and Embarcadero riders are discouraged from using the Market and Main Street entrance because it’s opens onto a private gathering area.

They also said Monday could be one of the busiest days in BART history.

Parking should be scarce, but those planning to drive can find spots at various garages near the parade.

Do I have to pay to go to the parade?

No it’s free.
