Per a press release, the festival’s name is an ode to the Portola Festival of 1909, “which was a celebration of the re-opening of San Francisco, three years after the earthquake of 1906 decimated the city. It was set up to publicize to the world that San Francisco was back open and ready to host tourists.”
