About the Castro Street Fair:
This Event in San Francisco was started in 1974, in part by the efforts of Harvey Milk. It was a success from the start, and the very first Castro Street Fair drew a respectable crowd of 5,000 people. Since then, the Event’s popularity has surged, and it now attracts more than 300,000 people each year.

The Event in San Francisco is much more than just a gathering of men and women. It is also a chance to see the work of local artists, enjoy fabulous music, and much more. Both local and regional artists will display their work, and a number of other types of craftsmen will also show and sell their work. Multiple stages will welcome bands, dance troupes, and singers.

On the main stage are acts such as The San Francisco Lesbian Gay Freedom Band. On the Dance Alley Stage you’ll find acts such as Ambrosia Salad, Lady Craft, and many others. A newer addition to the Castro Street Fair is Kink Karnival Alley. This adults-only area features games, contests, and an array of naughty merchandise.

While many attendees consider this Event in San Francisco to be a lot of fun, it also helps to raise money for important causes. A list of this year’s charities will be available on the Castro Fair website as the Event draws nearer. One of the ways that money is raised is by collecting a donation at the gate. The suggested donation is $5 to $10 per person. The money goes straight to the charities, and everyone who donates will enjoy $1 off drinks throughout the Event.
