The event was shared on social media Wednesday through the event management and ticketing website Eventbrite.

According to event details, admission to the rally is free with registration and the event is scheduled between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Aug. 27 at the Cow Palace arena parking lots in Daly City.

Safety and health protocols will be in place, including masks and proof of vaccine or negative test within 72 hours for drivers and all attendees inside their cars, according to event information.
