The Folsom Street Fair: A San Francisco Tradition

By September 18, 2012

Follow me on:

The Folsom Street Fair is not for the faint hearted. This adults-only street festival has been held up as the poster child for San Francisco's sinful reputation by scores of religious groups.

Falling on September 23rd this year, and taking over SOMA's Folsom Street between 7th and 12th, the Folsom Street Fair is an all day outdoor BSDM and leather party that leaves few holes barred.

The Folsom Street Fair, which is the largest leather and fetish festival in the world, will feature over 250 specialty vendors, two live music stages, a DJ dance tent, local food and drink offerings and a special women's only play area - the "Venus Playground".

Admission to the Folsom Street Fair is free although donations are expected, and the festival is easily accessible by the historic F Market Streetcar and other means of public transportation. Check the official website for more information.
